These tiny bundles of joy, born yesterday, are my brother and SIL's children: Sahm (the boy, left) and Uma (the girl, right). I'm thrilled and promise to provide more updates in the near future.
In other news, all of my recent sewing work has been for my two FIT classes. Here's the latest project from my draping class, a wool crepe cowl neck top (the cowl's in back -- you can see it here.) trimmed with what my professor calls French binding -- essentially hand-finished 1 1/4" bias made from my fashion fabric. I'd never heard the term French binding before, have you?
Also this week, I finally reworked the collar and waistband on my camo jacket. The waistband was too tight and the collar....I don't know, it just wasn't what I wanted.
It now looks like this: camo on top collar, navy wool melton on under collar.
And that's it for now.
I'll be posting more regularly as life resumes its normal rhythm.
Have a great day, everybody!
