Ready to Buckle Up for My First Sew Along!
This is it! I'm taking the plunge and have "signed-on" for my first Sew Along!
I've been a lurker on Gertie's Blog for Better Sewing for quite some time now, and an avid one at that. As a matter of fact, I take pride in my sneaky, stalkerish, lurking abilities which are not limited to blogs by any means. With one quick post, however, Gertie got the better of me and I caved, leaving an excited, introductory comment on her blog. What was this devious post about? Nothing other than a Sew Along! **gasp** I am so weak.
As a coat lover, I've been itching to make myself some fabulous fall coats (I am not so disillusioned as to believe I could make myself a coat that will keep me toasty warm at -10 degrees F). What could be better than a Sew Along for this fabulous Lady Grey coat by Colette Patterns?? Oh, I know. The sew along PLUS the fact that this gives me an approved excuse to buy more fabric, as the beautiful green/silver plaid and beige/chocolate plaid just aren't right for this. Poor, poor Stephanie - right?
I have the pattern ordered, and it looks like the process will begin mid-September. More to come!!
