Sewing like pictures.

I finished my purple fall jacket yesterday.  Took all sorts of pictures, even had my husband take a picture of me wearing it!! 

My camera didn't have the memory card in it.  :(

It took the pictures, but there is no way to get them off the camera and onto my computer.  (It's old).

Along with finishing the coat, I cut out my daughter's dress in the good fabric and she came over to try it on.  It's huge!!  I'm not sure what I did wrong...the muslin came out good.  I think I just added too much at the bottom.  Either way, it is fixable.

Besides that I have been doing alot of alterations.  Which is good, I need the extra money.  Saving up for a weekend trip to Virginia at the end of the month.  Family wedding.  It will be in Leesburg....anybody know of some fabric shops around there??  I was looking at the SR Harris Fabric Store in Minnesota...all the fabrics....maybe we could make a roadtrip out of that next summer!!  But I would have to take a paperbag....because I would have anxiety issues with all those choices...yikes.

well....tonight pictures of my jacket.....

hey there! I just got back from afternoon errands that included SR Harris, poured some coffee and sat down to take a blog-break! Fun to see you mention it! I love to complain about the dearth of fabric shops in Minneapolis, but at least we have SR Harris in it's overwhelming, um, overwhelming-ness....

Oh no! Fashion shoots are tough, and then to go to all that work for the shots not to be there - UGH!

I can't wait to see your jacket. I love purple!!!!
Leesburg????? I don't know of any fabric stores there, but if you find any let me know. We travel through VA often going to see our girls in the NE.
I haven't commented lately but I have been checking out your blog. You have been busy.
