Suddenly it’s become unseasonably cold and wet, and the prospect of making and wearing these pinstripes has gone South to warmer climes. There’s a more permanent solution, but it has to wait until Monday holiday, when I can get to the fabric store sale.
What’s the solution? Delightful Debi Fry, My Happy Sewing Place, just started up her ABC’s of vintage sewing series again, and the pinstripes needed her info on underlining. Thank you once again, Ms Debi!
You know what that means: the green fleece hat moves under the needle sooner! In fact, it got cut out last weekend, thread chosen, and stitches tested. Well, it is 3/8” thick per side. The pattern is Folkwear #269, Metropolitan Hat. Have made it before, and it’s a treat, simple but so classy. Have been dreaming about this make for a looong time.
Happy sewing, Dear Readers!
