I have a dozen projects clambering in my brain right now. Sew me. Stitch me. I feel like I'll never have time for all the things I want to do, no matter how much time I'm given. Yeah, sometimes this leads to me being a little distractable. Next, I will sew this! No, wait, this first, and then that! Then, in between... But I simply must learn to make an X! Now! Remind me not to plan ahead. Or to enforce my planning ahead, either one. By the way, I'm getting the embroidery itch again. This is usually followed by the hand-stitching itch.

The muslin for Scott's shirt is ready for him to try it on tonight. We'll see how much work has to happen to get it fitting right then. I'm crossing my fingers. I still have to finish up the underskirt for the Victorian dress, but I'm ready to start on the overskirt as well. I'm looking into buying a quantity of solid black, dark green, or dark blue twill (and probably flannel too) from ebay for a cloak or two...maybe there's a place I can get large chunks of it for less than ~$2.70/yd including shipping...I'll look into that.

I've finally figured out what to do with 3 lengths of gorgeous batiked cottons that I seized at JoAnn a while ago. A formal dress pattern that I made up in brown velour 6 years ago taunts me. Mmm, long skirts. Now I'm itching to get started on that project/3 projects, but I must be strong! I will work on Scott's shirt, the Victorian dress, and then make a cloak. The rest of my planning ahead will probably be ditched for more shiny projects though. Like Ooo, batiked cottons. *drool*

That's what the formal dress pattern is going to be paired with. It's Simplicity 7510, but that pattern # has been used a number of times by them, so I couldn't find the one I have on a quick search. Slim but still slightly flowy, below ankle length, with a simple empire bodice that's either high in front and back with no sleeves or has a typical simple, spagetti strapped style.
