|Vogue 8890--I want to make these|
dress pants for Mr. Toad.
I will continue to organize the patterns and fabric.
I will complete my Little White Dress. I am currently basting the dress for fitting. If the fitting is correct, I will machine stitch, make the lining, insert the zipper and sew the hem. I've been slowed down by family activities and a little rheumatoid flare. This must be done by February 15th.
The Monthly Stitch is focusing on pants. This will give Mr. Toad a pair of black dress pants made from some Italian wool I bought on sale from Michael's Fabrics a few years ago. Yes. Years. I am going to use the Vogue 8890. I also owe him a jacket. I think that may be March or April. Hopefully, of this year.

I am also supposed to make a dress shirt for Middle Son. He has a swing dance competition, but at this point, his dance partner has not given him a color. The dance is on the 14th. Yep. That's Valentine's Day.
The last sewing commitment is for a friend's daughter. Her birthday is mid-February, so I should finish it by the 15th. I can't discuss it here, because she might discover her gift. I'll post it after she receives it.

So, I count 5 new projects and one to finish. That is a total of six finished projects for February. I was considering adding a pair of pants for myself and another gift project, but I think the couture items might slow me down.
Maybe I should add a time machine somewhere between the sewing machine and the serger?
