|Vogue 8732--Remember This?|
I've been working on a few unplanned projects this month and have finished the most urgent. So when I finished putting the binding on a project that I will reveal this weekend, I grabbed my box with the jacket, pattern instructions and supplies.
Now, I don't know about you, but when I try to pick up a UFO, I have a really hard time
figuring out where I left off. It isn't as if we put them away think that we are putting it away for an extended period.
So, the first thing I did was to read and reread the instructions and look at what has and hasn't been done. Then, I ironed the wrinkly mess and put it on Dorothy the dress form.
I am much closer to finishing than I remember. It's isn't that close, but I am closer than I remember.

wrinkly spot. I'm hoping there
is some basting causing problems
It sounds like a lot, but, if you remember this jacket is a pretty big undertaking. I don't think I've found any that have been completed using the instructions. Most have changed to other methods at some point. I switched to machine buttonholes and I hope I can finish with that as the only variant.
I do have a strange wrinkle at the front where the collar meets the front edge where it will roll. I almost think I can live with it if it means that I finish this.
Yes. I am approaching the "good enough" stage of sewing on this. If anyone knows what is going on, please share. I don't want to rip this apart to find that I only need to ....
I'm hoping that I can finish this jacket so that I can wear it on Saturday.
