Disaster Adverted

Can you see this very faint writing on this fabric? I didn't and cut it out on the right side of the fabric which would have been really bad if I didn't notice it before I starting sewing. Luckily I did and just made sure to reverse the pattern pieces but of course that means all the markings are on the right side of the fabric but they should easily wash out.

So far so good, I added buttons/buttonholdes to the back pockets. These buttons must have come from an old leather coat because they say "Wilson's Leather" on them.

This is Simplicity 2852, which was so easy I think I could have done it blindfolded, not really but it was so easy, I think it took 1 1/2 hours at the most.

The maxi dress and jacket are cut out, I'm not going to say which pattern I choose, I'll let it be a surprise. I don't have much more to do on the capris, they should be finished before next weekend and then I can start on the maxi dress.
I hope everyone had a great weekend, as you can see from all my FO's I had a great sewing weekend.

What a good catch, now if it were me... sheesh it would've been upside down and me no

Thank you, it was such a pleasure helping her. I know you will get to NY for shopping soon. I'll be starting to work on my pattern catalog this week. I'll be contacting you about it.
