Are the seasons changing yet for you? The wind still bites like winter here even if the sun is shining a bit brighter. I've got some ambitious plans for a piece of dark brown chocolatey velvet I snagged at a thrift store awhile back.
I love jackets and this amazing vintage one is begging me to make it up in time for Easter to go over my first 50's dress attempt. I'll have to resize this pattern and I may add a band around the bottom so it sits at my natural waistline. It's my first time sewing with real velvet and I may add a lining too. I feel like that's a lot of firsts in one project so I'm not going to plan too many more March Stashbusting Goals.
I have to start and finish my Covert Robin gift, finish up some trip toys for the visit to Salt Lake City, Utah the end of this month, and make up a custom dress order so I'd say March is pretty full already. But.....
Look what I got in the mail today!!!
Disparate Disciplines and I WON!!! Whoo Hoo!! My first win! I was even more excited when I saw these pictures!

So how about you? What are your seasonal plans? Has the weather started to warm or cool in your area of the globe? Are you like me, longing for spring?
It might be rubbing it in, but it's been gorgeously warm here for the last two weeks, so I'm overdue for some spring clothing! How funny that you're working on a velvet jacket -- I just decided to work on a velvet coat!
I don't mind when its cold it's just the wind that bothers me. It is so bitter right now even when the sun makes it look like it is nice out.
Fun that we will be working on velvet jackets together!! I'm actually really excited to get started on mine now!
