Tutorial Fixed!

Thanks to Rachelle for sending me the head's up that two photos were missing from my adjustable strap tutorial! I'm not sure how they disappeared, but they are back now. Also, thanks for checking it out. I hope you try this tutorial and be sure to send my a photo of your finished bag!

Butterick 5363

I've been working on an outfit the last few days...when I can sneak a few minutes that is. This outfit will be my first ensemble for myself. I'm using Butterick pattern 5363. I've completed the pants and am working on the tunic now. I'm hoping to complete the jacket and wear the whole outfit this weekend. I'm using black seersucker fabric for the pants and jacket and a grey and black seersucker for the tunic. So far, I've accomplished a few sewing firsts for me:
  1. successfully laying out and cutting out the pattern peices from 60" wide fabric
  2. successfully positioning and cutting (I think) the plaidish fabric pieces for the tunic
  3. a buttonhole!

For fear I might jinx myself, I don't want to say that I haven't had any mishaps...but, this project has proven, so far, mistake and injury free! Keep you posted!
