Do any of you have an event in the future and then decide you must, absolutely must have a new outfit(s)? Then you try to break all sewing/knitting speed records to get the objects of your desire completed??
Well, I am doing that a bit now. I am off away for a few days on Friday and have decided that as the climate in my chosen destination (NYC) is completely different from here in Brisbane, that of course I have nothing to wear! Now, I am pretty sure that I wore clothes last summer, I don’t remember the stares from walking about naked, so why do I need more clothes? (let’s call that a rhetorical question)
Short answer – I don’t need new clothes, however I would like them!
Here are the items I cut out last night and hope to finish before my early morning departure on Friday:
V-neck loose fitting top – BurdaStyle 101A 05/2012
Oversize top – BurdaStyle 07/2011
These are all pretty simple patterns, but I still don’t want to rush the finish. I have started with the Hazel dress. What do you think my chances are of finishing these before I leave? I also work full time, so my time is limited. Still, it is good to have goals right??
Do any of you also do this mad rush before travelling or events?
