What is it that i'm doing...?

Oh, yeah, procrastinating. That's it!

Years and years ago, my mother gave me a bathrobe for Christmas.  Well, the robe is starting to rapidly deteriorate.  There is almost nothing left holding the left shoulder seams together on the current robe i'm using.  I NEED a new one.  About 4 months ago I bought the Jalie robe pattern.  I made DD her robe and thought that I would knock one out for me.  Well, apparently it didn't happen that way because I still need a robe.   

I now realize that I hate utilility sewing.  I could probably sew this up, from trace, serge to finsh in about 2 to 3 hours.  Clearly i'm waiting on an invitation! lol  I WILL get to this tonight!

...Or tomorrow.

Also, don't forget about the PatternReview two week challenge.  I'm the manager for this one, and I would love to have you.  This time around the challenge is aprons.  Join us and have fun!

I'm with you on the utility sewing. I bought fabric to make curtains for my husband's "man room" for New Year's day and it's still laying under my sewing table in the bag! I am a terrible I'm not. I'm a well clothed, stylish Diva and I dare anybody to say otherwise! You should probably get to work on that robe in case I stop by for a surprise visit with camera in hand...can you say blackmail! LOL
