Reflections: MPB Day 2012

Dear Friends,

Its about the time I update you on my MPB Day 2012 experience. Well, in a single word it was "AMAZING"..... Peter was an exceptional host and real pleasure to meet. I have visited FIT/Fashion District and had most amazing time meeting and mingling with other passionate sewers and blogger.

  I am so pleased for the fact I have decided to attend the event.  Apart from the  shooting that took the place just around the corner(as in real CSI NY Scene)  where we were at some stage during our Tour, the overall experience was AMAZING.  Did I say AMAZING too many times? Oh well, it was just that...Amazing!!!

Fabulous photo of Peter in The Fashion District...I really wanted to be up there but due to the gravity couldn't get up....hehe

Back Again and Ready to Sew!!!!!

Dear Readers,

I am back in Australia from my US/Canada trip and ready to continue with my sewing adventures. The trip was amazing and some of the highlights were meeting Peter Lappin and other great Sewers/Blogger as part of the Male Pattern Baldness Day 2012 and in private (more on this in next post).

Today I just wanted to give you and update regarding my Tailored Jacket.

Yes, I am alive and still working on the Jacket !!!!!

Dear Readers,

This has been a rather busy and I can confidently say a very productive week. Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for not posting anything sooner but as you can appreciate my tailored jacket journey is rather a slow one and I don't feel I should bore you with posts that only  have minor progress.

I am pleased to advise that I have conquered the lining and construction of the lining. Can I say, this was the hardest part of the jacket construction for me. Seriously, why does it have to be slippery....

Picture 1. I know it doesn't look like jacket  in this photo. I was totally lost at this stage hence decided to take the picture...
