And . . . what it is . . . is exactly clear!
That's some really lovely not-quite-olive-green-but-close-enough mid-weight canvas fabric (ordered from my favorite online fabric store) (they will even match your thread for you, by the way) being cut into my can't-wait-to-have-'em overalls!
And I happened to have some really great lining fabric on hand already.
No one will SEE the lining fabric. But it will give me that delightful "surprise inside" feeling every time I step into my overalls.
I also spent quite a bit of time transferring all the markings to my cut-out pattern pieces.
I don't always take the time to transfer all the markings so carefully. While some projects allow for my usual lazy approach to sewing . . . this isn't one of them! These overalls won't be particularly hard to sew (Merchant & Mills considers this an "intermediate" level pattern), but they will require precision. Accurate and complete markings will be the key here, so this was a good investment of my time.
Once I fill a few bobbins (this will be a thread-heavy project with all that top-stitching), I'll be ready to sew. If I stay focused, maybe I'll have them finished before the end of the month.
Of course, they'll be competing with my taxes. (Sigh.)
Maybe I should have a race and see which Big Thing gets finished first . . . my overalls or my taxes????
And in other news . . .
Vaccine #1 is in the books!
(I got the Moderna vaccine . . . just down the road from the Pfizer manufacturing plant. The irony.)
