Chicago Dreaming

LeBron the cat likes guarding my future clothes.

Why is it that when I plan a vacation I automatically start coming up with patterns I "need" to make before I leave? For example, I'm going to Chicago this summer and have already figured out what I would like to wear on my trip, but have not yet figured out everything I want to do or where my husband and I will be staying... At least I have the flights booked? Haha.

That said, my summer sewing is going to be geared towards Chicago sewing. Which means I need to make clothing for hot weather. This will be great for my normal "home" wardrobe too, as I always seem to forget how hot it can get here in Pismo Beach until I'm sweating profusely at work in a building with no AC, let alone insulation in the walls, and helping customers as sweat drips off the tip of my nose. Side note: it will cost $7,000.00 (approximately $$$$$$.00) to have air conditioning installed in our home (no relief when I get home), so I guess I need to stock up on some fans and get ready for more Bikram sewing days in the future. It is what it is 😐

All fabric purchased from Michael Levine.

So. Dream wardrobe description below:
1. Closetcase Patterns Sallie jumpsuit in green jersey. Problem is that this jersey might be too see through, so I'm not sure if this one is going to happen.
2. Seamwork Aberdeen in a pink knit. Or a knit Grainline Scout?
3. A wine colored Named Inari dress.
4. See number two. P.S. I love stripes.
5. A pink linen Grainline Alder.

Fabric gifted to me from Birch Fabrics.

1. The Grainline Penny Raglan in the green Charley Harper knit.
2. View A of the Closetcase Charlie Caftan in the blue chambray.
3. A quail Closetcase Kalle tunic because why wouldn't I make a quail shirt? I think they are my favorite kind of bird.

I'm clearly (Chicago) dreaming if I think that I am going to get all this done in time, but I will try my best to put a dent in the list. I definitely need to get at least one dress done because my birthday is on July 18th and I like treating myself to a birthday dress when I can 🎂👗🎂👗🎂👗🎂👗🎂

So, what's the scoop on Chicago? And where can I get the best pizza of my life?

  1. Some desktop machine systems aren't place to} perceive round arcs both, so every little thing have to be converted into polylines. Refers to the use of of} various software program packages to create toolpaths and NC code to run a CNC controlled machine, based mostly on 3D laptop mannequin knowledge. When the 2 are used together, that is typically known as CAD/CAM. The compensation varieties proven upto this level have been for machining and turning centers, however all forms of CNC gear also have Goggle some form of compensation to allow for unpredictable conditions.
