I've started (and mostly finished) work on my 'secret project'. I was able to modify a pattern I already had, so I didn't have to draft my own. I've changed the pattern so instead of an elastic waistband, it'll have a button fly (only because I don't have a zipper).
Also, hand sewing sucks. I mean, I'm not bad at it (my stitches actually hold when I try it on), but it takes so damn long! I wish i could use my mom's sewing machine . . . .
Oh well. But now I need to find either some grey bias tape, or some random grey fabric that I can cut into strips and use like bias tape.
