Thanks everyone for you wonderful comments. Gabriella and Carol, it's good to see you. When are we going to see what you've been doing lately? Bunny, I think it was your site that I got the double sleeve technique from. Your blog is one I reference all the time for different techniques. Can I commission you for a bag? The Noriko is my fav.I'm following Eugenia's lead. This pattern is what summer sewing is all about; fast, easy and flattering. I don't see anything wrong with sewing it up repeatedly. Here's the first one. I made two more this weekend. Maybe I'll do another in a solid. Maybe I'll actually use the fabric I earmarked for this pattern when I first purchased it. But then maybe not. I bore easily, but I need new clothes. How can one be a seamstress and have nothing to wear?
