new project - dressing gown

Dear Reader,

I came perilously close to buying five metres of royal blue silk today, at 40$ a metre. To make a dressing gown (e.g. a glorified house coat). The silk is just so beautiful! Thankfully I came to my senses before purchasing a 200$ house coat, and chose this instead:

It is (blurg) 100% polyester, but it has a nice drape and was only 6$/metre. I am positive that in this whole giant city of Toronto, I can find silk at a better price. So, this will be my practise piece until I do.

Oh, you probably want to see the pattern, huh?

I wanted to sew it all up today, but I got started late and only got part way through the yoke. Then the next thing I knew it was nine p.m., and I have a strict rule about not sewing after nine. It's around that time that I lose the ability to both see properly and think properly, so I know better than to sew.

First day of class tomorrow! But not until noon, so hopefully I'll have a bit of time to sew in the morning.
