(Another) Snow Day!

The snow moved into the Northeast a little sooner than I expected, so I took today off instead of tomorrow.  The snow turned to rain pretty quickly, but I did not even consider going to work!  There was relaxing and sewing to be done :) 
I whipped up another version of Vogue 8597 today :)  It took me about 2 hours to cut out and put this together, although I have not hemmed it and I want to redo the facing on the cowl.  But otherwise, I am super happy with it!  It's actually a dark navy color, the camera lightened it up quite a bit.  The whole thing was done up on my trusty serger, which really made it quick to sew.  I cannot recommend this pattern enough!
Next up is this purse pattern (I'm going to do the version on the top left).  I am desperate for a new bag.  When I was cleaning my sewing closet I realized I have a ton of this Amy Butler fabric, so I decided to use it right away.  I could never figure out what to use as a lining with it as the colors are quite different, so I'm just going to line the bag in the same fabric!  I've never done that before, but I think it will be an interesting look.  I'm hoping to cut this out and sew it up over the weekend!
