Well, it's been a long time since I've posted to this.
I'm starting a new shirt in a heavy taupe colored linen. Apparently this, as well as orange, is a color I like. I also found some wool, some wierd tapestry material, and some garment weight wool, all in the same color.
Once again, I've forgotten to cut the interfacing for the collar at the same time as the pattern pieces, no big hardship, but must fiddle with it a bit more than I'd normally wish.
I'm planning out some embroidery of a vine around the collar and cuff, but it might get abbreviated to a single leaf shape. Will think on it tomorrow.
