They're baack

Tribbles, that is.

And they've adapted. No wonder the Klingons destroyed their homeworld.

The source is this surprisingly luxurious faux fur I found at a JoAnns that was going out of business.

The end of the invasion will be this vest from Butterick 3311:
It's going well so far- but my entire sewing room will need some serious hair removal after all this.

I love those little pockets in the front dart seam.

And the tie is coming along. I've still got to work out that liner issue- it still needs some tweaking and the long stitching up the back.

Darn blogger pics. It's really not that round.

This is a great length of silky feeling wool I picked up at Jomar with the girls not too long ago...

I'm sorry I can't be more specific than I know it's wool. I am soooooooo fabric dumb.

I'm using it for piece number one of the plan- Vogue 2956, the jacket.

but I'm trying to finish those two vests (oh yeah, there's another one) before I pick it up again. New Year's eve is suddenly looking very close...

Love the back detail on that jacket! It's going to look great in that wool.

Dying to see how your fur vest comes out. I've always wanted to make one.

Love the tribbles reference! The vest will be fantastic...and I love the fabric from JoMars!

I'd like to make myself a coat (longer length) in a style like this.

You can make the tie! I have great, great faith. Let me know how the sewing up the back goes. I'm going to have a lot of that to do over the weekend.
