JCC deadline

Elizabeth (the organiser of the JCC) has told us that we can sew until the end of June 30. By July 7th (one week later) she needs to receive photos. She will then leave two weeks for voting. So that's very exciting, and means I should be able to finish the sewing on Tuesday evening.

Just realised I have only cut out one cuff for the shirt. Hmm which sleeve shall it go on?
(Don't worry I have extra fabric, just lacking common sense!)

The shirt now has a collar stand plus collar, and looks quite good. Each sleeve is constructed (sans cuff) and has a continuous lap placket thingy which came out quite well and some basted pleats.

Tomorrow I will cut some more cuff pieces, construct and attach the cuffs, attach the sleeves, make the buttonholes and sew on the buttons.
P.S. sandwiches for tea and sewing until midnight I think!

I know you can do it. Go Ruthie, go Ruthie. I need the shaking pom pom icon from Stitchers Guild here.
PS. put the cuff on the right sleeve...I am sure that will work best. :)

It sounds like you're going to pull an "all nighter". I haven't done that in years! Put on some loud music, make a pot of coffe and sew!
