1st reason: They're basic, comfy, so I ought to learn.
2nd reason: I can't believe I'm not getting better. (Which I'm not. This may have to do with my stubborn low-tech everything-should-be-sewable-with-a-regular-machine-and-zigzag-foot approach.)

- a jacket with my most recent fabric acquisition
- lots of children's pants for fall
