I'd really like to be able to 'accio' my spool of black thread and then I could be done with this costume already. But there was a tragic accident this summer. I organized all my sewing supplies in a little box placed high on a closet shelf. Upon retrieving this box, my hand slipped and buttons, thread, needles, and presser feet scattered into all the little corners. Now, my closet is not dirty or unorganized but it is fairly full of stuff. Living in a smallish house, there aren't a whole lot of other options. I hate to go and buy thread I already own, but I'm seriously not up for a hunt.
I'm using (modified) McCall's M6421 (which was on sale for 99 cents this weekend and maybe still) for the cloak and it's going fairly well, but I do hope a nice neat top stitch will bring it all together. I love top stitching. The patch was found on Ebay.
