Where on earth did the month of September go? I am astonished it has f-l-o-w-n by so very quickly!
Here is my recap of what has been happening with sewing!
Participating in the Fabric Mart Fabricista challenge has certainly slowed my output, but I have to say that I have worn and worn and worn my creations! I have spent a great deal of time not only fitting but also on the craftmanship and thinking about all the details. Not that I didn't before mind you, but I have certainly focused more on the how and why of garments. How can I do this better? What other alterations can I make to have this fit better? I am almost driving myself crazy at times!
Here is my output for the month:
A repeated pattern: McCall's 6886. This is my second dress from this pattern. My first, a purple reminded my husband of his dear aunt Della who was about 85 years old when she took care of him as a young tike. Every girls wants to be compared to their significant other's great aunt. :)
This is such a versatile pattern. I know I'll make more!
Next was my version of the Scout Woven Tee for the Fabric Mart Fabricista Challenge. I had so my FUN creating this top from thrift store finds!
It took two muslins to get the fit right and I enjoyed playing with the fabrics and trims for this top. I've worn this a LOT already!
Next up, a fast project or the Lola Dress from Victory Patterns. I love this dress too! So comfortable! It feels like pajamas! Who doesn't want to feel cozy at work all day?
For the 2nd FM challenge, I made a pair of jeans. I love jeans and making them! I worked very hard on fitting these and the details/craftsmanship. I have worn these to death as well and get so many compliments on them!
Next, I created a copy of a beloved jean jacket from an existing Butterick pattern. I had a BLAST doing this and LOVE my jacket!
I needed more trousers, so I made a pair!
And then the last item: My little Red Dress.
National sewing month was very productive for me! I hope you were able to create some beautiful things you'll wear over and over again!
Till next time--Sue
