I decided to make a few transitional garments (with a few lingering winter ones as well) just because the below zero wind chills and cold temps are getting really old.
So enough complaining....what did I accomplish in February? First of all, I put myself on a fabric diet. I was hoping I had enough will power to sew 15 pieces from my stash before I even considered purchasing anything else....did I do it? Almost, does that count? I think I sewed up 7 pieces before I purchased more and four others before that shipment arrived...not sure if that counts, but I tried....
So here is my recap of the month: I felt like my sewing mojo went on vacation but I found it again when I created a Kwik Sew fleece jacket, wow, do I love this pattern! I hope to see many more of these in my future!
I made three StyleArc patterns but actually it was four as one was a repeat. Now that I've discovered StyleArc is on Etsy with instant download possibility, I am so hooked! I have several in my pile ready to go and I can't wait!
I had one wadder and that was a Burda from the winter style magazine. I really wanted this pattern to work as I think it is super cute but I am blaming my fabric choice as the main culprit. I do hope to find a perfect fabric to try again. No photo...argh!
I had to make another Coco from Tilly and the Buttons cuz it so cute and easy to wear! When I wear knit tops/dresses such as this one, I feel like I am wearing pajamas all day but still feel cute and stylish. How awesome is that! I'll be making more!
I think my favorite garment this month was the Donna Koran jacket. My non-sewing friends think I am crazy when I talk about how much fun I had creating a garment but this one really was FUN! I think you seamstresses out there know what I mean!
I hope to make more spring garments the month of March. What are you sewing? How do you manage your stash? I'd love to know!
