Dress Like Your Grandma Making My Muslin

I started the muslin.  I now see why the fabric was only $4 a yard.  It will hold up for awhile.  I think.  Here's the neckline without the facings.

 

Here it is done and with the embroidery I hope to do on it.  The facings were easier than I thought, so I feel good about that.

 

I also embroidered on one of the pockets this morning.  It looks rough, but I think I'll get the hang of it. 

 

 

Dress Like Your Grandma

Before I get started, Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs came out today.  I am going to try to NOT read it in a day or two.  Trying to distract myself...

 

I have decided to take part in the Dress Like Your Grandma sewing challenge.  Here is a photo of my great grandma.

New Dresses

I have failed already in my attempts at my sewing goals this year so far.  I have made some stuff, but... So here is my version of the Hawthorn Dress by Colette Patterns.

 

I am starting to make some items to donate, AND getting ready to join the Dress Like Your Grandma Sewing Challenge!  Yay!

New Year. New Goals

 

It seems like a failure.  I spent the first few months of 2016 pretty focused on my game.  Still, I never got a BINGO.  I also did not stop buying fabric.  The whole point of the BINGO game was to use my stash and not buy more stuff.

Meh

Sorry it's been so long since I have updated.  I am currently working on a project but am very far behind in everything including the Bag of The Month Club.  I am, however, on book 6 of the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter.

Sewing for School

 

Skirting the Issue 2016

I haven't done any writing this summer, so this space has been bare.  Sorry.  I did get some skirts done for Skirting The Issue, and we dropped them off yesterday for the Florence Crittenton School Supply Drive.

 

I made simple skirts again this year, and I even sewed sizing tags in!

 

June Bag of The Month

Back in the rut of not writing.  The Bag of The Month Club ended and started up again!  I am excited for July's release.  Here's my June bag by Chris W. Designs.  It was tough, but I made it through.  

 

The fabric is Millie's Closet by Riley Blake.

Simplicity S0902 and BOTM!

 

Normally, I don't make the big name brand patterns.  They make me nuts as the directions never seem to make sense to me.  I keep trying though.  This one caught my eye.  It is so pretty and so me.

 

The Honey Blouse

 

A few months ago I went to a Treelotta Pop-Up and bought this pretty rayon fabric.  I decided, as I purchased it, that it would be a blouse.  I really don't make blouses.  At that point, the hunt was on to find a pattern...
