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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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...
