Summer of No Pants 2014 - Post #3

Yesterday I dug out some scraps of fabric and made a skirt.  I didn't have too high of hopes.  I really just wanted to keep moving on my Summer of No Pants list.  I found some fabric that was gifted to me, and I pulled out my hemp/cotton/recycled poly muslin that I've been keeping around, and I drew out a pattern.  I knew that the muslin was VERY see through, so in my head I envisioned a skirt with the gifted fabric sort of laying on top of the muslin to cover my rear end.

I finally finished my first dress for Summer of No Pants 2014!  This is the Naomi from Kay Whitt.  You can find the pattern here.  I love Kay Whitt's patterns and have made quite a few over the last two years or so.  I found this one challenging.  I struggled with the bias trim under the sleeves and with the waistband. I am usually mini skirt or ankle skirt kinda woman, but I made this one fall just below the knee.

 

Summer Quilt #2 Complete!

Summer of No Pants 2014 - Post #1

My friends gift fabric to me now and again.  It's wonderful.  I have gotten sheets, tables linens, curtains, and new fabric.  A friend of mine gave me some knit fabric, already cut out, that she bought a long time ago.  She never got around to making the pattern, so she decided to give it to me.  I am not one to wear knit on the bottom half of my body, but I really wanted to make a skirt out of what she gave me.  Here is my new old skirt.

The "Broken Pieces" Quilt is Complete

               

                At the beginning of this project, I don’t think I actually believed that I would ever finish.  I think that was fairly evident when I realized I was done with the quilt top, but I hadn’t purchased any backing fabric.

Almost ready to quilt

Last week while waiting for my backing fabric to arrive, I pulled out the last shirts I bought at the thrift store.  At least a month had passed since I bought them, and I only remembered what one of them looked like.
