Thank you so much for the nice comments on my whimsy shirt. I love it and plan to sew it again. Maybe not with the contrasting fabrics, however, it would be too distinct and then people would know that I sew the same patterns over and over again.
It's been about 99 degrees outside and 90 inside my house for the last couple of weeks and I haven't felt like sewing. However, I didn't have much time to sew until now. So I went out and bought myself this tiny little air conditioner for my sewing room. I installed it in about 15 minutes and I've been feel cool every since.
Before I bought the air conditioner, however, I needed something cool to sew in. I had this 100% cotton single knit in my stash for a couple of years. It came from Fashionfabricsclub.com and for some reason I bought 5 yards of it at 60" wide. I don't even look good in this color. Sorry about the picture. I took about 15 using the timer and this was the best one. I can't seem to get timer shots in focus.
I used KS 3160 to make this summer dress and used a picot fold-over elastic around the armhole and neck edge. I didn't remove the seam allowance before putting on the FOE so the shoulders are wider and the neckline is higher than it probably should be. I made it as a dress, but Husband and Son say it's a nightie. What do you think? Should I wear it outside the house? Like to the grocery store?
My sewing room is clean. The air conditioner is keeping it about 78 degrees and I have the next couple of weeks with very few commitments and lots of time to sew. So, what should I make? After this post I'm going to work on the Vogue 8379 alterations, but I'm sure I can get it made by tomorrow. After that, I don't know what to sew. Any ideas or suggestions?
