I've joined a Pattern Review contest to make a mini wardrobe with 4 sewn items and one item from my closet. I also want to do the Spring 6-piece collection or 6PAC at Stitcher's Guild. I'm in need of new clothes for attending the Pattern Review meeting in Chicago and thought this would be the perfect time to really get my sewing grove back.
I have been doing some sewing, just not blogging. Here are a few things I've made in the last few months since my mother-in-law passed away. Amazing how something like that can really knock you off your feet.
This one is S2283 and I really like how it looks on me. You can't see all the great detail with the wild print I used, but you can read more about it in my review.
This top is my muslin of Burda 7-2007-124. It's a nice twist top that has a sort of shawl collar which helps it to be more modest than most Burda Magazine patterns. I think the sleeves are hitting me at an awkward location and will make them either shorter or longer next time I make this top. And there will be a next time!
This is a really cute tunic and it looks good on me, so I'm not sure why I haven't finished hemming it yet. I'll have to get that done while I'm on spring break this week as well. The pattern is B4856.
Sorry about the bad picture, I was trying to mess with the lighting so you could see the details of this really cute top. It's KS 3621. I am behind on writing my reviews for most of these tops but will get that done during my spring break as well.
I'm going to try not to neglect my blog anymore this year. Hopefully all will stay safe and healthy around here and I can go back to doing the things I love the most. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of my latest sewing saga. I miss you guys!
