This is the last of the summer sewing I was chatting about. I've made several of these years ago. They were versions A and B. The pattern was cut to a size 18 at the time. I traced it over adding inches in the bust, waist, hips and the uppper arm width. Hmmm...diet time!
View B with the white one upper left; A is the lower middle one. I am doing A in the off-white, tannish, cotton. No pocket though.
It’s October 6, 2013 and I am still sewing the last of a summer shirt. I found some nice cotton in my stash. Could be cotton lawn, its nice light-weight, sheer-ish fabric. Even though summer is over I am going to wear it anyway. I will need to wear a cami under it! Since the last time I posted, I’ve only sewn about 6 skirts +/-; two-2-piece dresses and 4 tops/shirts. I did manage to make a few pieces of jewelry, but other than that I’ve been lazy. I get in a rut and seem to not be able to dig myself out of it. I am on a mission… 1. Do digital detox; I spend too much time on sewing sites and review sites and should be sewing; 2. I did go on a fabric/pattern diet and I am happy with that; 3. I will stop joining challenges that I can’t meet. Not enough hours in the day for me to participate. I feel like a failure when I can’t complete them. But they are fun; maybe I will just challenge myself; 4. I have dozens of sewing books, I plan to read one a month from cover to cover; 5. I also have a problem of choosing, sometimes, the wrong fabric for the pattern. I want to increase my fabric knowledge. I have a few books on fabric; 6. Lastly, maybe organize my fabric stash….lol. Like that will happen! Happy Sewing!!!
