I've reached a decision, finally! I'm participating in Sunni's Shirtdress Sew Along using the bodice of Simplicity 1880 and the skirt from McCall's 6554.
The plan is to catch up with everyone soon. I'm making the dress in 100% cotton that I found in the quilting section of my local Fabricland store.
I cut the collar on the shirtdress with a Peter Pan collar and used Sunni's suggestion to create a neat curved edge. I'm going to keep the pockets on the skirt portion of the dress. That's the plan.
Vogue 1233 is still on my want to make list.
I cut out the pattern pieces before I thought of marrying the Fashion Star and Project Runway patterns.
I pulled out a blue cotton sateen and blue lining. I just have to give a pressing and then it will be my next project.
There hasn't been much sewing this weekend. And today my sinuses have been acting up, allergies to cats. And I spent the day yesterday with my nephew who lives in a house with six cats. Why can't they be puppy people?
Once this sinus headache clears up I'll be back at the sewing table. This week I'm going to be laid off from my job for the summer. Yup, I'm going to need some relaxing time at the sewing machine. Most people think that it is fun to have summers off but I would rather be working. At least I'll have some sewing projects to work on while I break from resume writing.
Until then, I thought I would share a picture of the wild roses from the backyard at my folk's place. I thought they were pretty.
What's on your sewing table?
That's all in sewing news today. Happy Sewing!
