May in Review...

Sewing:


As you can see, there hasn't been a lot of action over at the sewing table.  

RTW Fast:  

[Holding head in shame] I'm a horrible faster this year.  I again, fell off the wagon when I picked up a cotton tee-shirt that is fitted at the bust and flares towards the hemline. I defiantly need to copy this one.

  1. I wish I had your vigilance and control! I just keep buying patterns and fabric like it will be currency come the revolution!?

    1. Vigilance and control? Lol, what vigilance and control? [holding head in shame] I've done some serious stash-and-pattern-adding this year. I'm going to try to sew like a fiend for Pattern Review's stash busting contest and maybe put a dent in my stash. We'll see how well that turns out, lol. I'm scared to count the actual number of patterns and metres/yards of fabric that I have in my stash.

The Eva Dress by Tessuti

This is my first project using Tessuti patterns and I'm even more impressed with how it turned out than I was when the patterns arrived...
