February in Review...

Sewing:

Sewing has taken a hit this month as I was feeling under the weather with a stomach flu in the beginning of the month. And I'm ending the month by putting in longer hours at work and fighting a cold. It kind of puts a damper on any thoughts of sewing. Despite this, I was able to make hide many sewing bloopers within the few seams I sewed and came out with one completed project: a new shirt dress.

I'm currently working on a cape that is taking me much longer to complete than I anticipated it would take to make.


RTW Fast:

No ready-to-wear items made it into my wardrobe and I wasn't even been tempted. Woohoo!

Mind you feeling under the weather and all those pastel colours found in the retail landscape helped with the lack of temptation.

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...
