June in Review

Sewing:

Top L to R:  Black crepe dress, Simplicity 2372; animal print linen shirt, Butterick 6026; cotton knit
t-shirt, Vogue 9057; three pairs of cotton panties, Simplicity 8229.
The sewing mojo hasn't yet returned to what it used to be but I have been doing some sewing. Simplicity 8229 and Vogue 9057 have become TNT patterns and there is another version of Butterick 6026 cut out and ready to sew.  

RTW & Fabric Fast:

The RTW fast, I can report, has become second nature. I'm not even tempted by clothing found in the stores. I'm at the point that I couldn't imagine shopping for clothes. The fabric fast is another story. For the first half of the year, it's been an epic fail. Maybe I'll be more successful in the second half of the year? We'll see...

  1. The fabric fast will likely be a lot easier now that Mitchell's has closed. A very mixed blessing. :(

Some Mistakes Are Worth Repeating...
