October in Review...

Sewing:

Vogue 8430 and McCall's 2340
It has not been a productive sewing month. If I'm not mistaken, I do believe this has been my least productive sewing month, ever. With exception of the time I was recovering from knee surgery. Life has been busy lately and that's my excuse. And I will admit that I'm not all that inspired by McCall's 2340 costume pattern. But I do have to get it done in the next couple of weeks. 


RTW Fast:

I fell off the RTW Fast bandwagon once again when it picked up a couple of sweaters.

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...
