August in Review...

Sewing:

Top L to R:  Gray top--OOP McCall's 7946, Baby onesies--OOP McCall's 7367, Gray boiled wool top--Vogue 1515, Mint green and cream pullover dress--McCall's 7402, Refashioned leather jacket--Burda 7183. 

I didn't manage to finish the Issey Miyake dress that I started earlier this summer. I was hoping to finish it this month but it didn't happen. Instead I was drawn to easy projects mostly because my sewing mojo has taken a hit with the sprained ankle. It didn't stop me from sewing though. My favourite make would be the ruffled collar top, Vogue 1515.

RTW Fast:

I'll admit it, I was tempted to break my RTW Fast again this month. Sometimes this is hard.
