Wow. Four months. I’m awesome at blogging, eh? 🙂
In those four months, I’ve left a job that was killing my soul (slight exaggeration), started a new job that offers lots of free time (hand sewing time) and my husband and I bought our first house. A beautiful dining room table set came from an estate sale via the hawk-like, bargain hunting eye of my mother-in-law. Said table has been already set up as my cutting/assembling table!
Now that I have a dedicated space, I want to sew ALL THE THINGS!!!!!!! 🙂 I have three weddings coming up (two in August, one in October), so I’ll be making at least two more dresses before summer is over. My plan is to use the By Hand London Anna bodice with a circle skirt for the first version. Stay tuned!
With the current temperatures in the high 90s Fahrenheit, I’ve been really wanting some more sleeveless tops. The best part is… I’ve already got several patterns to chose from!
I’ll probably start with the Portrait Blouse in purple linen, which I bought specifically for this pattern over a year and a half ago. It will be the first time I install a facing. 🙂
After that, I’ll probably make Simplicity 1460 in a crisp white cotton shirting that I bought for a Grainline Archer that I never made. I’m still intimidated by that pattern! I figured this little peplum blouse, with its three buttons, will be a good foray into sewing buttonholes. Collars and sleeve plackets can wait. 😉
So, those are my sewing plans for the next couple of months! What are you up to?
