Start Afresh

Okay, I didn’t quite achieved the short term goal but I did get back to sewing. In the five months  which I started back sewing (August to December), I was able to use 17.25 yards of fabric, making outfits for my granddaughter and me. That’s a good thing. Unfortunately I didn’t take pictures of all of my projects but I will work on that this year.

LadyinRedI ended the year and started the year sewing. My last project was a wine suede skirt from Butterick 5466 which took all of 2 hours to make with the grandkids running around. 2015-01-05 21.25.532015-01-05 21.20.12 And on the first day of the year I made a top to match from Kwik Sew 4083.        2015-01-05 19.51.08 Both fabrics came from my stash which I purchased 19 years ago when I worked at Fabric Warehouse in Long Island, NY.(found the receipt). 2015-01-05 18.20.25 I am satisfied to an extent with the outfit. I just have to identify my style again.

On another note, this month is my birthday and I am aiming to have at least 4 new outfits made. One down, three to go…….

Sew until……

  1. As you know sewing is FUNdamental, LOL. So don’t stress yourself out. You will “git r done”; and if you don’t, humph, there’s always another day.

    Not sure if you’re into ’em or not but sew-a-longs and challenges are fun AND they can help keep you on point and motivated. One group I would like to pay it forward to you is https://www.facebook.com/groups/822186681165936/ (Sew Retro Rose). We just finished up a sweet 1950s Swirl dress and she is prepping to begin another in the next few days or so.

    Now, the red dress. Girrlllllll. That dress is kickin’!! I love it. I would NEVER have given that pattern a second look (due to my size); however, seeing you in it. You are smashing.
