Lots and lots of sewing to do...Sunday, May 20, 2012
I have laying on my kitchen island a heap of old sheets and this loverly pattern...
I plan on cutting out a muslin using the old sheets of course before I go to bed tonight. We'll see if that happens as I just found the 2012 Billboard Awards are on. I'm making the dress on the left. I fell in love with the cut out neckline.
This will be my fabric of choice once I'm ready and confident enough to cut into it. Butterflies are my fave and I will be using the solid blue to interline the bodice and line the skirt as the fabric is pretty sheer.
My next dress will be for a bachelorette party I'm going to in July. I wanted something vintage and I found this 1960's Simplicity 8229 pattern from ErikawithaK's Etsy shop. I'm making the drop waist jiffy dress in the middle with this rayon spandex print I found at Joann's. I think it would look good with a strappy flat, I hate the "gladiator" term but yes I guess that's what I'm talking bout.
Next up I won a course on Craftsy.com!!
The Sassy Librarian Blouse....
I'm going to make the sleeveless version with the cutesy contrasting tie at the neckline and arms. Luckily I happened to stumble upon this coordinating cotton fabric in the clearance section at Joann's. At $4.00 a yard I went ahead and bought two yards of each. I'm going to try and make a panel skirt using the leftovers.
