So I finally had a chance to get some quick snaps of my latest FOs from yesterday. Two more to show, but that'll be another day. The top is the very popular knit piece from New Look. I chose a vibrant, wild fabric from Yardage Town. The pants are from Butterick. It's another knit pattern, which I opted for a comfy t-shirt material on sale for $2.98 in the left-over section at Yardage Town. These were really easy to sew and I have been working comfortably in them all day! I actually cut and sewed the pants while watching a movie. It took only 45 minutes from start to finish! These will both be work staples.
In a complete failure at fabric dieting, I have purchased two more pieces of fabric from Yardage Town to make a couple of dresses. When I returned from lunch, my Fabric.com order came in with the four pieces I purchased last week! Oh - the options I have! Here's to a continued movement towards successful sewing projects. Both of these were completely serged with the exception of the top's gathering at the bottom. I actually managed to use my new Bernina gathering foot attachment. Thanks Robin for the email support. It worked!
Here's a pic of my new dress form. While my roomie helped wrap my body in duct tape to make a customized version, I have failed to stuff and mount it. Easy solution? Buy one! Actually it's an early birthday gift....perrrrrfect.
A semi-Christmas gift for my Sister. A Sew Easy Butterick pattern I completed when I first started sewing, but failed to hem it. Finished and ready for the holidays. No peaking Pam. lol. FYI, my Sister is so tiny that I couldn't zip up the dress on the dress form, which is for medium sizes. Ha! After 3 kids, she's still an x-small. What a cruel world we live in. *wink*
