So, let's take stock of what could be some up-and-coming projects in the Land of
Project #1: McCall's 6070 in blue polka-dot micro jersey knit
I had planned on making a cute summery dress this season and thought this polka-dot would be super cute. It says it is an easy pattern so maybe I could sew this up in no time. I plan on making view A which is the shorter version of the dress worn by the model on the cover. Simple, cute, and summery.
Project #2: Butterick B5613 in 100% cotton pin dot black fabric
This skirt was inspired by a skirt I saw at The Limited but didn't want to spend the money on. This is the original inspiration.
I liked the cute pin dots with the black piping for a classy work look or just to wear out on the town. But I also like skirts that feel simple and easy like this skirt from Forever 21. I like the black elastic waist band and decided that I could make the pin dot skirt and attach a 2" wide black elastic band for a simple finish that was easy and wearable.
McCalls 5591 (again) in khaki cotton fabric with black accents
The Bird Skirt that I completed back in June. It should come together easily since I'm already familiar with the pattern.
Project #4: Butterick B5555 in shirting fabric with cadet blue dot clusters
Beyond these projects I have 2 finished projects that I need to make alterations/corrections on to perfect them, a few knitting projects that could use some finishing, and a blanket in the works. I didn't want to overwhelm you with all of my
The funniest part about all of this is that I haven't even been inspired to sew since my previous project (that needs alterations) sucked out all of my sewing mojo because I had to finish it for a friend's wedding. Let's just say that staying up until midnight the night before after sewing all day kind of sucked the fun out of it. But never fear, I did pick up my knitting to get some crafting juices flowing. Updates to come. Just for fun I will leave you with a teaser of the dress that killed my mojo. Once I finish the alterations (i.e. busted zipper and disattached bow) I will post a nice, long finished project post.
