Sewing…   Leave a comment


I tried my first full bust adjustment and it worked. The top itself did not, but it was intended as an experiment.

I am working on an Amy butler tunic pattern…Anna maybe in a yellow dot. I should finish it tonight. More sewing projects to come.

I actually sewed something…   Leave a comment

After spotting this skirt on The New Vintage Wardrobe, I decided it might make a good basic for me as well. I picked up Kwik Sew 3494 at Hancock Fabrics and bought the brown rayon suiting there as well. The pattern is wonderful. The fabric was not wonderful at all, and I’d prefer something with a bit of stretch. I pegged the skirt slightly, but will peg it somewhat more on the next round with this pattern. I did have to allow slightly more width at the hip, so will remember to sew the vertical seams with a 3/8 inch seam to allow for that when I repeat this pattern.
