Prep Work

I'm preparing for another sewing weekend.  I am using patterns from Simple Modern Sewing and The Stylish Dress Book.  I realized I am altering all of the patterns I chose at least a little.  I can't leave well enough alone, lets hope that works out for me. 


I have a pair of linen pants for me and I think I will gather them at the ankle harem style.


I have a dress I am losing the collar and sleeves on.  Using a fabric I've had around a while and been really hoping to use.  I finally got brave enough to cut it.


I have a shirt that I can't decide whether to make into a dress last up for cutting.  All the others are cut and bagged.  I still need to buy a few items like thread and elastic.  All these items are pretty simple.  I am using binding instead of facing in most cases and only the dress has some things to it that are new ideas. 


I have great hope (as you can see.)  I also am bringing the finished quilt top from Anjali's quilt and I'm hoping to get that together too.  See? Ambitious!


May the baby sleep and smile on us all!

Right here is the right blog for anybody who wishes to find
out about this topic. You understand a whole lot
its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally
would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject which has been discussed for ages.
