Even though we had beautiful weather this weekend, I hardly left the house. I sewed all day yesterday and most of today and may still sew some more.
I started my "Home Sewing Is Easy" shirt. I considered a lot of shirt style options -- camp collar, pull-over tunic, short sleeve, long sleeve, etc. In the end I decided on a standard long sleeve shirt. I'm glad I have a full three yards because one of the sleeves I cut ended up upside down.
Maybe home sewing isn't so easy after all.
Aside from some pattern-matching challenges, this cotton quilting fabric has given me no trouble. The shirt is coming together nicely and I hope to have it finished tomorrow.
On Friday, I bought fabric for my March Mood project. The top two fabrics are cotton prints with an organza-like stiffness (organdy perhaps?). They called it voile but it's crisper than what I thought voile usually feels like. The pink, white, and black fabric is a softer silk-cotton blend.
I also bought pleated polyester and a black cotton knit. Now who's that designer who uses pleated polyester....?
This will be the focus of the coming week. I'm excited.
In other news--wait, there is no other news.
Have a great day, everybody!
Any other classic salsa fans out there?
