Be sewing. I’ve got time, but I’m tired. I don’t know what I want to work on. I’ve tabled the Vogue skirt for right now. I’m thinking I’ll sew up something easy for my trip to Seaside, Oregon next weekend. It’s been warm – unseasonably warm – here today, and I’m catching up on rest and relaxation.
Sometimes I wonder how “fashionable” the items I make are, particularly with the sleeve options I’ve chosen. You know how some of the big 4 patterns can be a bit outdated but called new, right? Well, I saw these two tops on the Nordstrom website and it made me feel much better.
This one has sleeves like the top I just made in pink, only it’s a wrap. (I have a pattern just like this, I’m sure.) This is cute, and might just be the next top I make.
This top (below) is almost identical to the same pink top, only the sleeves are different, and it costs $56. My top cost $5.
And shirt/wrap dresses are all over the Nordstrom site as well, just like this pattern:
So, that’s what I’m doing. Browsing websites while my daughter barbeques dinner. Yup, I should be sewing. And I will. Soon.
