Let’s get sewing

April 18, 2007

There’s been lots going on here but no sewing. Life feels quite serene and undramatic, which is always a good thing. But I want to get back to sewing! So, what’s up next? Well, since I have the pattern already pinned to my dress form, I think I’ll work on this one.


I’ll try it out in a muslin fabric first to test the fit, and then I want to make it up in this new fabric I got from Oregon.


It will look awesome with the new black lined pants I bought for interviews. My daughter thinks the fabric is rather ugly, but I like it, so there. The picture above doesn’t do it justice, but I know it will work nicely.

And this weekend, I’m going to do more shoe shopping! I bought four pairs in Oregon, but two pairs are about 1/2 size too small so my daughter may be inheriting them. I plan to head to Norstrom to see if I can still get these shoes I saw a while back.

    I like that sort of kimono style of the shirt! It looks very comfy.

    I also bought the kimono pattern thanks to your post. I am hesitant about what fabric to use with it though. I was thinking of this:
    and I have a sample, it’s great. but I’m wondering if I need something a bit heavier. Maybe not, the silkiness of it will keep it from “sticking.”

    Have you started yours?
