This week has been an absolute blur - between a recovering baby boy, the holiday weekend, trips back and forth to the 2 hour away hospital for checkups, a dental appointment, and photography sessions; I feel like my brain is about 2 days behind my body.
I have made steps forward, and I have stalled out on some projects; but I will say the forward momentum wins ;o)
This week I:
~ Patterned a Suit jacket (yes I should have just bought Melly's amazing pattern, but my friend had a jacket that was the right size that I could pattern - and free just wins out right now!)
~ Attempted to dye fabric, yeah I don't know about this one ;o(
~ Made the pants for PR&P fashion icon week (ok the waistband and hem need to be done, but they are fully lined and pretty)
~Patterned a hoodie
~ Cut a sweatshirt
WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FINISH ONE PROJECT AT A TIME????
here's a glimpse at the week in pictures:
Jacket to pattern (ignore the stains, it needs to be washed, but it fits B perfectly!)
Pattern Pieces drawn out on tissue paper
All my pretty pieces just waiting for that perfect fabric to come along and sweep them off their feet...
Cutting the sweatshirt from a sweater - there will be some interesting seaming in this piece
Hello, I am a sheet - they call me MR. sheet
Laying pattern pieces on Mr. sheet to figure out what needs to be dyed
Ummmmm... that isn't really blue, but the orange isn't bad (still wet sample strips)
This wool is gorgeous - light blue and grey (my mom bought a box of woolens from an Auction, for like $1 years ago - I am so happy she gave me this piece!!!)
cutting the lining
two pairs of pants...
...now become one
ummmmm - this is the fabric dry, the blue looks like grey - it is kinda pretty. But that orange is no longer vibrant. I am a sad, sad girl.
Anyone have dye advice????
What have you been sewing????
