I have gotten some sewing done in the past week and a half. Not nearly as much as I had hoped for spring break, but I have lots of sewing projects cut out ready to sew. I hate cutting so I do a lot all at once, then sew them when I get a chance. Here are some of the projects I did get a chance to sew though.
An Infinite dress that rostitchery made a great pattern for. This dress is so versatile, you can were it nearly 20 different ways.
The next project I completed was a skirt for my mom. It is a very basic A-Line skirt. She came and helped me draft the pattern and start the sewing. I had some malfunctions with the serger so we left and got food at Wal-Mart. Yeah for sewing breaks.
I made another formal dress. I just love the Simplicity 5112 pattern. I can be dressy or not depending on the fabric chosen. I have made a similar dress with this pattern in pink satin for Billy and Becky's wedding. I don't know when I will wear this but it is just too darling not to make a reason to wear it.
I also made a halter top that it really cute. I made it out of scrap fabric I had. It was a dress pattern that I really like that I just shortened to make a top. The fabric is a jersey knit with silver sparkles all over it. Here is a close up of the fabric as well.
The last project that I made this week is a satin hoodie. It didn't turn out too well. I drafted the pattern from scratch, so there are some measurement issues. I really like the way the fabric looks, so I might try this again, with some adjustments. I love how big the hood is on it, but it just hangs open silly. After I fix the pattern I will show another version (hopefully a better version).
