Lots done, but not enough

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.

This is just two of the ways both front and back. These are my favorite ways to wear it.DSCN0778

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.DSCN0784 DSCN0780










DSCN0787I 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.DSCN0793 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).
