I've made two things already, but these projects are still WIP:
This frill is hand hemmed in a tiny roll. I love doing that stuff! I have cut it down considerably and just have to put the sleeves back in and the side seams and bottom hem and buttons, should be done by the time I go to bed this evening. Fingers crossed :)
Far less advanced - all that has happened so far is fabric prewashed and pattern ordered from afar, is MrC's shirts. The new trend for men's shirts to be in candy colored checks is so dull. My extroverted hubby who works in his own business half of the week loves a bit of flamboyance, and inspired by a combo of a dear friend's recent shirt purchases in Sydney and the wonderful Oobop's adventures with Butterick 5007, I've decided it is time to put my sewing machine where my mouth is and make the lovely MrC some shirts.
Honestly without Oobop's make of this scary pattern, I'd never look at it twice! It is winging its way here from afar as I type.
Exhibit #2 - A shabby chic Jacobean print by my much loved Jason Yenter.
I have a few other summer weights to make up - a lighter version of the ruffle smock to truly replace the cool (in both senses) original, and a couple more maxi dresses. I am living in lightweight maxis in this crazy heat!
My other sewing task right now is a big pile of cushions for a fair next weekend. 5 down, 18 to go! arrgh!!I just realised that all of these makes, cushions included, are in quilting cottons. Excellent quality one with a good drape, and perfect for these types of garments.
So what's on your ironing board, apart from scorch marks? ;-)
