Back on the Grind: May/June Sewing Goals recap and July/August Sewing Goals
May/June 10,000 Hour Sewing Challenge Recap
* Simplicity 3877 (Mother's Day dress)
*McCall 6119 (halter top)
*Simplicity 2406 (Wadder )
*McCall 5041 (sheath dress)
*Nursing Pillows (2 of them, gifts for my nephews)
*Simplicity 3503 (Maxi Dress)
*Kwik Sew 3503 (My First Swimsuit)
The two pieces I was most happiest with were my Simplicity 3503 Maxi dress (which I wasn't too sure was going to work with that huge print and loud bright green color) and my first swimsuit, Kwik Sew 3503.
July/ August 10,000 Hour Sewing Challenge Goals
For July and August I intend to spend my time trying to create a bigger summer wardrobe, full of interchangeable and fun pieces. Since I live in Savannah, it's bound to be HOT until October, so my clothes will definitely get good wear. It seems I'll be doing a continuation of May/June challenge details which I posted HERE. I still need MORE PLAY CLOTHES!!! That means no complicated dresses, tops, etc. I'm all about EASY to sew, cute pieces such as shorts, tops, quick dresses, etc. I'm tired of trying to find decent clothes to go out in. It seems my wardrobe is currently composed of semi-formal clothes (for church) and some cute casual clothes. I need more casual-but-cute clothes. Well I've already gotten started. I'm working on another Kwik Sew 3503 swimsuit in this great black and white swimsuit fabric with flecks of silver.....
Next in queue is another Simplicity 3503 maxi dress and Simplicity 3867 top. Don't be surprised if you see multiple versions of a pattern or I revisit some patterns from the past. Here's some possible patterns I plan to use....
