I'm pretty excited about the new month because it jumpstarts my May/June 10,000 Hour. But before I can move on to my new challenge goals I need to bring my April/May Challenge months to a close. Sorry, no direct pics in this post. Ugghh, I know--I promise to include some in the as I always do:)
Looking back over the last 2 months I have no regrets. It truly was a time for "Special Occasion" sewing. At the beginning of March I made my daughter's Father/ Daughter Banquet dress. Then I had to move on to my Gala Gown to ready in time for early April. I finished the month up by making me and my daughter's Easter dresses. Somewhere in the middle I made a Cynthia Rowley dress. So 5 dresses in 2 months time. I would have love to sewn more but I had some client work that kept me somewhat occupied as well. So for the past 2 months I was exactly where I wanted to be---busy sewing!!!
Ok to move on to the 2 months that lay ahead. I'm working on my Mother's day outfit as we speak. I'm making 2 pieces and I don't have much time to get them done before the end of the week. I'm still deciding on patterns but I MIGHT (you know we seamstresses always change our minds) have narrowed down the fabrics I plan to use. For the top I have a sheer textured polyester with very interesting colors----white, orange, light and dark gray, green (pretty interesting shade)---all in an unique pattern. It will be a top of some sort. I also have white cotton sateen which will probably serve as a pant of some sort. Still trying to work it out but it's coming slowly but surely:) I'll give you a sneak peak later this week provided I don't change my mind again. I just don't feel like being too fancy for Mother's day. I kinda feel like I should do something Bohemian chic. I'll figure it out.....
As far as the rest of the month and next goes---I'll be focusing solely on making casual Summer clothes which I highlighted in a previous post here, with the exception of a cute outfit for church here or there. It's fair to say that I'll be picking patterns from the same pile I showed in April. My emphasis is cute and casual. That's what I'm all about. So I'm keeping it simple and uncomplicated.....and of course fun.
