My serger malfunctioned. So it went to the sewing machine hospital for the week. After getting it back last night, I felt like I had a brand new machine! But I have to tell you, I was on edge all week...sort of like missing a family member. Now that she's home again, we can all breathe normally.
It did give me a few minutes during the week to plan some next projects. Like a crazy woman, I commited to Me Made June 11. This should be interesting...wearing something handmade every day in June and posting about it. Thankfully, it can be a whole outfit, an accessory, knit, sewn, whatever. And I think I pretty much do that all the time anyway. But I did, of course, think about my next round of sewing.
My plans? De-stash...use what I already have.
A knit maxi dress. After seeing Susan's McCall's 6074, I realized I have that same pattern and some great knit fabric in my stash. And it's a one hour dress????? What could go wrong?
I wonder how I could do that?????
I LOVE the neckline on this top, and the tie scarf attached, but I think I'll make mine short sleeved or even a kimono short sleeve instead of the ruffle. I have a Burda pattern that I think I can use for this.
An anthro-inspired tote :
An eyelet JCrew inspired dress (no longer available):
I have some black eyelet and some white eyelet....maybe one of each?
And another dress, from a beautiful ikat print stash fabric, made fromVogue DKNY 1236:
Oh, where to begin...what would YOU make first? So many choices.
I love being a girl.
