neeexxxt....

I've been digging around, trying to find a project. I'm out of sorts this week. I have the blahs...


So I'm thinking an easy, comfy (yet stylish, snap!) garment is due for a run. Like this Hotpattterns, the Classic Nouveau Uptown/Downtown Knit Dress.


I have a soft, soft green beefy knit, a gift from the fabulous Julia, that will be perfect! I think a little mindless tracing is just what the sewing doctor ordered to brighten my week.

And a song on my playlist right now...

  7. Speaking of green, what ever happened to that vintage skirt you gave us a preview of. It was in a green and white floral with a lapped metal zip and lots of gathers...
    That one looked sooo cute, I'd love to see it finished

  8. Just make sure the fabric you use for the neckline has a lot of stretch! I made this thinking my fabric would work and it did NOT! I had to rip it out and make it longer and then it gaped horribly! The sleeves make these funny little "poofs" too. Hopefully it'll work out better for you!

  9. Oh - I'm sorry you've got the blahs. That bites! I just printed that cute beach coverup from Fabric.com thinking it might make an adorable top (or new jammies). g
