Put I have picked my first project for February. A simple dress SIMPLICITY 2894 . I have made a few things before, but this time I want to take my time and be detailed and finish professionally. The last couple of things I made started out great but I get lazy and just want it to be finished. I am using muslin to start. I probably don't need it, but as a plus size its better to try then to make too small.
I have two fabrics that I can not decided between.
A: is a pretty Pink and Green paisley pattern.
B:Brown and white pattern but is an amazing quality fabric picked up in Orlando.
As I see the pattern come together I will decide between the two. I should be completed by the weekend and should have decided on the next pattern to use. I say a jean pattern used on another blog. Many I will try my hand at denim. I have a lot of it from tote bags I used to create.
After this I would like to create a shirt, one pair of pants, and one maxi dress. Can you every have too many maxi dresses? If I can learn to make them really well, there will be no stopping me. I joined the Join the Challenge: Sew Your Own Wardrobe For a Year! http://sewyourownwardrobeforayearchallenge.blogspot.com/
I hope to be able to have a few things in my sewing treasure chest by the start of April. So Please send all the encouragement to me :)
Sewing my own clothes has me obsessed with shoes - not like I was not before :) but I wonder if this is a side affect?
