Wow! It's over half way over!! I had so much fun seeing everyone's sewing spaces for last THEME FRIDAY so I decided to show you mine this week.
|May 12th, Proportion seemed to be Sunday's lesson. If the white skirt had been a tich longer I think I could have pulled it off. I LOVE this tunic. You can see more pics and the story of its birth here.|
|May 13th, Me Made Polka Dot top and messy cutting table!|
|May 14th Me Made Patchwork skirt. Haven't worn it in eons and forgot how fun it is!|
|May 15th my trusty machines and new thread rack. I went to they eye Dr. and got told I looked springy in this top. Always a good day when you get compliments from random strangers!|
|May 16th One of my first knit tops. Love this fabric and think it's time to repurpose this shirt. I didn't know you need deeper hems on knits so just serged the edges and topstitched down. 1/4 in. seam allowances don't stay put in knits. It also wants to bunch up above my bust. Not sure what that's about...|
|May 17th, THEME FRIDAY's Hat|
I did a service to us all by discovering why our stashes seem to grow! We have Fabric ELVES!!
|Practicing my model face, (or really bright sun) This was what I actually wore for May 17th. To read about how much I love this dress, see here. I'm so pleased with this stashbusted piece! |
|May 18th, my trusty vintage dress form that I'm learning to use. MeMade Purple and green top.|
That's all I've got for today! Hope everyone has a great week!
Stashbusters, stay tuned, I've got some busted stash to show you!! Hope knits month is going well for you all!
Love the mess! I didn't realise you needed to leave bigger hems on knits until I made two of my marathon finisher t-shirts smaller. A double row of stitches combats it a little xox
Yep, I'm all about bringing reality into the sewing room. :)
Hemming, I guess we live and learn. I'm doing my best to figure out the double needle right now. Usually I use the zigzag stitch and make my hems 1/2 inch to 1 inch deep and it works much better.
