When I went through my small garment fabric collection I decided to sew a blouse that I've sewed before. It's a free pattern at Burda called the JJ Blouse. Since this time I have plenty of fabric I am going the whole 9 yds (no pun intended)! I'm making some changes to the length of the blouse, the height of the stand collar and the sleeve cuffs. Also I am adding a contrasting fabric.
Susan Khalje's book and enrolling in her The Couture Dress video lessons on Craftsy, I figure what best way to familiarise myself with these techniques than actual WIP. The pattern provided is Vogue 8648. Although I am not a dress person I think I should at least have one in my wardrobe!
Sewholic's Renfrew Top in mind so I scoured Burda only to find a Basic Tee pattern called Lydia for a steal. So this project is next.
BOM with Amy Gibson. The 12" blocks were rather large so I'm scaling it down to 6" blocks and restricting my colour palette to blues and cheddar. 2 blocks a month for 10 months, should be pretty easy to tackle but Amy's BOM is utilising a different set of skill every month so that should push the envelope a little.
Just Takes 2 quilt on the right. We've only done two sections of the quilt and I am buying backing?! Must be going wacky! I had to grab it because the colours were great and so was the price!
Verna Mosquera called Sew Pink.
