I’ve been meaning to write this for a few days in the hopes that telling other people what I am planning to sew might mean I actually get around to sewing! I was going to go to bed about an hour ago, but the street just up from my flat is currently being dug up. I am going to guess that it’s a water leak because about a year ago the digging was right outside my flat because I was the one who reported the water leak that meant the street got dug up at about this time of night!
Anyway, I currently have a load of projects cut out, but have lost the mojo to actually sew them. They are all either TNTs, something I have sewn at least once before so I don’t know why I’m not just getting on with it, or simple alterations. So – post about them – and hope the posting fairy works for me (it has in the past).
First up, another Burda 02-2010-104 cut from an old Simplicity 4137, in a black and white cotton print.
Two different belts for my black cherry print dress
A simple black stretch petticoat (or half-slip for those the other side of the pond)
A simple alteration to a charity shop purchase – about a size too large which means removing a side zip (I hate unpicking)
Another skirt, about three sizes too large, but with a centre back zip which means just taking in the side seams. Cost me 99p in a charity shop and I know I will wear it to death if I can just get around to altering it.
A dress I’ve mentioned before:
A dress and a top from this jersey fabric:
the jersey is too thin so will have to be lined for this dress (the lining is already cut out). I’ve made the dress once before and wore it a lot last winter so I’m looking forward to having another version.
and because I got a generous cut I was able to squeeze a top out of the remnant:
Just typing this post has made me realise how much I want to wear the clothes that are waiting to be sewn.
The Slapdash Sewist always makes herself a birthday dress (and her birthday is the same as mine) so I should probably try to sew one of the above dresses in time for my birthday (although nothing I sew could ever be as fabulous as this).
