Long time between blog posts. I haven't sewn much in the last few weeks. But, with the season about to change, I expect a resurgence of sewing energy.
My Designers group challenge for July/August was hats. I love hats and this was a fun challenge, where I came away with lots of ideas. The photos of all the hats are on the Designer blog.
My hat is a tall-brimmed sun hat, made from black/white check fabric. The pattern is by HotPatterns, and is a free download at Fabric.com. It's called "Sunny Side Up" hat. I trimmed it with a wide black grosgrain ribbon and a black flower.
I love my hat. One day I will get a photo of it on my head and post it.
I continue to use my now new TNT blouse pattern, drafted using the SureFit system. I like fiddling around with designs and patterns. This white blouse turned out well, and who doesn't need another white blouse! In fact, I need at least 3 more.
It's nothing spectacular, but it fits and I need blouses for fall/winter.
I'm working on a black/white gingham blouse now, with a Mandarin collar and sleeves gathered at the hem. I need to get that finished and move on.
Happy September to all of you, and enjoy sewing some fall clothes. Ahhhh, it's in the air!
