I’m currently working on McCall’s 6750. I’m making the sleeveless version, omitting the armhole facings.  I’m using Liberty Tana Lawn for the first time, as I got a single yard as a gift. This colorway is Pepper E. Anyway, I’m really starting to wonder if I’ve been misled, as this fabric is kind of terrible […](image)

Finding Balancestitchywitch

Sun, 18 May 2014 19:28:33 +0000

Current project: Colette Patterns Hawthorne dress   It wasn’t until I started sewing that I realized how much I missed it.  I have difficulty finding balance in my life because I’m pretty much “all or nothing” about most things.  But I have to tell you, I don’t want to have another semester like this past […](image)

Hi there!  I know, I know… I’ve been MIA here.  My life kicked into high gear at the end of summer, and it hasn’t slowed down a bit!  I haven’t had time to sew, and I really miss it, but right now I have other things to focus on.  I thought I’d post an update, […](image)

Grad school is intense so far. I am taking 2 classes right now, one of which (musical form and analysis) is taking basically all my time and attention to get through. As it turns out, 10 years is a lot of time in which to forget things like counterpoint. Ah well… I love it so […](image)

Pattern: Simplicity 1614 Fabric: Rayon Challis (ebay purchase) Notes: I am seeing this high/low hem tops everywhere this season.  I made one last year, which didn’t turn out so well.  I didn’t like how much longer that top was in the back – I prefer the more gentle rounded hem of this pattern.  I also […](image)

Pattern: Vogue 8856 Fabric: Bamboo jersey from fabric mart Notes: I always wonder how companies choose the view they will sew for the pattern envelope.  In the case of Vogue 8866, they chose the simpler version (you can see it in the link above.)  If I hadn’t clicked through to look at the illustrations I […](image)
