I haven't been around much lately, I know. I'm sorry. Sadly, I just haven't been in much of a blogging mood lately. I've been trying to spend less time online & more time sewing and catching up on things around the house. But I've got some fun plans for my blog later this summer (giveaways?) so thanks for sticking around!
My WIPs this week:
I felt I needed a new skirt for summer so I pulled out this pattern and got to work.
With all the gathers I would not call this a one hour pattern, but it only took me a few hours from cutting to wearing it. :)
I used a light corduroy that I found at WalMart over the winter. I would love to use a light cotton, but those of you who've been to Wyoming know the wind always blows here and a heavier fabric is a necessity for a skirt here.
Here is the start of a project/tutorial that I am working on. I'm using charm packs of Arcadia fabric & I would describe the pattern as a variation between a nine patch & a rail fence pattern. I should have it near completion next week. I hope you like it.
What would you think of doing a quick sew along? Would you play along?
If you haven't done so already be sure to stop by Freshly Pieced to see everyone's WIPs.
Thanks for stopping by!
