Do you read the fine print? I don’t. Really, who knows what I have signed my John Hancock to in the past. Have you read the fine print on my blog, you know…where it mentions sewing and knitting? Did you think it was just gobbledy-gook? It’s not, I do sew and I do knit; just not very profusely. Summer is pretty much my only time to actually sew to completion, so without further ado, here are a few of my completed summer projects:
First up, is New Look 6892. A sweet little peasant style blouse.
Which I liked so much, I immediately made it again. This time with some vintage pillowcase fabric. (It looks much better ironed!)
Next up was this dress. Are you old enough to remember when women wore house dresses? I am. I wanted a light, summery house dress. I wear this without the tied belt and it is everything it promised to be.
And last was this tiered skirt, Simplicity 2609. You can’t really tell, but it has 4 gathered tiers. It looks like it would be easy, but gathering up all those tiers is not! The fabric is a vintage cotton and I think it will make a nice skirt for the transition from summer to fall.
There you have it. I wasn’t as productive as I would have liked to be, but since I started all the house renovation stuff in early July, this is not too shabby.
