Now that the adrenaline rush of the mini-wardrobe contest is over, I am kinda at a loss for the next big thing.
On the knitting front, I am continuing to work on my Juliet which is technically a quick knit but not when you have crafting A.D.D. I will be going back to knit group tonight since I haven’t been in over a month so that may get the knitting juices going.
On the sewing front, I decided to pair this wonderfully soft stretch cotton fabric
with view A of the Simplicity 3744 pattern. Given I will be lengthening this because I am not really into short dresses. Hmmm…maybe I will have it finished for our class party on 6/21. I make no promises because I am kinda burned out on the deadline crafting right now.
On another sewing note, found this Super Jiffy Simplicity pattern for a cute halter dress in the donation bin at school.
It has a cool feature in that the body is cut all in one piece so the only body seam is in the back. I would make the long one in some sort of flowy knit fabric which I think will be super cute. I’ll have to practice some pattern upsizing since this is a one size pattern for a size 10, Bust 32 1/2. My teacher said I should try the cut and spread method on the body. We will see what happens…
Anyhoo, I know I owe you pictures of my 3 items from the mini-wardrobe, but this June gloom is really cramping my style. So hopefully I will get it done this weekend which would make next week Fashion Week on Peacock Chic!
Until then happy crafting!
