I said a sneak peek! *LOL* I've finished two jackets both made from Butterick 4980. A skirt (pictured above) and a dress from Simplicity 4014 which made it's original debut in my wardrobe as the reversible garment in my last Timmel SWAP entry.
As usual when I start sewing a big project there are changes. I've added a piece or two...another dress - made from changes to my TNT dress pattern - and a jacket from the white cotton pique that recently arrived from Fabric.com. For it, I am going to finally use the McCalls 5007 pattern that has been collecting dust in my pattern collection and that everyone and their mama has already made!
There are still two more dresses to be sewn besides the new added pieces. One from a silk/cotton yellow paisley print using this Butterick pattern (View A):
And one from the lemon yellow linen featured in the original wardrobe collection picture. This was going to be a jacket but I decided that I would get more wear from two little white jackets than from one very bright lemon yellow one. Thus another dress was born! The fabric will become a sleeveless sheath dress from my TNT pattern with some interesting accents.
Since Friday begins a three-day holiday weekend (4th of July here in the US) and I only have plans for a barbecue on Saturday afternoon...I will probably spend the majority of my weekend sewing. So I know several of these garments will emerge from my sewing machine. However, the new pieces that I just added will probably be completed next weekend.
Finally, thanks to everyone who left such kind comments about my daughter's dress and the Little Prince! I am very proud of both of them!!!
Show and tell begins tomorrow...so look for it!
