Please Don't Forget!

I hope you'll take a moment and list your top five sewing blogs on this post by tomorrow evening.  I really would like to compile a listing that encompasses your ideal blogs, as well as, mine.

Thanks for all of your very kind comments on the Painted Wool Herringbone Pieces.  It seems as if the vest was the hit piece and the vest/skirt combo the most liked.  I have to tell you that I haven't worn that outfit to work yet, probably because I haven't been in the mood to change clothes.  Most of this week has been spent in pants outfits.

I do have a wearability report on the Painted Wool Herringbone dress because that did get worn to work.  I honestly didn't understand why the pics of the dress seemed to have excess fabric from the waist down.  I mean I made the dress exactly like I always do.  But in wearing it all day, I really noticed that extra space in the thigh area.  So I will be taking it in about an inch on each size removing the excess fabric and pegging the hem a little.  I believe this will solve the problem...I'll post another pic after I've fixed the dress.

Finally I'm not really a Winter Olympics kinda girl.  I mean all of that snow, ice and cold not my cup of tea. However I did watch the women's and ice dancing figure skating but I really bring this up because the Olympics is over this weekend.  Regular programming comes back to television and Scandal will be back for eight episodes without repeats starting Thursday evening...I can't wait!

I have something to do tomorrow so I won't be in the sewing cave.  I'll be back Sunday to finish up the brown knit dress.  I'm halfway through the construction and have an idea to add a little sass to the dress, so I'm looking forward to spending some time in the cave to complete it.  I hope you will get to spend quality time with your sewing machine this weekend...

...as always more later!

  1. I'm probably going to hurt someone if I don't get to spend some time sewing this weekend. Seriously. Especially since next weekend I'll be on your coast! I can't wait to see what you do to this dress to add sass! I'm sure it will be fantastic. g

  3. Hi Carolyn, I'm new to blogging myself, and I've really been enjoying your blog. I've been sewing in the snow like you! Here are five of my favorite blogs on the topics of sewing and vintage style: The Vintage Traveler, CarmencitaB, American Age Fashion, Oonaballoona, and Lilacs and Lace.
    I'm blogging about recreating designer garments and accessories from the 1930s - 70s.

  5. Carolyn, so that you know, I could not add to your list. Yours look quite comprehensive to me. As a matter of fact, when I am looking for inspirations, I look through your blog list or Tany's list. Your blog is much needed in my sewing adventure.

  7. I've always enjoyed the Olympics, but I find the ice skating competitions the most fascinating because I enjoy seeing the skating costumes. It is the closest there is to an Olympics for sewing too.

  11. Carolyn, Diary of a Sewing Fanatic was one of the first blogs I found when I first began my online search for sewing related blogs. Thank you, for your inspiration. I would have to say I really don't have favorites but the blogs I read most are yours, Goodbye Valentino, Gorgeous Things, Stitches and Seams, and Girls in the Garden.

  12. Congratulations on your interview!! I learned to smock when I was young and also do heirloom / French sewing but am a newbie when it comes to sewing my own clothes! So I do really appreciate reading your blog and getting the benefit of learning from your experience. My favorite sewing blogs (besides yours!) are Miss Celie's Pants, La Sewista, Erica B's DIY Style, Amanda's Adventures in Sewing, and Coletterie. Have a great week! Hallie
