This year I'm not taking a week off to sew since my firm has summer fridays. Our offices close at 1pm on Fridays so I decided to take 1/2 vacation days for July and work from home during August. That way I will have a summer of 3 day weekends - plenty of time to create and also have a few adventures with my daughter and the grandkids!
My first weekend was this four day weekend due to Independence Day falling on a Monday. After a quick trip to the grocery store Friday afternoon, I've pretty much been in the sewing cave the entire time. Now I know this is a big "outdoors" holiday but I honestly hate these days. There's always so much traffic, so many people and so much involved in getting to and from the beach, the fireworks, etc. that I no longer enjoy going.
However, I have had the most relaxing weekend in the sewing cave and quite a few new pieces to wear to work.
So this is what I made this weekend ~
Three t-shirt dresses from McCalls 7348:
A maxidress refashioned from a tank top, a TNT dress from a great linen print and a tank top.
Here's a pic of all seven pieces:
I have a back log of garments to be photographed and talked about here on the blog. Due to the holiday weekend, pics won't be taken until next Sunday so everything will show up on the blog after that.
I had a great weekend! It was relaxing, creatively fulfilling AND I added some much needed variety to my wardrobe. I have a lot of McCalls 6559 dresses from last summer but I'm already bored wearing them. It will be nice to wear some new pieces. Also my to-sew list has a few more "DONE's" on it which is always encouraging!!!
...as always more later!
