Okay lets get to this month's sewn garments update ~
Six new garments were made this month...five were blogged. I've carted the last maxi dress around just haven't been in the mood to have pictures taken yet.
This month I made:
- Two Simplicity 8871 - both maxi versions of the short woven dress
- Another Katie tunic
- Three Myosotis dresses
All maxi versions - 1 w/short sleeves, 1 w/o sleeves & 1 totally hacked
(this one that has yet to make it to the blog)

My sewjo was in full effect and I filled a major hole in my summer wardrobe by adding 5 more maxi dresses to the closet. I'm currently working on the last maxi dress from my cut pile ~ a new pattern. One of my goals for this sewing weekend is to develop a new cut pile. This system seems to be working for me so I'm carrying it forward into fall.
Fabric In & Out Update ~
I broke my fabric fast when I went to Zooks last weekend and purchased 10 yards. I'm not upset that I purchased fabric especially since Zooks fabric doesn't last long in my fabric collection. The top two pieces are already slated to become shirts and will be cut this weekend.
I also purchased another 9 yards from Fabric Mart. A Milly print I'd drooled over for weeks was getting low at FM and a scarf type print. This scarf type print was one I've been searching for, so another fabric off my "must find" list. Neither of these fabrics will be sewn soon but again I'm good with that.
Actual totals ~
August MTD In: 19 yards
August MTD Out: 2.25 yards
YTD In: 265
YTD Out: 210.75
I'm still 54.25 yards more in than out. Honestly though I'm good with this. I have no plans to fabric shop in the upcoming months. I'm looking forward to putting my summer fabric away and pulling out some transitional/fall pieces.
End of the Quarter Update ~
As I said earlier I am moving into transitional sewing. So here's a recap of all my summer sewing ~
I have sewn 17 garments since the end of May. I'm looking forward to sewing some tops and shirts to wear over my jeans. Yes, I will still be wearing my maxi dresses and skirts for the rest of September but I know colder weather is coming.
So I will be sewing some this weekend and I hope you get the chance to sew too!
...as always more later!
