Hi all. I know it appears as far as blogging goes I've dropped off of the grid. Life kind of took off for me this past summer, and I have been sewing for clients like crazy. This Blog was basically for me to chronicle my sewing endeavors and growth. But since I started sewing for others, it just kind of took off and my clientele has really grown. So, I am going to try and get back on target and get back to showcasing my sewing for myself.
I am not really sure where I wan to go. As my full time job which I actually enjoy pays my bills, my sewing gives me the ability to work out my creativity knots and also to make some extra cash. I have actually done pretty good sewing for other, well beyond my expectations.
Here are a few things I that I have done in the last month, that I had not had an opportunity to blog about.
The green dress is a vintage Simplicity Jiffy pattern, No. 5363 which I purchased off of Etsy. When I tell you its so simple, it was just to easy and I can see a this dress in my closet in several variations. The Pattern literally has two pattern pieces, and a sash. I should have added pockets put I guess I was way to excited and forget.
The other look is a pair of gold wide legged pants I made using a pattern, I honestly can't remember which pattern though. I do remember adding a casing and elastic, as the pattern called for a side zipper oh and of course a zipper. The pants are made out of a very flowy challis I found at Fabricmart.com. The black knit top is a Ann Taylor top I got from a thrift store.
