Another month, a late post… Better late than never! I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed by a lot of things recently and my sewing room has been a little neglected as a result. For that reason, I only have 4 goals for July:
- Make Simplicity 1696. This was actually one of my goals for June but I just did not get round to making them. This pattern is one of my #2017makenine pattern picks, and I had planned on making them for work but then the dress code changed. I still want to make some because I’d love trousers that actually fit…
- Make a lightweight hoodie. I found a free pattern online but I wasn’t happy with it so I ordered something from Kwik Sew (maybe there’s a velour Juicy Couture tracksuit on the horizon…)
- Finish some pattern testing. I’ve had this cut out for weeks but it’s fallen by the wayside as the whole test experience has been a bit strange (more on that another time).
- Join in with #thebigstitch. The British Heart Foundation are running an upcycling competition to encourage people to use their creative skills to raise money for the charity. I’ve already bought something to refashion!
June in review
I did refashion a dress in to a top and I have managed to catch up on a few blog posts but I didn’t get a chance to do anything else on my list! I did do an alteration on a prom dress for a colleague of my mums and I was really pleased with how it turned out. It was really nice to work on something for someone else and I enjoyed working on something a bit more formal than the things I make for me!
