It would seem that I have a touch of the hay fever today. Sniffle, sniffle. Ugh. Just took a Benedryl, in the absence of anything non-drowsy, so we’ll see how long I last before I need a nap! I suppose it isn’t the ideal time to start cutting pieces for a dress, but oh well.
Yes, I’ve actually been sewing!
(Can I say how glad I am that the light has returned? Hurrah for better photos.)
I proclaim my first sewn top a success! Pattern is the fabulously easy and wearable Simplicity 3835, a Built By Wendy pattern that everyone’s been sewing up for ages in blogland. I did the top in size 14, with the slightly longer sleeves of Dress A, minus the sleeve elastic. It fits great and is super comfy – I’m definitely going to be sewing up a few of these for the spring and summer!
The fabric, pictured in my last post, is Chocolate Lollipop “Cartoon Flowers”. A little loud on its own for me, maybe, but with some jeans and punk-ish accessories I think it’ll do me just fine.
Did I mention that it was really easy? Oh, one other thing I did – I cut out a little patch of the fabric, and sewed it to the inside of the back neck so I can tell which way is which.
I think it’s really cute.
Upcoming: more sewing, knitting, rather tardy book reviews, and more. I’m really feeling inspired these days – maybe it’s the return of spring, the snow melting and having my window open. I love it.
