|Simplicity 2364 as a dress|
The rest of August's sewing was productive and filled with a lot of repeats. When it's hot and humid or I have other more challenging things on my mind, it's not wise to start a new complicated sewing project. The pattern adjustments I make need a clear head and August wasn't the right month for that. But sewing something fun and easy is a great distraction and break from other tasks. So here' s look at what else got made up last month.
|McCalls 6201 dress|
|Vogue 7823 in Fabric Mart linen|
Five Pamela's Patterns Magic Pencil Skirts...skirt pattern
|One self-drafted silk chiffon poncho|
I also enjoy a thoroughly distracting, fun book when I have other more distasteful tasks in my life and here's one that fit the bill. Loved it, loved it.
I seem to be on a historic novel kick this summer but have been disappointed by the few others that I have read. This one was well-written, interesting and rewarding to read. I had not seen the good reviews on this one, found it at the library by accident and it was a delicious diversion for the last weeks of summer.
Next post, how I spent my summer vacation....and how my first quilt is progressing. Until then, it's good to be back in the blog world and back to some more "serious" sewing now that fall is in the air.
