It's time for Sew Crafty Friday at Shereen's Blog! http://w8ng4him.blogspot.com/ Hey, I know there are a lot of talented folks out there because I've found you via my search for my ABCs of crafty blogs. So go on over and join in the fun!
My crafty project is this blouse I just finished. I am very pleased with the fit, and happy that I cut out two of them. The other one is an off-white with roses on it. I usually have trouble with things falling off my shoulders because I made them big enough for my bust. This time, I was smart enough to cut the shoulders a size smaller!
This is Simplicity Pattern 4077. There is a long-sleeved version, too, so I'll probably make one or two more for the fall. Since I like the bodice, I might alter the neckline and finagle it a bit to make a jacket. We'll see.
The other things I did this week was to finish the pajama top I've been making and to put bias binding around the neckline of the dress with the yellow top. I chose pink for the binding since it matches the skirt and the sash. One of these days, I'll have my husband take a picture of me wearing it, as well as the turquoise and white dress I made a while back.
I made myself a libary bag, too. Just a simple tote with a heavy fabric on the outside that looks like a red bandana and ticking stripe on the inside. I simply measured around some magazines I'd taken from the library and worked from there. Maybe now, with my books/magazines in one spot, I won't be late in returning them, LOL!
I'll be back later with a "T" blog or two!
(PS--taking pictures in a mirror is difficult, LOL!)
