Now, I'm working on the UFO contest at Pattern Review. For starters, I have four skirts that were cut out and ready to sew but I never did anything. I don't know why. There's a Vogue pattern suit that I've had laying around for a few years I am sad to admit. Then, there is a lightweight coat that will be perfect for when we get Spring weather again. All it needs is the buttonholes redone and hemmed! And, there is a couple other pieces that I could work on. This is one of the skirts, New Look 6628.
If that's not enough to keep me busy this month, I also have one or two items I want to put in the Refashion, Recycle contest. I love animal prints and I've had a swing jacket and dress
hanging in my closet for probably five years or longer. It's in perfect condition. (These aren't too good pictures) I wore it a few times years ago but decided all that animal print was too much for that outfit so it's just been hanging out in there until I figured it must be enough fabric in that swing jacket to make something else. I even have scraps left from this project, but I may not use them still. So far, I've taken the swing jacket apart. It was sewn & serged ever so neatly! I have a McCalls pattern that I want to use. As for the dress, I will take it apart and make a skirt and maybe even a tank top, each to be worn with other pieces (solid colors), probably not for the contest. I just had another though about the dress while reading this post. We will see how my schedule goes.
I have another non-sewing project that will take a big chunk of time this month and I've agreed to be an assistant for my director in my other business on a very part time basis. So my plate is full. But I like to keep busy, LOL
