I Am Back!

Back to sewing! YAY! Thanks again for all the well wishes!
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
Happy Sewing!

Welcome back. I've joined the same contests on PR. I've got to clean out the unfinished stuff before moving on to the new stuff.
