My New Project Line-Up

Category: , , , , ,

In this blurry photo, you see a bench with my next FIVE sewing projects. (Excepting, of course, the handkerchiefs that Catherine and Michael won that I still haven't finished. I will sew them before I make another single stitch.)

From left to right: McCall's 5064, BWOF 05-2009-114, BWOF 05-2007-124, Jalie 2682, and McCall's 5860. (The one without a link is not in the archives yet.)



They are all traced, cut out, and have seam lines drawn in for tissue fitting. (I won't tissue fit the Jalie top, however.) The two BWOF patterns have tape around the curves and the curves are clipped. (I will do that to the McCall's patterns, too.)

And now for the lovelies! All of this fabric I purchased in Portland during the Pattern Review Weekend. Clockwise from the top right:
First, a lime green and a charcoal grey cotton jersey for the Jalie top (the green will be sleeveless, the charcoal will be long sleeved).
A brown rayon-linen blend for the swing coat and a bamboo print for the lining (the fabric is made of bamboo, too).
Next there is a large, bright floral quilting cotton by Alexander Henry for the McCall's jacket with a bright yellow to underline it.
Then there is a bright pink cotton eyelet by Anne Klein for the BWOF spaghetti strap dress with a pale pink batiste for lining.
And finally (but first on my sewing list), a bright blue/aqua embroidered crinkly cotton for the other BWOF (that you can't see).





I am pretty excited about this project line up and the sewing challenges represented here.

The Pattern Review Weekend was a lot of fun and terribly encouraging. I was able to meet two people whose blogs I regularly read, and spend some time with lots of other quality people. Hopefully I'll get copies of some of the pictures taken and will be able to post them.
