Gosh, I know I say it all the time, but I can’t believe how quickly the days pass. How is your summer treating you so far? It’s hot and dry here — we could use some rain! The good part about no rain is that the grass doesn’t grow as fast which means less mowing for me.
Less mowing = More sewing! ;-D
I finally finished a top for me that I started last summer. That’s a bad habit — I start something and then it gets put aside if the week gets too busy. But — when I pick it up again it feels like a quick project!
I used an Anna Maria voile from a year or two ago. The print on the fabric is so busy that it’s hard to see the shirt style. It’s New Look 6781.
The pattern suggested rows of trim on the bodice but I thought that would be too much for this busy fabric. So, I played around with my machine and stitched along the zigzag lines of the print. You can’t really see the extra stitching unless you’re about to kiss me, but I like it anyway. “I” know it’s there and that’s what counts, right?
I love the fit and the softness of the fabric. It’s a really comfortable shirt and I know I’ll get lots of use out of it for a few years.
I’m home today while some painters do their thing in our family room. It’s such a luxury to be home and have some cleaning time in the middle of the week and I’m having a great time! Must get back at it!
