The sad total: 10 items; 2 for me, 2 for Mitch, 1 for Logan and 5 for Myra. I sewed 15 yards, only 4.25 of which was from the stash. Fortunately, I haven't bought any fabric that wasn't immediately put to use this month, so at least that is headed sort of in the right direction.
The only new things I did this month were on the Fantasia dress, where the bodice was fully interfaced, which I'd never done, as well as the lapped side seam zipper. At least there was something!!
The pregnancy also necessitated some changes of plan, since fitted clothing just isn't working for me right now. I'm actually thinking of resuscitating my 6PAC, since it was almost finished, and replacing the Colette Ceylon dress with BWOF 07/2009-104 (which I already traced and have fabric for!). The dress is basically just a very wide A-line with shaping at the waist done with elastic shirring, which seems to me like it would be forgiving to my changing figure. For the Simplicity 2936 blouse, I think I will instead make New Look 6807 in a pretty electric blue rayon jersey.
Right now I am working on vintage Simplicity 9446, which I have been dying to make, and want to have for the summer. I'm planning on the maxi length with short sleeves in a lightweight lawn that just floats.
It is quite sheer, so I'll be underlining it with batiste. I'm working on tweaking the fit and shaping in the bodice right now. It's been slow going. I'm not sure why, but I think I'm a bit afraid of this dress. My first muslin was quite snug in the bust despite a small FBA. (Insert witty comment about maternity curves here.) I also think I'm going to convert the vertical bodice darts into gathers. They look a bit pointy as darts, and I think that underbust gathers will be more graceful. Otherwise I am going to try to be faithful to the design and construction techniques. Should be fun! I won't get to it today though, as we're heading out of town for the weekend. I'll be back to the machines on Monday. For those here in the States, have a safe and happy 4th of July!
