July was a pretty crazy month around here. The trip to Tennessee took a lot of my time and energy, not to mention the week away from my sewing room. Still, it was a reasonably productive month.
1) Kitschy Coo Skater Dress x3 for Myra and Emma
2) Kitschy Coo Lady Skater Dress for me
3) Logan's sensory tent
4) Ottobre 02/2006-11 pants for me
5) McCalls 6035 blouse for me
6) McCalls 3830 knit skirt for me
7) Simplicity 3503 dress for me
8) Kitschy Coo Dolman Top maxi dress for Myra
That is a total of 10 items. As I look over the list I realize that all but one of the garments was sewn from a pattern I had used before. That's really not like me, but it sure made for faster and simpler sewing. I am starting to see the benefit of having a TNT or two to just whip out garments! So, I sewed up 22.5 yards, which brings my total for the year so far to 143.75 yards sewn. I brought in 31.25 yards. A large chunk of that was gifted and two of those pieces have already been sewn, but still... The yearly total in is 171.75, which puts me over for the year nearly 30 yards. I'm a stashbusting failure.
Along with the kid sewing, there are a few things I'd like to make for myself. Topping my list is a pair of white jeans as suggested by Carolyn. I ordered some white twill from Mood and once it arrives I'm going to sew those up. I'm on the fence about style though. Initially I thought I'd make skinnies, but would straight leg or a slight flare be more useful? My last pair of white jeans were wide legged and I wore them to death. Tell me what you think! Is the skinny jeans fad on the wane, or should I jump on it while it lasts?
