Hey look I finished my Burda Sew Along project, Skirt 111 from Burda 07/2009! 🙂
(Sorry these photos are so dark, it feels like night time all the time now but the shortest day is coming up so yay for more daylight soon!)
But that’s all good because I LOVE writing tutorials and you guys seemed to appreciate them so, win-win 😀
I kept this make simple, mostly following the instructions (or not), and it is 100% from the stash. The Ikea (Sthlm Blad in Black) printed canvas-cotton has been maturing nicely since July 2010 and the buttons are from my very first Fabric-a-brac trip in 2011, awesome!
You’re going to ask about the cardi now aren’t you? Hmm, well…that’s hanging up for a bit, we need some time apart.
The fabric was a bit ehh to work with and the pattern is ok but I cut it two sizes too big (I cut my usual 42 but this pattern was designed to sit more loose that I prefer) so while I’ve managed to take in the sides and sleeves now I need to fix the shoulders and sleeve head which are massive.
Aaaaand it’ll look a whole lot better with a good press.
It can be saved, it’s cute, it deserves it, probably in less than an hour but…not today, not this week. I need to make something exciting now or I’ll slouch into that mojo sucking place and you know what? IT’S OK TO STEP AWAY FROM A PROJECT FOR A WHILE.
This is not a UFO, it’s just on hold and I am ok with that 🙂
I did some emergency non-garment sewing on the weekend too but I’ll share that with you tomorrow.
Thanks everyone who stitched along with us
this last month, it was super awesome to discover so many new bloggers, so much talent, you guys made my May, honestly!
So, are you in for Indie Pattern Month? Go on… 😉
