Sewing Room Friday
Since the spinning wheel didn't arrive as planned on Wednesday (my friend was out of town and didn't get back in time to pack it up and send it to work with her hubby), I ended up deciding to spend some time making some new spring clothes.
Sadly, I gained a few pounds over the winter and most of my spring/summer clothing doesn't fit right now. So I'm taking some of the sewing mojo I recovered doing costume work for Beauty and the Beast and am making myself a new spring wardrobe. So far, I've altered one pattern (nothing fits me right out of the package - grrr) and started on a couple a-line skirts. I've also picked up a couple 99 cent Simplicity patterns at Joann Fabrics for tops and shorts and will be making more tops and bottoms. I plan on assembly line sewing multiple pieces, just for efficiency sake.
Stay tuned for some more FO's in the near future. I'm on a roll!
