Here's a view of my new living room, complete with cats:
With a little luck, I'll even start sewing again before I have to go back to work. I want to start with something quick and easy. So I'm thinking of re-using a pattern I know. But, of course, those new patterns are tempting. I think I've pretty much decided, but here are my choices.
First, in tops, I'm thinking another Renfrew, another little peasant blouse, or another short-sleeve shirt of some kind.
OK, you're right. I decided already. I want to make this Lisette top in this crazy owl fabric. I know, it's a little too much. But I think the slouchy look with the crazy fabric ... and the right pants ... could totally work. Is it too crazy?
On the short-list is another dress ... I'm leaning toward the maxi knit dress in a turquoise jersey. But starting a new project in jersey is not my idea of easing into it!!
I like the two Lisette dresses - a lot - but I don't have the appropriate fabric to make them. And I am absolutely positively sewing from my stash!!
Otherwise, I did finish some sewing recently. I finally finished my Colette Beignet, but it's too big. And I really don't want to go back in and shrink it up. There's the lining and all that. So I'll live with this version being too big and if I make another one, I'll go down a size. But doing all those buttons was a wee bit of a chore, so I don't envisage another one right away. One day I'll put up a F.O. photo ... one day
In the meantime, enjoy some cat pictures. ;)
Oohh, gonna getcha!!
'Til next time!!
