New Year's Eve Sewing

I started sewing on the KS top this AM.  After DH got up, sewing was put aside until later this evening.  I have just about completed the KS top.  I have mixed feelings about it but I am pleased with how the FBA came out as it worked well.  The dislike is how the front neckline is flipping over.  Obviously this is an issue that others have had as noted in the reviews on PR.  Again I am reading the reviews after the fact.

One person's solution was using a binding instead of the facings.  She then cover-stitched the bindings.  I may give this a try with the next top.    I think I will postpone making another one for now.    I have a KS top I made earlier with cowl neck that I really like the fit.  I want to make a long sleeve version of that.

I am on a kick to make several tops/blouses.  I also have some skirts in mind as well.  I also need to make some jackets.  I toyed with the idea of participating in the a jacket a month sew along mentioned on Sewing Guild.  However I know how my life and work schedule goes and I don't think I will be successful.

I am not sure that I achieved all the sewing goals I set for myself for this year.  No matter I am so happy that I love to sew.  I continue to learn more about sewing and continue to work on fitting.  I truly have enjoyed reading other sewists' blogs, always inspiring and also very helpful.  Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year.


  1. Happy New Year to you too. I enjoy reading your blog and like to stop by and see what you're up to.

  2. Happy New Year! I, too, spent the evening with my machine, and my passion. Can't think of a better way to ring in 2011. Wishing you the best in the upcoming year!
