I've been sewing

I found some sewing mojo!  I have been working on the chambray dress using McCall's 6124.  I have had to make a few adjustments upper back to wide so took a deeper seam in upper center back seam, side back seam to tight over hip area and also adjusted side seam for hip area.

I made a 1 inch FBA, had to go back and reduce princess seams in bust area from 5/8 to 3/8 inch.  My usual adjustments included forward shoulder, sway back and petite length adjustment.

Pictures to follow of work in progress later.

  2. Yah! I'm still struggling - I think I need to shop for fabric, that always works :-)

    1. I have been working on a chambray dress using McCall's 6124. I seem only motivated to sew intermittently- one due to a pulled muscle in my back and two I have been busy with lots of other things requiring my attention. Buying fabric is always a motivator!

    1. Rather slow sewing at the moment but getting there.

  4. I am sewing at a glacial pace right now.. but I'm finding it's the opposite for me - destashing a bit is motivating me!
