Sewing for Today

I made the buttonhole and sewed the button on my jacket. Now that project is complete.

I then repaired a torn place on my DH’s shirt that he has been patiently waiting for me to do. Another project complete!

Next I cut out my New Look 6145 blouse pattern. This is an OOP as far as I can determine as I have not found it on their website. I am making View B. After cutting out my size(s), I then pin fitted the blouse on my dress form as well as me. It was apparent that I would have to make a FBA, even using the largest size which according to pattern will exceed my bust size. I don’t think so. In doing this, I decided to keep the resulting dart.

I then traced the KS skirt pattern referenced in an earlier post. I did not cut out the pattern as I had to stop and make dinner! I need a take home chef!

Not exactly what I had hoped to accomplish for today. Yet, I do feel good though as I am now starting new projects. I have to remind myself that pattern fitting is also part of the sewing process. It is either that or making a muslin. That would take even more time.


  1. Yea! for finished projects. I love your buttons and fabric from the Fabric Hut.

  2. I'm sorry, what is FBA? KS? Thanks.

  3. Linda, FBA is full bust adjustment.
    KS is Kwik Sew patterns.
