New project

I am beginning to work on another dress pattern. This is a Vogue pattern with an empire waist that is sleeveless or with short sleeves with cuffs. I will make it with the sleeves. I am going to use fabric I purchased from Gorgeous Fabrics that is a stretch woven in a teal and brown paisley print on white background.

I have begun the pin fitting process. I made my usual FSA, narrow upper back and a 7/8 inch FBA. I will pin fit the skirt part next and hope to get this cut out tomorrow. I may also work on fitting and cutting out a knit top pattern as well. I kinda like to have some projects cut out and can then spend time just sewing several projects. I also have another dress pattern that I want to pin fit and get ready to cut out. I have some fabric that I just recently purchased from JoAnn's on sale that I want to use for this one.

I washed several fabric pieces this morning so I can move forward with sewing once I get patterns adjusted for them. I feel like I am being productive in going forward with sewing projects. So many ideas and such limited time to do it all!


  1. Linda - your new projects sound so pretty. Can I get a peek at the fabric you are using for V8178? Thanks!

  2. you're singing my song too - so many ideas not enough time.
    Seems to be a great "idea" time of year. I'm really loving the patterns you're choosing right now. Can't wait to see the dresses.
