Sewing Projects This Summer

Photo from

I've gotten quite the sewing bug lately... it must be because my machine is in the shop. You always want what you can't have.

So, I cut out a few patterns that I am excited about. 

The first is the slip pattern from Gertie. I was just going to buy one until I saw that they were $25+. Umh, no way. I went to the fabric store, bought a yard of black no-static lining fabric and it's all cut out and ready to go. 
I'm excited to wear it with a midi skirt. 

I also just ordered this fabulous pattern for a long knit dress, so I am planning my attack there. 

And I am so, so, so close to finishing this shirt, but my machine started acting a bit funny right before I sewed the sleeve to the shirt. So I worked on a bit of gathering and then I'll be ready when my machine comes back. 

Oh, and remember that table that I posted about recently?? Well, I got it for my birthday. I came home and my husband had secretly purchased and assembled it for me! Kind of amazing. I'll post pix soon. I can't wait to test out the sewing standing up! I can already tell you that cutting from a higher surface is SO much better on my back. 

What are you working on??
