Every day I open my Internet browser, my admin window for my blog comes up and every day I wonder if I should post something, it’s been so long. Or if I should just let it die or what, I still don’t know.
Anyway, this past month I mostly spend sewing and I thought it would be interesting to see how much I can accomplish in a month. There was some knitting, too, but not much, and no crocheting going on. It was great motivation to watch the The Great British Sewing Bee (look it up on youtube if you’re not in the UK, it’s absolutely brilliant).
I am not a fast learner with this sewing thing. It’s been over 4 years now and I finally feel like I have some idea of how to do some things. But I almost always mess up some part of every project I make.
So, during the month of April, I sewed the following:
3. Miette Skirt from Tilly and the Buttons
4. Washi Dress from Made by Rae, where I screwed up the shirring several times and now it’s crooked, but I am not taking it out again. Let’s call it a muslin, shall we?
5. Moss Mini Skirt from Grainline which actually is quite nice, but I had to do the fly zip several times and it still is not right. But I have no idea how to fix it. I’ll read up on the technique before attempting another version.
8. Simple T-shirt from Ottobre 2/2013, which went great until the very last seams where I managed to put a couple of puckers into the side seams. I tried to unpick, but I can’t do this with viscose without getting holes in the fabric, so that as well, will stay as it is.
I will be participating in Me Made May 2013, that should provide some inspiration and motivation as well. I am planning on resurrecting an old design UFO during the month as well.
