I came home from my first year at college, and apart from immediately realizing how much I already missed campus and friends, I realized how much stuff I had! Specifically, how many clothes I had! Naturally, this led to a three day cleaning spree in which no drawer, cabinet, box, shelf or dark corner of the closet was safe. I came up with four bags of clothes to donate. That was just my room. Then on to the sewing room, where I filled two huge bags with fabric scraps to donate as well.
In the process, I also came across some less than stellar creations of mine, the creations that came up short...the clothes I made without the right materials, without the right effort, or really just without thought. Nevertheless, they (and some other garments) will be saved!
I love the seersucker, and the buttons, but the fit in the bodice is so wrong! (I guess that's what happens when you use a children's sewing pattern...)
Eww...not really sure what's going on here. For graduation, we wore light blue gowns, and I needed something that wouldn't show underneath. Pretty sure that I finished this to wear under my gown with about 30 minutes til show time (that would explain the awfulness here).
I actually really like this dress and the fabric, but there is a bit of a fit issue at the waist that I want to fix in order to make it more wearable.
While I am pretty happy with how this turned out sans pattern, the waist band is pretty wonky.
Eww what is going on here?Dress! Which I loved, but is in desperate need of some darts.
Oh hello, serger that I have never used before! Maybe this summer is the time to actually learn how to use you!
I'll be updating with finished versions of those projects, not to mention new ones! I already have a stack of fabric waiting to be transformed, and I haven't even been to JoAnns yet!
