However, this means the time has almost come for me to actually put some sewing on the sewing blog (go figure). I will be the first to admit that I have sewing ADD; I almost never have just one project on the table at a time. This is something I hope blogging will help with, but I accept that I will never be the type of person who always just picks one project and follows it through from start to finish before starting the next one. Keeping that in mind, here are the possible candidates for my first blogged project:
Simplicity 2181, View C in this knit from JoAnn's (the green is darker than it looks in the picture)
2. Built By Wendy basic fitted shirt (from the first book) from lovely teal striped fabric I’m pretty sure I got for free off Craigslist
Simplicity 3956, View C, in brown poly shantung with coral patterned overlay (also from JoAnn's)
Plus, I already have all the pieces of McCall's Costume 3789 cut out to make the tunic part of a costume for the BF (Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon, if you were curious.)
Each of these has their merits. I really want to do the sleeveless top before sleeveless weather is completely gone here in WI. I’ve not yet done a nice fitted shirt, and the Built By Wendy pattern looks nice; I’m just afraid of the stripes, even though I adore the fabric. The long sleeved pattern I think will look really flattering and I’ve been trying to get more brown into my wardrobe. None of the sewing will happen this weekend, unfortunately, as I will be on a trip with my research group to Milwaukee. Any thoughts on what I should start with when I get back?
