It’s hard to believe that the summer is officially over – that’s right today was the first day of school.
I was getting very excited at the thought of having at least one full day of nothing but sewing. However, last night, I couldn’t come up with anything that I was really enthusiastic about or had the right fabric for. After getting Taylor ready for school, doing the traditonal first day photo, and dropping her off. I came home and decided to go ahead and cut out fabric for the Simplicity skirt and wrap top combo (which seemed to take forever, I might add). Since I didn’t have any interfacing for this project, I went ahead and went to Joann’s where I found some nice jersey knit in teal – a color that I don’t have in my wardrobe. I hope it looks decent on me when I start getting pasty this winter. As I speak, it’s in the dryer waiting to become the Burda wrap sweatertop from the August World of Fashion issue. I’m very excited to get this started!
So, it looks like I won’t be getting any sewing done today, but at least I have a few projects cut out and ready to go. With that said, I leave you with this:
The photo on the left was Taylor’s first day of Kindergarten, the one on the right was from today – she’s officially a 4th grader.
