Whew! Finished!

There’s nothing like finishing up a big project to make you celebrate. This weekend I put the finishing touches on numerous ‘Little Black Dress Aprons’ and made an extra to put up in my etsy shop, just to see how it does there. Before I start on my next time-consuming project, I decided to ‘reward’ myself with some ‘me sewing’ – a Jalie 2805 shirt in a white burnout I picked up several months ago from Fabric.com. I also broke down and purchased Bettsy Kingston’s Acton Pants which I’m hoping to try out soon. Now to find some material worthy of such a (potentially) cute pattern!

What did everyone else work on this weekend?

    I love the LBD apron! This weekend we just spent as much time outside as we could. Last night though, I worked on getting the pieces ready for a bias skirt using Simplicity 2451. Since I’ve never made a bias garment before, I’m a bit nervous.

      I’ve only done one bias garment a long time ago. Let me know how it goes – I think I may make some skirts for this spring and will be looking for some good patterns!

    I bought the Action Pants pattern also because I thought it had great possibilities for derby. We all love wearing cute “panties” to skate it! I’ll make the waist come up a little more to cover up the backside more, but other than that, it’s perfect!

      OOOOh, I can’t wait to hear what you think about the pattern too! I managed to stop by the store yesterday and pick up some ribbon… maybe I’ll be able to get started today!
