sew? i knit!
I love the idea of this one: sew? i knit!
It's a bunch of knitters who sew too. Every round there is a theme. June/July it's a blouse. I didn't sign up for the first two rounds, but I happened to make the same thing they were making, just by coincidence (April it was a skirt, which I made, and May it was a bag, which I made....eleven). So, I figured I needed to get in on this action.
I sew a lot of my clothes but usually it's just a quick and dirty project, nothing special, just plain twill pants or a new black skirt, and it never makes it to the blog.
Here's a blouse I made last month, just before the sew-along started, so it doesn't count. But I'm basing the next one on this pattern, so I thought I'd show it anyway.
Burda pattern 2561, Robert Kaufman pimatex cotton, about 2.25 yards. I got the fabric at Hancock's of Paducah while I was there for the quilt show. It makes a great shirting fabric.
I plan to use the basic body pattern for the next one, but I'm going to leave off the collar and make a sort of ruffle instead (?) and make it short sleeved.
Here is a the fabric for the next one:
Meanwhile, if you're in the market for some sock yarn, stay tuned:
Yarn for sale tomorrow.
And maybe some tote bags. Fingers crossed.
