In the midst of lots of busyness, I am working on another test of the Hope skirt pattern. This time I can reveal that I am using the mystery fabric of a month ago! (What's This) I know I have been very rude to keep you all waiting over a month when you all made such lovely guesses. Some of which I just might have to make!
This skirt has a unique place in my sewing repertoire as the first real sewing pattern I have created myself. At some point in the future, the pattern will be available for sale in my Etsy shop, but there is still a lot of work yet to be done to accomplish that goal.
Leimomi of The Dreamstress, one of my favorite sewing/historical fashion blogs, recently made a call for pattern testers for her pattern line, Scroop Patterns. I jumped at the chance to join the rolls of potential pattern testers.
So apparently, Miriam and I just party whenever our parents are away. I invited her over for the evening to do some more sewing. It was nice to have some company when my younger siblings went to bed. As you can tell from my instagram post, it was backwards progress for me!
I thought I would let all of you wonderful blog readers know that I have now joined Instagram! You can find me at SewCharacteristicallyYou. I have also added social media buttons on the side bar. So you can go straight to my Instragram from there or go to my Pinterest profile, or even send me an email.
My thanks to all of my wonderful readers. And a shout out to the BoyerSisters for being my first follower!
Can I say I'm in love? This beauty hails from the 1940's, and is a wonderful replacement of the storage that I had in my room.
I did the dangerous thing and went to a book store while on vacation. I haven't decided whether I came out the better or worse for it. I came back with less money, but more books, and now have the extremely challenging situation of trying to figure out how to fit them on my book case.
So this is what happens when a friend invites you over for a sleepover. You stay up late sewing and drinking real hot apple cider before you decide that you can't think straight and are making more mistakes than it is worth.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
