I've made a few t-shirts lately from my own pattern and have shared those pictures on social media, but I thought I would round them all up and post them here as well!
The pattern drafting paid off for me big time. I only needed to make a few alterations to get a basic sleeveless t-shirt pattern. I will now use this pattern to make a few t-shirts from the double brushed poly I bought. With a few alterations, I will make a more fancy t-shirt by including some ruching, and will also use it as the basis for the bodice of a few knit dresses.
I turned my woven sloper into a knit sloper and made a few modifications for the first try of my own t-shirt pattern. I would have started working on the top itself, except I had to wash the fabric.
So here is a sneak peek of what my current project plans are or other sewing related news.
I would like to hang this in my room during Christmas. I bought this panel at Hobby Lobby last year when I was visiting my Grandparents. I originally thought I wouldn't be able to get it done this Christmas. I didn't want to spend money on sewing projects but our new Joanns store was opening and I had a gift card! So I was able to get the batting, and I searched the stash for a suitable backing.
I thought I would share some designs that I hope to use with those fabrics I got recently. I hope to be able to get working on a project soon. I also have a few home decor projects to work on too. Cowhide, suede, and leather lacing are on the supplies list.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Oh, wait. Wrong story. This wasn't a long time ago nor in a galaxy far away. My last project was about two months ago and that feels like along time ago and a whole other world.
I know I have been a little neglecting of my blog of late. Unfortunately that is all my fault, but I can't promise that it will get any better. Actually, I think it will get worse. Life is going to be very hectic and crazy for me for the next few months so that I won't get very much done to feature on the blog. But I do have some sewing things going on right now that I can outline for you.
I haven't been completely lazy lately, although I didn't manage to get a post out Monday. I will use the fact that is a national holiday as my excuse.
I have finally gotten around to putting together a bodice moulage and without too much tears and anguish over fitting problems.
I have been working on my personal pattern slopers or pattern blocks starting with the bodice moulage. I want my clothes to fit well and I think the best way to do that is with custom patterns.
