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.
Help! I have a few design ideas floating around, and I am trying to decide what I should do.
I made mini mock-ups in doll size to get a better feel for how a design would work.
Okay, so it is Tuesday instead of Monday. My excuses for being late are that I was gone part of the weekend, Sunday I was playing with my new smart phone, and Monday and today I had to complete the project to even have something to post about.
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.
It is about time! I am ready to begin filling in a list of pattern testers for my skirt pattern. It will likely be a few weeks before I am ready with the pattern, instructions, and fabric amounts, but I want to get an idea of who might be interested.
Oh, dear, all is quiet on the blogging front lately. My apologies. I hope to be back up and predictable now. This coming right after I was hoping to go to three posts a week. :)
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.
I have the first pattern draft of this skirt sketch of mine done. I am ready to do my first complete test of the pattern. I still have a lot to do before the pattern is ready to sell. I can't help but look through my other sketches and dream about what I want to work on next both in pattern drafting and projects.
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.
