Who's with me?
This week I am entertaining the mil and making tissue covers and desserts for 26 for a Ladies' Luncheon on Saturday.
Next week, ahhhhhh, next week I am doing two things for me!!
First, I am going to make a muslin of this pattern. I satrted another one several weeks ago, but I just didnt' feel like messing with yoke alterations and junk. Lazy daisy. I hope I look okay despite the fact that 'willowy' I am not. :-)
I have always enjoyed the look of a cute shirt dress and making this pattern will help me practice my darts and work on some classic tailoring skills. I will be using view C but I will probably make the longer sleeves since winter is a comin'. I will be using only one color too. Probably. Maybe.
It's been awhile since I've sewn an everyday item for myself...wish me luck!
Sorry about the pic, it's a tad blurry.
Project two: say it with me: burnt peanut red. I will paint my night table. It's a whole new skill set and I can't wait!! I have the paint, the primer and the tools..eeeeeeeeeeeeeee I am so excited to transform my bedroom from muted, mellow green tones to red and white cottage style!!!
I just might even make my own padded headboard....boo and ya!!!
