I also have a big project for the month of April -
Here are my desired sewing projects. Of course, these can be outranked at any time if I see something else that's awesome. I'm trying not to go fabric shopping until May 1 at least. (Let the record reflect that as this post was in draft mode...I spent $80 at Fabric Mart. I bought lots of fabric for work clothes (22 ish yards) and am now on a self-imposed fabric fast until Hopefully by May I'll be buying a serger!! I'm thinking Brother 1034D - it seems to be a popular one.
*Simplicity 2892 in a luscious teal colored tropical weight rayon. I'm doing view C. Can't wait!
*McCall's 6319 (oop) view A in this cool printed knit I scored at SR Harris (for about $11)
*Butterick 5493, view C, in my knit scored in my mystery bundle from FM. That'll make it a <$1 shirt.
*Sewaholic Thurlow shorts - Hopefully a wearable muslin - again fabric from the FM mystery bundle. It's a suiting fabric in an olive green.
*Simplicity 2512 view B in (GASP!) quilting cotton. But I love the pattern and the color of the fabric. It's going to look cute with an ivory top and gold belt :)
*New Look 6189 view A in this printed, denim-like linen-like fabric from Hancock Fabrics. It's not denim or linen but I *like* it. So that's that, right?
I want to make this peplum top! But I want to use this denim for like 3 things! LOL!!! I would love to make Simplicity 1887 or Thurlow (if successful) shorts in this denim. I would love to make McCall's 3830 pencil skirt in this denim. I could just buy more denim...right?
I'm thinking I need a lighter weight denim for the peplum. This stuff is sort of heavy. I need to learn how to decipher the weight of denim...but it feels almost as heavy as the Rock & Republic denim I bought from SR Harris. But it has a bit of lycra/spandex to it...I'd also love to make this peplum top with an exposed zipper - I'm getting too fancy for myself!
