It feels like forever since the last time I actually sewed something, even though I've had parts of two dresses cut out for weeks. I guess my sewing mojo has been a bit sleepy while the rest of my life was busy doing other things. I still have two unblogged summer garments to show you, though. One even fits the stashbusting challenge! Oh my.
It's a self-drafted babydoll top of the type that I really like wearing on hot summer days, either with a pair of leggings or a pair of shorts. The fabric is from last year's Girlcharlee order, a cotton jersey with next to no recovery but a cute polka-dot-and-flowers print.
The midriff band and "skirt" part are actually modified from my TNT self-drafted jersey dress pattern. The bodice part, I draped somewhat amateurishly on myself in front of the mirror. There are two versions, one with an overlap (as seen above) and one with either a middle seam or cut on fold (depending on how much fabric there is, as the dress below was refashioned from a - admittedly very big - tunic dress).
|can't believe I haven't taken a picture of it, yet|
- maybe soon. :)
So, I guess after those last vestiges of summer sewing, it's time to plan for autumn. Do you have any plans yet?
