I have completed 2 dresses, 1 top, 1 UFO and a new pair of pj pants for myself.
I used a total of 10 yards of fabric!!
I bought only 5.5 yards. I used all of it for too!!
I made a satin top and 2 knit dresses all in one week. I just want to officially say I love sewing with knits. I know I said it before but I don't know why I was so nervous to sew with knits. It is so much easier than I was making it out to be. I think the teal knit dress is my favorite thing I made this past month. It fits so perfectly. I used M5974. This pattern is perfect for creating that hour glass shape!
I made the pj pants last night, which is why I have no pictures. But they are exactly the same as the ones I made for my sister for Christmas. I had some extra flannel left and I decided I didn't want to start an in-depth project on the last day of February. So, I did some instant gratification sewing. Besides who couldn't use more warm comfy flannel pj pants in the last weeks of winter? I have enough of the blue and green daisy flannel left that I may use it for part of a 1960's hippy costume I have to make for a client this month. More on that later though.
Saturday, I took a couple of hours to work on a UFO, which is a pair of men's renaissance pants. I had originally intended to make them for my brother to wear to the faire when we go. But now I think I may just put them in my Etsy shop.
This brings me to the next big news. I started my Etsy shop, The Five Petals, in February!! Woot. I have not posted any items just yet. But I hope to have some things completed in March to put up. Keep checking back to see what I have up for sale.
This month I have some goals to work on:
1. Get pieces completed for Etsy shop
2. Work on my jeans. I am now considering them a UFO, since they have been cut out since beginning of February.
3. Knit 3-4 scarves.
4. Make 2 more tops for my SWAP. I am planning on a OOP Project Runway 3535 in a navy with white stripes chiffon. The second will be New Look 6875. I am going to use a white knit for this.
5. Continue on the never ending, soul sucking quilt. I promise I will not be taking up any more in-depth quilting projects once this is over.
