So far summer’s not been good for my sewing… between the nice weather and my real job, I’m not feeling like sitting inside in front of the sewing machine when I have free time! And I hate to hope for rainy days – we’ve already had too many of them. I suppose it just means that things will get completed at a slower pace…
I did finally get around to making the back for the modified bento box quilt (still no tutorial – sorry!). Hoping I’ll find some time this weekend to get it quilted.
I also started what I had hoped would be a quick project… a simple little summer dress using this great new Echino double gauze fabric. No luck.
I considered using the Socialite pattern again, but then thought maybe I should try out a different pattern. I should have known better. I don’t like patterns to begin with, so it’s probably a good idea to stick to those I’ve already tried and know I can follow! I don’t know exactly which pattern this is, but I can tell you I’m not a fan.
The back is ok, although pretty shapeless…
but the front leaves a bit to be desired (I don’t even want to show you!) and the view from the side – wow! not flattering. Not even a teeny tiny bit! I give it a thumbs down
(it was actually two thumbs down, but only one got pictured!) I’m going to try to make something wearable out of it – hopefully I have enough fabric left to make something a bit more flattering – a skirt, perhaps?
