Second Quarter Review – 2017July 5, 2017 / byCarolyn (Diary of a Sewing Fanatic) / Categories : Feeds
Honestly, I'm kinda amazed at that amount but in the past I didn't make a lot of tops, I bought RTW. Sewing tops/blouses/shirts are quicker makes, at least for me, and they add up quickly. Also it's finally gotten warm here, so I will be turning out more dresses, which take a little longer to sew than tops.
I have a few trips planned this summer, so while I've gained 2.5 day weekends, I will be missing the sewing cave during some of those weekends. So here is this quarter's sewn garments breakdown.

Rose floral button down shirt

- Black & White color blocked tee
- Beige Lace knit top with peplum top
- Gray splattered knit top with flare sleeves

I thought I used to sew a lot before. Though I do have much more time now and I tend to fill it sewing in the cave! My current sewing list has 13 items on it. I'm sewing from the list now, but who knows what will inspire me in the future, and what creative flights of fancy I will take.
Finally, "Thank You!" for following along on my creative endeavors, for talking back in my Question of the Day posts, for leaving comments on my outfits and for following me both here and on Instagram. It is truly appreciated!
...as always more later!

There’s little problem with it if the line is straight or curvy. But what if your area has corners or […]read more
