Even though it doesn't look like it, I have been doing some garment sewing recently. And you will probably see more of these things in the future because it sometimes takes awhile behind the scenes to get them up and ready for you. (Especially this time of year...)
So, I am giving you a couple of sneak peeks and one finished garment.
(Yay for the finished one!)
First up is a sneak peek of Hannie's Christmas dress....
I am in love with brocade this season (you are going to see more soon!) and this one is especially lovely because it has gold and silver metallic threads woven in. I found it on clearance at Joann's eons ago and I wish I'd bought the whole bolt. I love it so much. And we even braved a 2 minute flat snow-photo-shoot that was loads of fun. Good thing we kept a blanket and a coat on until the last second. I think it was the fastest photo-shoot we have ever done.
And now a finished one!
This tunic is from Hayley's Norah Dress pattern that she sent over recently. Only I was a sewing late at night and completely put the collar on backwards....but then I kind of loved it so I left it. A bigger peter pan collar is always a cute thing. I should have taken a picture of the square back of the collar---it's really cute too. (Just know you will have to adjust the neckline....but now you know the collar can be reversed!)
I think she styled it for school just darling!
And one more sneak peek. For YEARS (really) I have been wanting to make a vintage wool hat (think Dick and Jane books) for winter. And every winter I don't do it.
Well, not this year. I have been working on a muslin and correcting my pattern and it's almost done! I am now to the digitizing part and sewing up my final hat.
Here is the wool for the final hat...
a rosy pinkish purple vintage wool that I found at an estate sale. I only have a little over a yard (hence all the muslins I have made) but I am ready to dive in and cut it today. I am planning on lining it with a quilting cotton, but I haven't decided which one yet.
So, now that you have seen my cutting table, I really want to know what is on yours?
Inquiring minds want to know....even if they are plans for something after the holidays.
