I'm looking through what I've done this year as we pack up to leave this little sublet.
One new thing has been some simple sewing.
I chose the Esme Tunic from Lotta Jansdotter's Everyday Style, as a first top :
When the bobbin mysteriously changes to a new color.
The top went together so smoothly and easily.
I've added side vests at the hem.
And used some of the yards of bias binding that I cut way too much of.
Since I planned to Indigo dye it, I thought it would be a perfect match.
It was. I did some hand sewn finishing -
And now have a new favorite top.
I also revived one of my very favorite washcloths in the vat,
this is a mini of the Peeko pattern.
One good tunic deserved another, here I've repositioned the dart from
-a bit too high on the side-
to the shoulder, which is better for my shape.
Another project has been a few jersey skirts. The pattern is from
Here I'm using some cast off extra large tees for the fabric.
I highly recommend both books (all of the Alabama Studio books, in fact).
Add a little stitching to your life.
As always, my Instagram account is a nearly daily mini blog of what
inspires and delights me, follow along!
