Time Just Flies.

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!
