GOAL MET - PROJECTS FINISHED...

...it's been an awful long time since I've been motivated enough to spend the ENTIRE weekend sewing.  I literally had to tear my self from the sewing room last evening.  I made these three  knit tops for my daughter.
Simplicity 1916 and Vogue 8881

Butterick 6065  
I love the Butterick 6065 tank; what's not to love - great fit, cute design, 3 easy pattern pieces. I made this pattern once before for myself but now I want another one for me from this fabric.  After making both tanks there will still enough fabric left for another project.  Might as well use ever drop of this long stashed jersey knit purchased on one of my NYC trips at Metro Textiles a few years ago.

I was even able to squeeze in a fourth top during my KNIT TOP FRENZY for my sweetie but it needs just a little more work before I can actually call it done.  I'll tell you - weekend sewing is truly PRICELESS!!!

  2. I LONG for a time when I could have a weekend to sew. I'm now rearing a just turned five year-old boy (some special needs) and I think it's going to be a while yet. I miss it so much!

  9. Lucky daughter! Sometimes I feel more motivated if I'm sewing for someone else. Not that they know or feel entitled, but it makes me happy to give something pretty to a loved one.
