2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

July 31, 2016

SHOULDERS UP, IT'S STILL SUMMER...

...Every year I start out with such grandiose sewing plans for summer, but never, ever seem to get around to making everything on my list.  Now that the school year has started (last Friday, July 29th), it seems that summer has whispered bye bye.  But, thankfully the start of the school year does not dictate the end of summer when one lives in Georgia.  Tomorrow is August 1st, and the FALL EQUINOX doesn't officially happen until September 22, 10:21 a.m. EDT.  That means there are 53 more days of:
  • summer temperatures,
  •  surprise summer thunder storms that God sends us to keep us from burning up,
  •  AND SUMMER SEWING if I so choose.
 Isn't it wonderful!  Just enough time to play around with McCall's 6558 some more.
A bit more off shoulder love, revised as a tunic this time.  I used a nice challis fabric (gifted from Ebony), joined the bodice and skirt pattern pieces, eliminated the elastic at waist, and lengthened the skirt.  I love the print and drape of this fabric.
Who knows, another version of this pattern just might show up before summer's end...

  4. I started working with my 9 different colors of gauze last weekend, and finished 4 dresses last weekend, 2 this weekend with another cut out. It's been in the 80s here, which I know is temperate in Georgia, but is news-worthy right outside Scranton (which is always 10 degrees hotter than here in the 'burbs). I love breezy summer dresses, and I love your pattern. Your tunic is so pretty!

    1. I'll bet those dresses are so cute. You must show them. I've been through Scranton numerous times on the way to Elmira, New York.
