2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

BLOGLIKECRAZY 2016 DAY 23: #Faye's Sewing Life...

...whether we sew as a creative outlet, to enhance our abilities and skills, or out of need, sewing is very therapeutic and rewarding. 
     I'm sure we will all agree - the benefits of knowing how to sew is well worth the challenges that present themselves from time to time.  Because we sew, we literately have ALMOST any garment we desire right at our fingertips.  It's a P-R-I-C-E-L-E-S-S skill we possess!
    • Whether its a time consuming tailored coat or jacket, a couture dress or skirt, or just some type of quick and easy instant gratification project.  We can have it all - garment wise.
    Today's make is a simple Navy Turtleneck knit shirt.  A turtleneck - Why? Because every Fall I tell myself that I need one.  Turtleneck knit shirts complete the Fall/Winter Eddie Bauer/Land's End Inspired part of my Fall/Winter casual wardrobe.  I could never seem to find a Navy Turtleneck in the stores whenever I looked, and just never got around to making one.   I have white, beige, chocolate brown, tan and black, I was missing Navy - but not any more.


     Though I have numerous turtle neck shirt patterns I used Kwik Sew's 1287 to fill my Navy shirt void.  Ok, on with the show.  I've got a lot of catching up to do, because it always seems I'm running behind in this sewing game of mine...

    1. That's great Ms. Faye! For some reason Navy is the color that designers forget about in several things. When I was working, I could never find a pair of good looking navy pumps! They were so hard to come by. You're so correct, the turtleneck should be a winter staple in everyone's wardrobe. I am currently working on the black one myself and can you believe that's something I did not have a lot of in my wardrobe? Seriously, I didn't but I am definitely going to rectify that this winter! Great post!

    2. Myra I know - they have completely forgotten one of my favorite colors NAVY. Turtlenecks are an easy make, nice and warm too.

    6. OMGoodness, Faye! I love turtlenecks! I can't wait to make some because the ones I have (RTW) are quite old. I agree with you that sewing is a PRICELESS skill. We are so blessed.
