I've been down the past few days, and it was no fun! I didn't realize just how much I really depend on the internet until I couldn't get on. It was miserable! But I have been sewing and have three finished projects to boot:
My favorite TNT t-shirt pattern - New Look 6735. Isn't this the most gorgeous knit you've ever seen? I love it so much that I stopped several times during the construction to give it a little hug. I purchased this from my friend Ebony the end of last summer and it's so soft and just the best knit ever. I'm currently working on a dress from this very same fabric - I thank God for Ebony (and KEITH for the internet).
New Look 6901 surplice top that has a little ruching on the side. I've tried this type top several times with no success - others have gapped really bad in the front. This time I prayed and took a chance on yet another version - AND IT WORKED OUT FINE! This is another Ebony fabric that you will be seeing again in an upcoming dress.
Finally, I used New Look 6940 with my Vogue Expo fabric. The top looked much better on the pattern envelope, and I wish I had selected another pattern for my fabric. Hind sight is 20/20, right? The top is too low cut - Thank God for safety pins, ad has too much ease overall. It is however wearable.
Not a bad sewing week after all.......
