STUCK - IN THE SEWING ROOM...

not that I can't get out, but this weekend I just found myself in a precarious place that I call stuck. I had a really hard time trying to decide on what my next project was going to be. Mind you, this doesn't happen often because it just works out that I have so many sewing projects planned that the process usually flows pretty smoothly. During my last frenzy I cut out three tops and a dress. The results of that cutting frenzy has kept me busy for two weeks - I put the finishing touches on this Butterick wrap dress on Friday night.

So by Saturday I needed to make a decision on my next sewing projects, and just couldn't come up with any ideas. I finally decided to give New Look 6936 a try. I was able to get this dress done in a day as it went together easily and without a hitch.

The Spring Month of Tops Sew-a-long is in its final week. Initially, I committed to making 4 tops - but I was able to get 5 done. I'm now thinking that I might be able to squeeze in one more top this week. So I cut it out today and hope to complete it by the weekend....

  1. I have lots of next projects, I just don't seem to have as much time. It is sort-of like the kid whose eyes are bigger than his stomach! I am trying to phrase it to fit my sewing life, but it just isn't working for me.

  2. Cute dresses! I have so many projects going on that I get stuck on which one to complete and work on... or start a new one. I've been working on 2 tops, but I don't think I can get both of them completed this week... hopefully at least one. Have an awesome week! :)

  3. I particularly like your blue and white floral dress. It looks like a good pattern too. I just realised that I sewed 2 tops this month. I could add them to your Spring top month!

  14. First of all, I totally love all the dresses you are making right now. I am jealous. Second of all, don't worry about my package. I have plenty on my plate. Third, did you get the one I sent you? The seam allowances are 1/4 inch. What? Have a great day!
