...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 FALLEQUINOX doesn't officially happen until
September 22, 10:21 a.m. EDT. That means there are 53 more days of:
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...
