Despite going ‘off plan’ with several projects in September I did manage to complete some of the items on my list.
The Pink floral print jersey ‘Elmira’ ballet wrap cardigan was completed and with the remnant of fabric I made a co-ordinating tee shirt. The Dark print viscose jersey for Kwiksew 3915 for a friend was also completed and again another tee shirt for me from the remnant of fabric. I did not get to the Cobra corsage lawn dress but I have today washed the plain Black lawn that I will use for a lining so maybe that project will finally make it to completion. The other dress using a Lewis & Irene cotton print, ‘Our friends in the garden’, was started in September but was not completed until earlier this week. But still with tights and a cardigan it should get some airings until the really cold weather sets in.
Whilst I have made several samples for the classes to be taught in the Autumn and Winter terms, there are still a few outstanding plus the workbooks to be prepared. The final outstanding item from September is the Sewing print linen-look seat covering. That should not take too long as is basically a shape with elasticated hem so hopefully that will also make it to completion in October.
Now, let’s think about sewing plans for the coming month, the list looks like this:-
- Cover for sewing room chair in sewing theme linen-look
- Samples for classes – Coat hanger peg bag, Scissors Case, Dresden Plate Blocks (2) and Zip top Window Project Bags.
- Cobra and Corsage print cotton lawn dress. Style as yet undecided.
- Cobra and Corsage print luxury scuba top with asymmetrical hem & cowl collar. Fabric just arrived from Sewisfaction. Absolutely yummy!
5. Paisley print jersey trapeze tunic with cowl collar. Fabric just arrived from eBay. Fine weight with a good drape.
- Coat with waterfall collar. This is probably too much considering that we are already 7 days into the month but still it is good to have targets!
