Today I bring you the small success of my self-challenge to finish some of the projects which have been haunting my sewing table for a while. As much as I would like to say that I got everything done that I had planned, that would not be quite so accurate.
I had plans to make a replica of a maxi skirt I bought from Target and have absolutely worn to death, but I decided on a yoga waistband rather than a casing. The result is seriously some secret pajamas. I bought this fabric from Perelanda pre-orders who brought it back from Singapore. It’s got some serious stretchy comfy goodness going on. (Picture will be added later in a more descriptive post).
I finished another pair of Coachella shorts from Striped Swallow with the notable difference of loving these ones because I sewed through the elastic and now it doesn’t twist and turn in the casing. They’re made of a super silky cotton poly blend and I love them.
What I did not finish:
1 x shirt where I had stitched the bias trim around the arms and neckline down really well, on the wrong side of the fabric. That project will take a lot of alcohol to ever complete.
1 x skirt which had the worst fabric to work with. My eyes twitch even thinking about this fabric and how horrible it was. I did, however make some Lucy shorts (Made for Mermaids) from the same fabric (and they’ve fallen apart). Boo.
Here’s a photo gallery of the challenge round up:
