This weekend I attended a sewing course here in the small town where I live. I meat some fantastic and inspiring people. I started sewing a blouse for spring and a casual dress for my daughter. I also cut many meters of bias binding. I hope to meet the people from the course again soon. It’s really fun sewing together with others.
I have finished my first project in 2018. It’s the ‘Frill Top‘ from ‘Love Sewing’ magazine. You can download the pattern, but you need the magazine for the instructions and I don’t have that. So I have made some mistakes… I sewed the frill with the shoulder seem. Which felt logical at the time since I made the frills double because it didn’t look so good with the fabric’s backside showing. Maybe the fabric is not the right choise for this project because it is quite heavy… Still I like it! And I love the ruffles! And I’m thinking of making a lighter version for summer.
Hopefully All the wrong choises are going away and the seem ripper tool is coming out in the #2018RTWfast challenge. It’s time for some planning and improving of my sewing skills.
