It’s time for the Sew Our Stash update for August!!
I am so glad that Marissa from Rae Gun Ramblings and I are doing this challenge! It really forces me to get out of my comfort (lazy) zone and sew something for myself! And every month I have grand plans to sew up a bunch of stuff, and every month I get so caught up in other things that I don’t get as much done as I want! But the monthly posts force me to at least do something. Better than nothing right?!
So here’s what I have for the month! I decided to dive into the indie pattern companies this month and I’m so happy with both these pattern makers!
I started off with the Kimono Dress from Pattern Runway.
I fell in love with this fabric when we had Fabric Weekend in LA back in May. I knew I wanted to make a simple dress that would really show off the pretty fabric. This pattern is perfect!
The pattern is super simple to sew and it goes together really fast. The sizing was good also!
I also made up what is maybe my new favorite top!
It’s the Datura Top from Deer&Doe and I am soooooo in love. It’s fast, easy, and it has a sweet little collar. What’s not to love??
I think I’m going to make up a bunch of these with different variations. They have a cute style with little cut out’s at the neck. I might try different hems and for sure mix up different prints. It’s going to be a staple, I can tell.
Plus I can put a cute sweater of this and wear it year round. Win win!
But look at me being all brave and taking a photo without a sweater. ;)
Not too bad for the month – a new top and new dress!
I have some fun things already in the works for next month too! I’m soooo excited about them.
Make sure you head over to Marissa’s place and check out what she made this month!! You will love it!
So what do you think?
Just a little note: Please be kind in your comments or choose not to comment if you can’t. I fully realize that I am not super young or super-model svelte. Well meaning but rude comments pointing out those obvious facts and giving advice about how to rectify the situation will be deleted. And I will be irritated with you all day. And possibly badmouth you to my family. Thanks! Big kisses and hugs to all the rest of you. ;)
