A couple of months ago, I joined a sew-along. I thought it would be a good way to stretch my new skills. It was hosted by Seamstress Erin and I thought I’d share what I accomplished with you all.

The most tedious part of sewing: cutting out the pattern.

Wow, looks great! I love that pattern. I used the jacket part of that pattern to make a kimono-sleeve Chanel-style quilted jacket, and it turned out really well.

This is such a pretty blouse!

I’m always forgetting some small thing, like a zipper, buttons, or elastic that stops me right before the end… lol. O.o

Yea, my goal is to be more organized so that I can just finish a project in one go. But I always seem to neglect something, lol.

The blouse is lovely! I was also in that sew-along, but I wonder…Was there ever a “parade-post” with all the finished blouses?

lovely job – I tried to leave a comment on your website – but when you enter the wrong numbers in the box it erases your comment, just fyi. Your blog is great!

Thanks for the heads up. I’ve been trying different spam blockers and it’s been really frustrating finding the right one.

I love it!! You have inspired me to pull that pattern out and get started!

Right after I finish the dress on my form ;)

Thank you! I bought a lighter colored fabric to make another one. That’s how much I love it.
