flummoxicated: (sewing retro)

This is based on a pattern (McCalls 5825, View C), though I did make the pockets contrasting rather than matching. The main fabric has such a strong pattern it would be hard to line up the pockets. Fortunately, plaid goes with everything.

Here's another project that I started at least a year ago. The day I found this fabric in the local quilt store I bought it, washed it, and cut out the skirt - I even marked the darts, which is a sewing task I loathe. And then? This just sat in the sewing zone. Until now. I put ric-rac along the waistline, with larger ric-rac around the hem. I've been wanting to try this particular style of applying ric-rac, which is a delightfully kitsch sewing trim. Yay, another finished project!

This fabric broke the record for least amount of time spent in my stash before getting made up into something. I used Vogue 8363 View A, with a couple of changes. The pattern calls for the skirt to be made of embroidered / lacy fabric with a scalloped edge, then you make a lining. I used this amazing fabric and skipped the lining as it didn't need it. Also I fudged with the pleated ruffle to maximize the pattern.

(More than) a few years ago, I took a quilt class. The name of the class was "Fabulous Fifteen" and, as you may have guessed, we learned 15 patterns - they were related, each week we selected one of the assorted patterns for that class. For a variety of reasons, I didn't finish a single quilt from the project. This unfinished-ness started bothering me, so I dug out the quilt parts and the directions and decided to do something about it...Here be details and pic )

Finished my professional writing paper! Finished my final exam! I'm trying to explain to my mom what I'm doing on LiveJournal! ("You have a journal?")

Thanks for all your good wishes on my last post! I really needed them. Still don't know if I passed that Italian exam.

I'm much exhausted.

Can I get a "DONE!" stamp?
