I can’t believe my last post was on December 1st. I’ve been a bad blogger. I have been sewing, but I’m just not very happy with how my projects are turning out. This is not uncommon for winter sewing for me.
First up is Vogue 1275, which is from Sandra Betzina’s “Today’s Fit” line for Vogue. As with my first Today’s Fit top, the fit was spot on. However, I’m not quite sure about the construction. The neckline and front band was quite fiddly. I haven’t decided if it’s enough to put me off sewing it again.
Next is my most recently completed project, another Simplicity 2601. I was really happy with my first one but this one, not so much. My biggest issue with it is that the plaid was not straight. When I look at the picture, all I can see is the wonky plaid. I may have to give up on plaid flannel shirting as this has happened to me 3 times in the last 2 years. The blouse is ok, but I think the design works better in the crisp men’s shirting that I used last time.
Next, we have works in progress.
First, a muslin for McCall’s 6139
And on the knitting needles:
