I deemed this the weekend to end procrastination. Let me tell you why. I have a cabinet of fabric. Seriously, a whole cabinet. It's fabric I bought with the intention of making vintage dresses out of it. Well since I sold a lot of those patterns and don't wear vintage every day like I used to, it's been sitting in this cabinet for years. Yesterday I pulled it out and thought "It's just sitting there. No longer!" Therefore it's the weekend to end procrastination!
So I spent most of Friday night crawling around on the floor cutting out patterns. This was a poor choice. I can't crawl around on the floor like I used to. I also can't sew well into overtime like I used to. It's my fault really. I don't know when to quit and now my legs ache and my hands are sore. It's hurts to walk. No kidding. So I've been in bed watching movies with a bit of Halloween in them.
Friday night I made this skirt:
It's McCall's 6327 and I bought it the pattern to make the version in the bottom right but thought I would try out another version using the end procrastination fabric.
I think it turned out okay. It sits a little weird dunno why though. Maybe it's all in my head.
Friday night I also started these pants (finished them today):
From Butterick 5044:
I love these pants even though they are a bit transparent (that's white linen for you). Seriously if I had to live in a pair of pants it'd be these. They were super easy too.
Finally I made this:
I am nuts for Peter Pan collars and I love how trendy they are right now. I got this 1960s mail order pattern on eBay (brought to you by Fels soap!):
I love how this dress turned out. So cute! The fabric is quite stiff so the facing doesn't lay easy but maybe it will soften after a few washes.
I also cut out two others. I might make one tomorrow depending on how I feel but I have to take in the Halloween costume tomorrow.
I also still have a bunch of white linen and nothing to do with it. Any ideas? Skirt maybe?
