I’m finally going to learn to sew! Well, clothes at least, from a pattern and everything! My M.I.L. had given me sewing lessons as her Christmas gift last year and yesterday was the first. I had wanted to do pajamas but ended up unable to find the pattern I thought I had and wasn’t sure if the fabric’d suit anyway so I opted to make a tunic-type shirt instead.
We didn’t get as far as I would have liked due to various circumstances (not least of which being the fabric had languished so long in my stash it needed washing again), but we picked up some contrast color to the linen I already had.
Isn’t it pretty? And yes, it sparkles 😉 You can also see few the pattern pieces that I got cut out. Confession: I was nervous just cutting out the paper pieces of the pattern, but a nervous wreck cutting out the bit of the sparkly fabric for the front.
While we were at Joann’s, we went looking for fabric for pajamas, in case we found some that I liked. Why oh why must there be so. Much. Pink?!? I’m so not a pink girl, but it seemed as if all the prints I liked were on pink backgrounds. If something wasn’t pink, it was usually way too busy or too baby-ish. Needless to say, we walked out sans fabric for that. Will have to keeping looking, I guess.
