Progress report on a shirt and skirt

Life is chugging along and I’m trying to keep up. Sewing projects are coming along, take a look.

Shirt is hemmed! Facings tacked and topstitched. The only things left are the cuffs on the sleeves and buttonholes and buttons. I have a week left to do this which should be more than enough time. I hope the cuffs turn out okay, for some reason, the cuffs are smaller than they should be…or the sleeve circumference is larger. Otherwise, I’ll just have to figure out how to “make it work!”

Check out this half finished crescent skirt! It isn’t pressed yet and there’s a lot more sewing to be done on the facing and zipper.

I love the pockets on this! Damn this skirt is turning out to be adorable. Cannot wait to wear it!!!

Unfortunate Hiatus

I had to take two weeks off working on my blog in order to focus on my personal life which has been…a struggle to say the least. Things are starting to feel better now and for the first week of my hiatus, I hadn’t done any sewing actually in order to start recovering. I had to take a few days off work too…This will be a short post just to show you my shirt project for class which is coming along nicely. I’m glad I can still sew right now because the first week was so difficult.

The facing has not been tacked down or sewn down yet but I’m really adoring the shirt! I didn’t think it’d be this cute.

The contrast white collar is pretty amazing. There will also be contrasting white cuffs on the sleeves. The sleeves went in so beautfiully…I also got a hair cut last week to help myself feel better. Hoping to get some pics up at some point.
