So after I finished my Wiksten Tank Top I was motivated to try more sewing for me and I even had a vision for my second Spring Top Sewalong entry. I finally got around to sewing it, and just barely made the deadline. And you know what? I don’t like it.
I’m not going to get into the details, but I’m pretty sad that I wasted so much time on it. I threw it in the pool just for the hell of it, but I doubt I’ll ever wear it. Does anyone recognize it? Yup, it’s the adult version of the top I made Yuki for my signature look for the PR&P Sewalong last season. I think I’m better off sticking with kids clothes.
And speaking of kids clothes, KCWC is here!!
This is my first time participating but I’m super excited. I LOVE that so many people in the online sewing community are participating. I see almost all my favorite bloggers talking about it and I haven’t seen that kind of across-the-board participation in other events.
So I’ve got my list of projects – 1 big one and several small ones – we’ll see what I actually finish. And despite a hectic weekend, I was able to get some prep done. No thanks to this little “helper.”
I haven’t quite figured out my schedule or plan of attack. Do I spend a little time each day working on the big project plus one small project? Or should I try and tackle the big project first and then get done what I can after that?
I’m thinking I’ll go with the former, because I’d like to have at least one or two things done by the end of the week and who knows if I can even complete this big project in one week. The big project, in case you’re wondering, is the Jumprope Dress by Oliver + S. My first O+S pattern! Can’t wait.
And I’m going to try to take pictures and blog about it as I go, but man, it’s feeling pretty ambitious.
Here’s a sneak peek of my fabrics. Pretty drab for spring kids clothes huh? What’s up with that!?
Sooooooo . . . what are you going to be sewing?? What’s your plan of attack?
