On Saturday, I decided to play around with making a dress out of Kwik-Sew 3616. It was turning out really cute until I realized that I’d forgotten to add seam allowances to the skirt (Doh!). Let’s just say it fits but it’s unflatteringly snug. Well, we all make mistakes and this one isn’t tragic (although this Gorgeous Fabrics fabric is so perfect for work!). I’ll just cut it back into a top and try again.
I’m also working on my quilt. I cut the borders and am now playing around with extending the circles into it. After looking at the photos, I think it needs a narrow black inner border in addition to the black binding that I have planned. It needs a frame to separate the circles from the border so that it doesn’t feel like nothing more than a sea of batik. What do you think?
And, lastly, isn’t every day better when you buy yourself a little sewing present? I know mine is! I learned of the Spadea Sewing Book from Barbara at Cat Fur Studio and wondered why I didn’t have it! Now, through the power of the internet, one landed on my doorstep today as if by magic.
