Pattern review is having a wardrobe contest and I’ve decided to join! It starts on April 1 and you have SIX weeks to sew EIGHT items. Your wardrobe is made up of 9 items total, the 8 you make and 1 that one can be either bought or premade. The wardrobe consists of 4 tops, 3 bottoms and 2 sewists choice. The choice items can be a cardi, jacket, pant, shirt, whatever.
I’m still deciding what will go in my wardobe exactly, but it’s going to be work based, heavy on the knits, and maybe with a fun jacket…all in the right colors. I’m really looking forward to doing this and my wardrobe could use a serious kickstart. I did participate in another contest on PR awhile ago, and it was quite fun. I enjoy reading about what the other ladies are making and how it’s going for them. With this much sewing in such a short time period, I probably won’t even have that much time to keep up! I’ve started a story board, but have a long way to go with it. At least I have a couple of weeks to plan!
I didn’t get to do any fun sewing today! Bah….I did boring sewing. I lengthened the hem on three pairs of work pants. I’m getting to be a pro at using the blind hem stitch on my machine. I never think it looks as good….but it’s passable and it sure is faster than doing them by hand! I may have to redo them because I think they need to be just about a 1/4 to a half inch shorter…It’s so hard to tell when you’re doing it by yourself! I figured I’d see how they work with my shoes that I’ll wear to work and then I’ll decide.
