January 27, 2014


So, I realize that my last post was just fabric porn, and that despite my best efforts to reduce my stash it keeps growing. I swear I have no time to do any selfish sewing right now! School has been keeping me crazy busy.
Exhibit A
This is a "muslin" of a blouse I drafted in drafting class. So far this semester, we've had to draft and sew up a muslin of 3 blouses. 3 blouses, 3 weeks. Plus homework for all my other classes. Clearly no time for me sewing.

I use the term muslin fairly loosely in the above paragraph. We are pretty fortunate to have a prof who told us to use fabric scarps we have laying around rather than going out and buying muslin because we're all students and we're broke. And since I have a shit ton of fabric kicking around, this helps me to destash at least a little bit...

Now that muslin sewing is on hiatus for a couple weeks, maybe I can squeeze in some personal sewing in my few minutes of spare time....well, as soon as I finish these anyway:
Since we have our first real winter in years and I've apparently lost all my mittens, I am knitting myself a pair of How Cold Is It? mittens by Drunk Girl Designs. They sum up my feelings on the sub-zero temps we've been having quite nicely.

Nothing much else to report, I'm afraid, so for now I'll just leave you with a pic of my new hair.
Until soon :)

Fabric Porn

I may have gone a little overboard while fabric shopping recently....I stopped into a local fabric shop to get interfacing for a school assignment and ended up with this:
There were actually a few more pieces that made it home with me, but as they are things like black denim, and lining, and the like, I figured there was no need to photograph them ;)

I'm hoping to have something to show off for you guys soon!
