must be paper writing time…
I’m in the thick of it. But that doesn’t mean I’m not taking little mini-breaks to dream about all the other things I might be doing besides writing. Top of my list since being inspired by Made by Rae’s “Spring Top Week” is sewing for warmer weather. One more week and I can actually get to it! Here are a few ideas I’ve been gathering to fuel my imagination and sewing frenzy-to-come.
Refashion men’s shirt- clevergirl.org has lots of refashioned men’s dress shirts as cute tops and a-little-too-short-for-me dresses. This link goes to my favorite one. I love this because it is not only inexpensive (oh so important), but it repurposes meaning less production in general.
Victorian Ruffles- Made by Rae is helping fuel my inspiration in more ways than one. Love this top, although I won’t be making it so generous in the belly section. I have to say, I never had maternity clothes this cute. Ah well…that stage is past.
“Adult”erated Sundress- I really liked this children’s sundress I found at Habitual, but thinking it is more me than my daughter. Considering enlarging it to my size as a dress, or considering it as tunic/top as one commenter mentions. Either way looks like an easy but satisfying afternoon sew.
