I added 3 new Colette Patterns to my collection: Ceylon, Jasmine, and Iris. Someone else was destashing them, so I got them for a really great price. Win-Win.
I cut the bodice for my Lady Skater dress on Sunday and stitched most of it up last night. It's a teal/emerald/pacific/whatever blue-green interlock I picked up at JoAnn's. I'm basically in love with the way this t-shirt fits right now and I think I'll make up several more Lady Skaters sans skirt.
I could only find 3/8" clear elastic, so I just let it hang off the edge a little bit. I'm cool with that. I am trimming the extra as I go along.
I totally forgot I even had a serger when I went to sew on the neckband, but I did remember to serge the sleeves! I'm so happy I splurged on the serger. I'm quite happy with it. Speaking of: Do you know of any tried & true patterns or tutorials I can make using only my serger? I need to learn it better and I think that's the perfect way to do it.
More fabric from JoAnn's. This was on clearance. It's a little more than a yard and I think it's loads of fun. It's a bit juvenile, but I don't care! I'm going to try to make a fun shirt with it. I can pair it with a solid skirt and look adorable (which is exactly the look I go for some days!).
