Here's what I've been doing lately...

Well, it's been slow going lately in the sewing arena. It's been a busy but fun Summer. I was able to get this top done last week - New Look #6816 View A, well actually it's a trial run for a couple tops I wanted to make from this pattern:


I like this pattern a lot but still haven't decided if I want to make a couple tops from it, there are so many other patterns I'd like to try. We'll see what I decide on this and I'll show/tell you later what I've decided.

This skirt pattern is what's next on my list McCall's #5523, view A.


I love this skirt and the fabric is perfect. The fabric is an unknown polyester blend but it has the perfect drape for this pattern. I'll post pictures as I'm working on this project. I hope to get it done this week because I'm having surgery on my right hand (carpal tunnel) in a couple week and won't be able to sew for a week or two after. I had surgery on my left hand back in Feb. this year and it made quite a difference, my left hand is much better. So, I'm looking forward to getting it over with. Hopefully after my surgery I'll get a lot more sewing done.

I love that top pattern! You could cut two out at once and save a little time. It looks versatile--I say, go for making more than one!
