fall-graphic

This week is Selfish Sewing Week. Where we mostly spend a lot of time sewing for others, this week you are encouraged to sew just for yourself! Check out the post on Imaginegnats’ website: http://imaginegnats.com/selfish-sewing-week-fall-2014-giveaway/

My plan for this week is to make blinds and curtains and cushions for the new studio,  and make a new tunic top from McCall’s M5050:

I also want to sew up the dress I have already cut up. Pattern is See & Sew B5870, a knit dress (my first!)
