Lots in progress and about to be underway around here. I certainly didn't want to miss the chance to announce that the Literary Sewing Circle is back for our spring session! We will be launching this round next Friday, April 2 -- stay tuned for the title announcement. I'll give you a small hint. It's a genre we haven't tackled together yet...think speculative fiction...and perhaps something translated... The initial post with the title and schedule for the session will appear here in a week.
But no finished projects to share today. This week I've been working on My Body Model sketches, cutting out a couple of things, and giving a little clean up to my sewing space!
I do have a handful of projects in the queue, and they are all bright & cheery colours just right for Spring. First up is Butterick 6655 in this floral linen blend -- it's about half done and I'm sure it'll be finished shortly. I had to make a few sizing changes on this but nothing too difficult.
Next I'll be working on the Penrose Blouse. It's cut out and set aside as my next project to sew up. I used a lightweight cotton curtain that I thrifted since I thought it would be perfect for this summery top.
I also just received 2 yards of this lovely viscose jersey from Sew Much Fabric -- another of my prizes from my recent #BHMPatternDesigners challenge win. I have to prewash it and then it will be made into a jersey dress. I have some pattern ideas but haven't decided on which one exactly, not yet. Suggestions welcome :)
And I'm also starting on a top-secret pattern testing project this weekend, so I'll have lots to keep me busy over the next few weeks. Although I hope you'll join me in some bookish sewing starting next Friday!
