WIP Wednesday

I’ve been working on a few projects this last week.

One of my goals for the year was to create a garment I wouldn’t be embarrassed to wear in public. I made one earlier this year, but let’s just say the fit wasn’t great. (It was both too tight and too lose all at the same time. And it was a schoolhouse tunic. I’m not even sure how that’s possible.)


However, this last week, Rachael @ imagine gnats asked me (along with others) to beta test her Bess top. With only two pieces and a fit that didn’t even require adjustments, I figured I could give it a shot. Plus it looked like a super cute pattern! I grabbed some Nordika and Art Gallery Solid in Spiceberry and was able to make this tunic version by myself in an afternoon. I love it! I also have no idea how to take a picture of a person modeling a garment that doesn’t look ridiculous, so maybe that should go on my list for next year. Maybe we should have brought the fan outside to blow back the hair..


In non-garment news, I am contributing to a group project where we were asked to create a block that represented our blog. I spent a long time totally waffling on what to do and hit a creative block. I was chatting with Sarah @ {no} hats in the house, and she asked why I didn’t just do a paint chip block? Definitely a real “duh!” moment for me. So I whipped up this palette builder block. It’s a 6″ (6.5″ unfinished block), so yes, that sashing is 1/4″. FUN! (Seriously!)


I’m also making progress on my Sew Sew Modern swap item. I know I want to do a pillow, and I’ll be doing the square in a square design, in “rainbow minus purple” heather ross and friends. I’ve started work on it, but haven’t made a ton of progress yet. I hope to have the front done by the end of the weekend, though!
