Hello lovely people.
I've also been working on some stories and some other sewing projects that are involved with the costuming side job I do. It looks as if that is going to branch into cosplay, as I know a LOT of cosplayers that seem to float in my circles.
But sewing vintage and my wardrobe is still at the front. And with that I must say how excited I am with this year's Make and Mend.
I got this group of linen feed sacks online for $20 a couple weeks ago. I'd been looking for some fabric of a decent weight to make some great skirts with the flush out my wardrobe. These are perfect. I want some solid color skirts, and I plan on dyeing these once they are made. Perfect.
Isn't this tweed-ish linen fantastic!?
I got started with it already :p
Also, I have this great tiki-esque shirt I got some years ago that never really fit too well, but I love the style. I'm going to make a pattern out of this and whip up a few shirts to, again, fill in my wardrobe. It fits too tight beneath the arms, but I just LOVE that neckline. Mmmm, boatneck. It will make a great pattern and I get to look through my fab buttons and vintage fabrics to see what would make good shirts. Squeee!
I also have some denim that's sitting in my closet that I really need to make some clamdiggers.
I also plan on getting through my huge bucket of alteration and old projects and chip down that cluster as much as I can! -whew-
So as you can see, so much to be excited for. For those that are going to do the sew along, I've posted a few banners in the new Pinterest board I made.
I'd also LOVE to hear what you all are planning on working on. I love Make and Mend, I really do. Okay! Have a great day!
