What do you do when you find yourself with a lot of annual leave left and three months to take it? Book a sewcation, of course! The first week of July sees me staying at home, trying to work through as much of my self made holiday/summer wardrobe as possible. Why do I always seem to be short of summer clothes?
I've spent the last couple of weeks planning and preparing. The preparation hasn't gone as well as I would have liked - I've been distracted by a gorgeous white eyelet. All together now, "Mmm, eyelet". However, a number of projects are cut out and a few toiles have been made or are ready to be stitched. I've probably lined up too many projects but as a number of them are repeat patterns, I like to think I'll get them all completed before August. So what's on the list?
Vintage Shirt Dress, white eyelet underlined in blue cotton
Moss Skirt, emerald twill
Gabriola skirts, in paisley viscose (to be stitched assembly line style to save time)
Sleeveless Granville, in Art Factory cotton
Georgia dress, in duckegg cotton viscose
Kim dress, in liberty silk
Belcarra, in liberty lawn
I'm rather excited about the prospect of getting all of these projects completed although I'm sure the reality will bite when at least one project doesn't behave itself. The Vintage Shirt Dress is already in progress and I'm hoping I can clear through my household chores quickly today to get back to it. I'll be posting my progress on Instagram of all of these projects if you fancy following along. What's currently on your sewing table or what projects are you lining up?
