My KCWC haul
I know it may have seemed like I was a KCWC fail, showing no finished clothing that I had made for Maya over the sewing week, 8 - 14 October 2012.
The truth is I am a one project at a time person - or one machine project and one hand sewing/knitting project on the go at any one time. My machine projects have been for the past few months projects-that-cannot-be-revealed! About seven of them.
During the week I focused on tracing and cutting out Maya's Summer and Autumn wardrobe, right down to ironing on the interfacing. I have this lovely pile of projects that I am continuing to add to, and having this all ready to go will take so much pressure off the upcoming trip to Sewjourn.
We have - Oliver + S picnic shorts, Oliver + S Seashore Sundress, 2 x Oliver + S Sailboat Skirts, Oliver + S Croquet Top, shorts refashioned from a t-shirt, and legging and dress from a McCalls pattern. I also finished the second bolero.
It feels great to know that the fabric all came from my stash and that sewing these patterns before Maya grows out of them. I will also have a lot to blog in the next few weeks :)
