I had great plans for the 3 day weekend. Lots of sewing was to occur. Somehow, life intruded. How does that phrase go? The best laid plans of mice and men, or woman, in my case. Though really, has anyone ever heard of mice making plans?
I did complete two super simple tank tops that I had cut out last week. They are both based on my favorite Kwik Sew patterns, 2694 for the black and white number, and 3115 for the little purple skulls.
They are both finished with fold-over elastic, instead of a facing or binding. Simple. Quick. Easy!
The black & white version has silver elastic, which gives a bit of sparkle to the whole thing. Both fabrics are from Fabric.com though they are no longer available. The black and white was aged for at least 2 years, and the little skulls arrived back in June.
I also did some cutting out and prep work for a sewing workshop next Saturday. Our ASG Guild is having Mary Lou Rankin of Park Bench Patterns teach for the day. She will be doing a sit and sew with her pattern line. Basically we arrive with any of her patterns cut out, and she will help us fit and alter them to suit.
I’ve had this pattern for ages, so decided it was time to see how it shapes up. I plan on using a tencel / linen blend for the sides and facings, and a bright batik for the center front and back panels. Stay tuned!
