Have I mentioned before that I love to sew? Just in case you didn't remember, here are a few projects I finished recently. The first one is a wrap blouse that was initially a dress. I cut it out a while back and finally finished it up yesterday. The pattern I used is New Look 6674, view A. I made the wrap dress thinking that I would just have to wait to wear it until next spring/summer, but when I saw how cute it turned out, I just knew I wouldn't be able to wait to wear it. I ended up cutting off about 13 inches from the skirt and making it into a blouse instead. I really love the gathered sleeves on this pattern!
Next up, I made a bag out of some material I've had earmarked to make a large tote out of for a while. The lining is a vintage sheet, and the straps are leather. I just kind of made the pattern up as I went along on this one. I really love how it ended up but I think if I were to make another, I would add some interfacing to give it some form. It looks great on my shoulder but when I put it down, it is just a big puddle of a bag.
You may remember this next one from here. This one started out as a little black dress. Once I tried it on, I realized it looked more like a moo moo on me than a "little black dress". I had to plan B it, and salvage it into a nighty. I added the ruffle at the bottom and it really is fabulous now. My husband even said it looks cute without my prompting, so THAT ladies, is a huge success in my book!
