Sewing weekend extravaganza!!

Once again I disappeared from the face of the planet! But I am back and planning to have a sewing-fest of a weekend!

I have only a couple of weeks before I go on holiday (YIPPEE!!) so I have lots of holiday sewing to do and I also promised my aunty that I would make her a couple of skirts and dresses for summer – have I even started them?? No! Of course not! We will be seeing her when we are on holidays so really should have it all done in two weeks…hmmm…feasible!

I am at my Mum’s this weekend and when I packed up the fabric I would need I may have gone overboard!

Sewing Extravaganza

Yes I’m sure I can use all that up this weekend! The pile is made up of (starting from the bottom) Jersey, Stretch cottons x3, neon cotton, chiffon, cotton lawn, jersey, jaquard, ¬†crepe, cotton, chambray, stretch jersey x3.

I have made a pinterest board with some of the things I plan (read ‘hope’) to make for the summer!!

I haven’t been totally lazy on the sewing front since my last post, I’ve been trying a few t-shirts patterns in an effort to find the best pattern for me. Here are the efforts so far:


From top left clockwise; Grainline Scout T, Emmeline T, Dolores Batwing Top, Renfrew.

I will do a separate post on these tops soon!

What about you? Any summer sewing plans? On tight deadlines?
