going strong with selfish sewing week

on September 25, 2013

selfish sewing week is going well.

day 1, i (finally) finished my third shearwater kaftan. i must say i absolutely love this pattern & will be starting on #4 shortly.

day 2, i cut out some patterns that i’ll start putting together later today. and i made my first hemlock tee (a grainline pattern)…the weather is still a little too warm for wearing it yet, but i can already tell that i’m going to love the finished top & have found yet another pattern that i will make multiple versions of :)! oh, i also started work on the wiksten tank dress version…much as i love the tank (i made 9 over the summer!) i wanted to see if i would love the dress length, too.

day 3 (today), i’m finishing up the wiksten tank dress, taking pictures of the tops i’ve finished so far, starting on the wearable muslin washi tunic & the grainline scout tee.

and there’s lots to still get to so, with all that said…here are the recent pics, with a couple of our fat cat simon thrown in just because, & i’m off to sew up some more clothes to get me through this week!

love this pattern!

love this pattern!

 

can't wait to wear this...in all its wrinkly glory ;)
