Sewing Updates

I’m staying quite busy with sewing classes beginning, American Sewing Guild Neighborhood Group for kids, my new position with our ASG Chapter position on the Chapter Advisory Board plus all the other sewing teaching opportunities I have coming up. Busy is good.

I made this Valetta top from Blank Slate Patterns a little while ago. I love the style of it but am not a fan of ties as closures or of long sleeves. Even when I where a long sleeved top I am always rolling or pulling them up. So, instead of adding the ties as instructed in the pattern I added a button with loop closure at the neck opening. You can’t see it here but I found a gold colored rose button in my button box. I just slipped elastic into a casing when I shortened the sleeves. It’s a comfy top. I have been wearing it a lot.

One of my students and some of her friends were making some of these to sell in a school holiday bazaar in December. I thought it would be a fun project for our American Sewing Guild neighborhood group. The group is called Kids Sew Too. We started the project yesterday. Our group has 4 active members with lots of kids coming to check us out lately. We had 8 kids in attendance yesterday. It was a lot of fun and they all did a great job but, we were unable to finish our Money Monsters and will need to work on that at next month’s meeting.

I am trying to work through another level of BurdaStyle Instructor Training. This time I only need to complete 2 projects. This is the Knotted Midi Dress from the 1/2018 issue. I am almost finished with it. I’ll post more pictures later. This is my favorite color. And gray and red.

Short and sweet. I’m trying to get back into blogging. I think this approach will help.

Happy Sewing until next time!

    So good to hear from you! Like that top, especially the fabric (cotton? rayon?). Good for you tackling another Burda level! Hope you’re staying warm up there. 😉
