Now that the coat is complete, I've been thinking about what I might do as my next personal project (the weekend is coming up, afterall!). I want to do something a little less time-consuming this weekend, as I'm still recovering from the late nights of last weekend. So the obvious choice is . . . knit/jersey fabric!
It is supposed to be easy to sew, but it involves learning more about the serger I received about nine months ago and have still only used to finish seams (a woeful under-utilization of this wonderful machine, I know, I know). So I cracked open the book that my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas 2011, Sew U Home Stretch by Wendy Mullin, and started reading. I think I'm ready to dive in!
Now I have to decide on my first project. Devon and I are going out (yes!!) this Sunday night as he is doing a reading at the Columbia College Story Week kick-off (he is reading a story about the time he was banned from ever returning to Canada - it's a good one) so I'd love to have something ready to wear for our outing. I should probably start with a simple t-shirt, but I don't really want to wear that. Instead, I've narrowed down my choices to one of these:
So, Readers, which one would you go for?? Both patterns are generously offered free by their designers (just click on the title and it will take you there).
My goal is to work up to creating this jersey dress from Boden sometime later this summer:
Wish me luck on my new adventure!!
