I'm being featured on Pattern Review today. What does this mean? I get my mug on the front page of their website and a coupon for a nice discount on their products... I'll take it!
P.S. I am working on several sewing projects currently so I've been a bit slow on the blogging. I have a dress in the works from the the new 04/2013 Burda magazine. I was a bit uninspired by last month's issue but I found a few possibilities in the newest issue. I couldn't help myself with another warm weather garment. It's going to get warm soon... I think? I'm using a striped fabric and doing some chevron action on the bodice.
I'm also working on some running gear. I traced off a pattern from an old running shirt but am not that thrilled by it right now because it's not made with the best fabric. I'm using McCall's 6453 as a base for another top (or inspiration to draft a new top of my own.) I want to add extended length sleeves that can fold over to cover my hands during colder runs. The fold-over will be like the cuffs on newborn baby clothes that cover their little hands so they don't scratch themselves and to keep their tiny hands warm. I hope to get at least one sassy new thing ready for running soon because I will be meeting up with the lovely Melissa of Fehr Trade here in Baltimore in about a week for a run... another seamstress (quite possibly more) obsessed with sewing activewear!
