I've been featured... and what I'm working on


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!
