Summer Sewing
I have embarked on a lot of summer sewing this summer. I sew Bras designed by Beverly Johnson of Bra Makers. I went to get dressed one day and really took a look at what I was putting on my body and realized they the Bras I was wearing looked rather sad, in addition to the fact that I had hurt my shoulder and needed help to fasten them - not a good thing. I went to my "teacher" and got refitted and of course am on a mission of getting a new fit - not there yet.

My next venture was t-shirts. I always make a few each year and got on a "sew with friends" mission and got a few friends interested and we've been meeting a a local business to sew together and get those sergers earning their keep on our sewing tables.

I also needed some new clothes for church, so decided to sew a skirt - you'd think that my stash would dwindle but it hasn't. I've really added to the t-shirt stash, but maybe I can make up for it with the skirts.

What have you been sewing?

  1. RE: Summer Sewing

    Hi Cheryl, well I started in February intending to create a great many items, but forgot that if you make a list the devil can read it. All I've managed to make so far is a half slip, white linen shift dress, a crinkle pleat skirt, a printed Georgette dress. waiting to be sewn up; 2 bomber jackets, a Loden duffel coat, grey marl jersey surplice bodice dress, a princess cut faux suede (crushed raspberry colour) jacket, a mans zip front jacket for my son, white lawn kameez for my daughter, Also in the pipeline 2 winter coats for myself one with an attached waist length cape to keep my shoulders warm, I hate being cold. a couple of 8 gore skirts, plus tops to wear with them. Will I get them all done, I doubt it very much, but I'll keep plugging away at it.
