Other plans

 My sister visited recently and I made up this cushion 

cover for her.

Then she helped me go through my stash of clothing 

fabric and match up some patterns...

The green check was a remnant from a thrift shop, 

      the donkey brown cord from Supercheap Fabrics. 


The mauve double gauze, from Spotlight, will be a top,

 the pink/red linen, an online purchase, a dress 

possibly for a mid-year wedding?

I love this pattern that Helen bought...

the navy check will be for her; 

the blue/pink will be mine.

Unfortunately, there is not enough pink to make 

this dress, it's pretty narrow.

I bought these 2 yards at Salvo's for $3.

When I did some research I found it online here

for $36.75 a yard!

Too nice to mess up, don't you think?

Finally another op-shop find, a cotton gauze that will 

become a kimono-style nightie.

All recorded here for accountability's sake!

Happy days,

I'm so glad for you that you and your sister share an interest in garment-making! What a fun thing to enjoy together. And it looks like she's a great help to you. Thanks for showing pictures of your patterns. I'm always on the look-out for a sleeveless or short-sleeved dress pattern that's casual and hides (ha!) my too-large tummy. (No amount of exercising has ever made that go away.) I love that you're posting on your blog for accountability, which is something I like to do to. Have fun sewing! Looking forward to when you post about your successes.

You'll have a whole new wardrobe for spring and summer. Looking sharp with great thrifty finds - whoohoo!

I like how you made a list to keep you accountable. I think, as a reader, we enjoy seeing your plans laid out, whether or not they come to fruition. Just the idea of matching up fabrics with patterns (and maybe storing them together?) would be a step in the right direction for me. Lovely post!
