Work in Progress Wednesday
It is Wednesday again and time seems to be flying by. The kiddos have been in school for a week and I've been struggling with setting a schedule for myself. My main work in progress is grading my Anna Blouse. Basically grading means taking a pattern and making it larger and smaller. I learned to grade in design school but that was over 20 years ago! A task that I dreaded at first, but have come to enjoy as I measure each seam, feeling very satisfied when the pieces sew together!
I have a stack of fabrics to make more versions of the blouse and can't wait to share them here!
To help keep my sanity, I have set aside some time for sewing. In celebration of National Sewing Month, I will be sharing a project that uses a technique that is new to me - appliqué. I was inspired by the book Playful Patchwork by Suzuko Koseki. The project pictured will be a sweet little bag which I will share on the blog later this month.
I hope you enjoy these last few days of summer.
