Work in Progress Wednesday

Happy Wednesday to you!  Hope the day is treating you well.

I have a few projects I have been working on today and a few I have completed.  

We have started Round Two of the Cocorico Bee!
This bee started my love of foundation paper piecing.
Melinda asked for farmer's market inspired blocks.  I have a pattern on my Etsy site that I tweaked a bit - Strawberries in a Basket!  I'm looking forward to sewing this block.

I have been working on a short sleeve version of my Anna Blouse.  The top pictured is made from a mystery fabric I found at a garage sale.  I was hoping it was rayon but turned out to be polyester.  If you have a mystery fabric, check out this fabric burn chart from Threads.  You can easily test for fiber type with a thin strip of fabric and a lighter or match.
The sleeves are just a wee bit tight around the hem so another muslin I will make  ; )

Deer and Doe is a French pattern company with adorable designs.  They recently released a free pattern for a t-shirt - The Plantain.  I gave it a try and am pretty happy with the results.  I made mine in a size 40 because I wanted a looser fit at the bottom.  I also shortened the cap sleeves to
4 3/4".   The top portion and shoulders are a bit large so I will make the top a 38 and leave the bottom as is - it has a slightly swingy effect!

Link up over at Freshly Pieced and share you works in progress!
