Hello All... how is everyone doing?
Have a Lovely Week.
The weather has warmed up considerably, reaching 92 degrees in New York today. I was totally thrown off guard, although I'd been listening to the forecast for the last few days, I didn't really think it would get so warm. Boy 'o boy was I wrong, and of all days, I had to be outside today... I think every other word that came out of my mouth was sheesh its hot...lol Also, it's good that I finished my jacket in the nick of time and was able to wear it for several days prior to this spontaneous heat wave.
I'm back on the tunic rage, and here is a pic of me wearing one of three that I'd made. I'm so enjoying these tops, they are comfortable, a great addition to my wardrobe and it allows me to deviate from the 5 day suit stints that I have a habit of falling into.
I've actually worn this top twice since making it and also have played out the other 2 that I've made. So what is a girl to do.. make another one. So while everyone else was out enjoying the warm weather, I whipped up this one yesterday.
This one I plan to wear tomorrow with a skirt. The fabric is from the batch of fabrics I'd purchased from N & M Fabric Center on Jamaica Avenue about a month or so ago. Fabulous shop, its a small fabric spot with loads of great fabric and loads of knits. I walked out of that store with 27 yards of knit fabric, so I have a lot of knit sewing to do....haha. Since I've revisited S2766, I'll be making a few more, but will work in short sleeves.
Oh, do you remember this project, where I vowed I was so over Tunics, well it has been modified for my daughter. I had to take in the shoulder and side seams, which was causing me a lil grief. Since I'd double serged the seams, you can imagine what it took to rip out those stitches. I think I need to get a new seam ripper, it was working double over time. I finished the hem of the dress with ribbon, I pressed the ribbon in half and then encased the dress edge and final stitched. Now, if I could get a pic of my dd in it.
Also, I've been on a beading kick. I dusted off my boxes of beads and whipped up a few over several days. One night, I couldn't believe, I'd spent a whole hour just working one necklace....lol. Here are a few pics
Have a Lovely Week.
