True Bias Roscoe Blouse

Indiesew Roscoe Blouse made from rayon challis

This blouse was a garment I enjoyed making from beginning to end.  I am usually not a fan of hand sewing but something about handstitching the neckline and sleeves  was so relaxing.  Rewarding, too, this blouse is beautiful and  I love it.

Christmas in July

Christmas in July tree skirt, made using a free tutorial

You hear that phrase quite a bit - Christmas in July, right?  Well, this year I actually sewed ahead of schedule for the holiday season.  This beautiful tree skirt is for Kaitlyn and Jake and will be perfect in their home for the Christmas season.  By the way, can you believe it is almost their one year anniversary?  See wedding details here

McCall's 7247

McCall's 7247 from Mood Fabrics' Viscose Jersey
Solid color knit shirts are a need for my wardrobe, so this week I worked on one to fill the void in my closet.    I went with Mood Fabric’s Cobalt Viscose Jersey, which has a lovely hand and drape.  This color is sold out but there are several other colors in that same fabric or you can pick from this great selection.
