I pinned it all down and went to town.
This was fun= joyful.
When I was done I cut away the extra stabilizer and rinsed it out.
Steam and the wooden clapper. It came up beautiful.
Teal or turquoise?
Chiffon tunic from the Grunge Collection. 03/2014#126.
I added sleeve tabs. My new machine makes perfect button holes!!!! That brings me joy!!
Barcelona tank top X's 2. One in lace over a lace trimmed one. The little over jacket I'm wearing, is an orphan I made about 3 years ago, also self drafted, never blogged about it.
The very loose weave of the fabric easily allowed me to add a hand crocheted scalloped edge all the way around it.
I also made another altered Vogue 8950. I blogged about it first here.
Yes - I made More stuff this month!
My brother got a Voo Doo doll for his birthday. Made from an old T-shirt. We decided instead to call it an acupuncture doll. This was fun. What do you give a guy who has everything?
From my new Turkish sewing magazines, I made a jumpsuit that I just love. I blogged about it here.
I also made a white blouse from one of the Magazines. It's been a very long time since I've made a placket with buttonholes. It turned out just okay. I had problems with some of the stitching order due to no instructions. But now that I have it figured out I might make it again. I also dislike the fabric. It's a linen /cotton blend. Next time I'll stick to one or the other. Somehow it combines the worst properties of both fabrics. However it still has a nice feel. This fabric was not inexpensive, I noticed after I pre washed it,it had a few holes in it. I thought I was being careful but somehow I managed to place a hole right by the middle button. Not sure how I'm going to fix it.

We are almost at the end of this post. Yeah!
The last project is McCalls 7389 view B.
I only have one picture that turned out of me wearing it. I think it's really cute. If you don't like showing your under arms then this is not the top for you. It exposes what I like to call my 'chicken fat'. But when I'm hot I really don't care!
Now I'm done. I'd be surprised if you have read this far! I am so tired of taking pictures of myself. I'm starting to feel like I have a narcissistic disorder!! I can assure you I don't.
That's it for June. Now I have to clean up my sewing room. It looks like a bomb went off in there.
Thanks for stopping by.
