Memorial Day at last! I have a lot of things planned for the weekend, including my first foray back into the Craft Lounge since vacation. And it is a newly transformed Lounge, too. My fabric stash has been moved from a crammed-full old dresser into large plastic sweater boxes that slide neatly away under the bed. Much easier to find what I am looking for this way!
I am also in the process of de- or un-stashing some the the fabrics I bought that perhaps were not the best idea - fabrics that either seduced me with their low price or that I ordered on line, but ultimately don't love. I'm trying to use them up as muslin. Fellow sewists - what do you do with your more ill advised purchases?
Anyway, I cut both of the tops that I plan to work on this weekend in two of my cheap knits "muslins". I'm starting with this Vogue Today's Fit pattern:
And I also plan to work on this Kwik Sew basic tee:
I also plan to head back to work on my pants muslin. And I have to admit to having trepidations. It seems like every time I try to make pants, I end up losing weight (LOL - I should try to make pants all the time, no?). Anyway, I thought I had the fit just about perfected before my travel, but, well, we'll have to see how they are doing now.
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend, everyone!
