For years I blogged twice a week, but now I haven’t blogged for a month. Like everyone, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, learning and reflecting… and working from home… running Sewcialists… and sewing!
I have some special projects that I want to blog about so they are recorded, but also some quick things I’d like to mention. All of these fit my self-imposed rule of supporting companies that actively support diversity in the sewing community. I made a few things in May and June that I’m not going to mention because the companies haven’t posted about Black Lives Matter or responded to my emails asking about their stance.
I made a reverse-applique Black Lives Matter shirt! I’ve worn it to protests and to school on the day parents picked up their belongings. I also made one for a friend!
Did I ever show you this Closet Case Patterns cat onesie? It’s the Amy jumpsuit in an ITY knit. I’ve had a secret mission to buy and sew cat themed fabric during lockdown!
Dressmaking Debacles inspired me to make a jersey maxi dress and it is so comfy!
I sewed some precious stash rayon knit into a tank top…
My mom sent me a picture of an inspiration dress, and I sewed her a version. Doesn’t she look great?
I made a Muna and Broad Torrens Box top, and took pictures after having a nap in it. I avoided wovens for years for fear of wrinkles, and embracing the wrinkles is helping change my mind!
Finally… I had bedhead A LOT. It’s my work from home style!
I’d love to hear about your month! How are you? What’s new?
