I've been totally missing from this space for far too long! Of course, Liz came for six days and that was the happiest sewing I've done in a long time. We spent a couple of days up in Seoul at the fabric market, but once we were back, every night was spent sewing side by side in my dining room. It was bliss. Before she got here, I did complete the twin sized quilt I was making for my sister:
Also, before Liz got here, I wanted to try my hand at a tee shirt dress. I've seen lots of different varieties of these dresses. I was especially excited to try the floral/ruffled embellishment that I'd seen a tutorial for.
I think with the added flower and ruffle trim, it turned out just how I was hoping. And seriously easy! The pink tank top and coordinating fabric has been laying out for nearly three weeks now. I better get back to work!
Once Liz arrived with all of her energy, I was motivated to get to work on my Oliver and S, "Ice Cream Dress" pattern.
While Liz was here, we also both made pairs of the Amy Butler Lounge pants from her "In Stitches" book. I've used the pattern countless times, but Liz never had, so I decided not to let her leave until she used one of my favorite patterns herself. I didn't get her photos downloaded to my computer, so maybe she'll upload here soon. It really is a great pattern!
With only three weeks left in Korea, I have a very long list of projects I want to finish before life begins to transit. Wish me luck!
