On the cutting room table...

Sew...I'll be busy working on these projects over the next few weeks:

Butterick 5682--my first pair of jeans. I've chosen an indigo denim (looks black to me). It's a 10oz denim with just a bit of stretch. The project will expose me to new techniques and may find me using my embroidery features of my machine.  I started working on this one today, and I'm so excited!!!  

Simplicity 1699--I've had a pink/fuschia linen blend with a coordinating embroidered piece in my stash for a long time. This is finally the season.... This peplum top and pants should be adorable as Spring makes its entry!

Butterick 5382--I love the neckline of this dress. I cut it in a blue knit that may not have enough stretch. I may have to find someone it will actually fit when it's all over. I have a two-way stretch stand standing for the do-over just in case I'm "stitch-slapped" during the first round! 😁

New Look 6150--I had great success on this one the first go 'round. This time I have a delicious red knit.... It's a blue red--my favorite.


  1. Hi Vita, you are going to be busy for the start of the challenge, good to see - it might inspire everyone else to get moving too, lol's

    1. I hope so Sarah. I'm trying a new strategy.... I thought if I cut out a few garments, I can get ahead of the curve.

  2. I like your strategy. Maybe I should use that idea and get a move on.
