How much more fabric can I stash in my sewing room? Not much. If my husband knew how much fabric I buy on a monthly basis, he would probably have me committed! Or worse, he might have me put more money towards more sensible (and not fun) things like our mortgage, or our retirement fund.
In order to leverage all the cash spent towards fabric, on January 1st, I had decreed that 2017 was going to be the year where I would sew all of my clothes. Oh well…that lasted all of 2 days. Right when my inbox started to fill up with super crazy deals of extended Boxing week sales, my willpower vanished.
With a bit of introspection, and when my credit card bill finally arrived, I came to the conclusion that when it comes to sewing, I have no willpower over nice shiny (or matte) new fabric.
Talking about nice things, here’s my first me-made clothing item of 2017, the pattern is from the early spring collection of McCall’s, model 7549. I took my time sewing it as it was my first time quilting fabric. I’m quite happy with the results.
Here’s a look at the same model but made in lighter denim. You will get a better view of the quilting details.
I already have another project lined up on my sewing table. See you in a couple of weeks for another slice of my sewing life!
