A Sewn Item a Week – Week 1

I was inspired to sew after all my fabric purchases and the most exciting thing I discovered was soft, lovely knits!

In the past (and my husband is trying to change this…) I always purchased and sewed cottons, linens and curtain fabrics, making fitted but somewhat stiff-ish garments.   The knits have opened up a whole new world of fitted garments, that take… ooo..  lets say at least half the time to sew!   This little number I made using the ’80s’ fabric – it was on sale, so for my first attempt I wasn’t too concerned if I messed it up.   I made the pattern for, cut and sew’d the dress in around 3hrs.    There will be more where that came from, and I’ll try to get the pattern into the computer and upload it shortly.
