Today I'm working on a half dozen tiny doll dresses, both formal and informal, and taking a break making a pokemon inspired dress for a customer (can I admit that if I don't post any hints as to my business name?). And between all that I'm dreaming of actually sewing up a few things for my fall school wardrobe.

So what are YOU making today?

I am so jealous....I am at work....
I wish I could sew more, evenings just are not enough, especially with my grandchildren coming to swim...so much for sewing. But I love them. I wish I could stay home, not work and sew....my dream!

I'm working on the knit T sew along. I just finished moving the dart in my altered pattern and am getting ready to draw the completed pattern on some gridded synthetic fabric I found in a fabric store in Seattle.

If the day goes smoothly, I want to sew one more trial garment before getting some good fabric.

This seems like a lot of effort for a T shirt but I want a TNT pattern and it's my first real FBA!

I am actually getting some sewing done.
I have some sturdy, dark jersey that I want to make up as a bubble skirt from one of several old BWOF's.
I am also tracing about 10 patterns from old mag's from 2006 & 2007 before their rightful owner returns (sewing friends are the best!).
I also have a couple of reviews to finish writing.

Doll clothes sounds like fun. They have tiny SA's, but you don't have to worry about the fit as much.

A lot of us do seem to have found our sewing enthusiam!
Perhaps the prospect of fall has us motivated.

Nothing, I'm staying out of the sewing room today---however it seems to be calling me. I have been sewing for days and need a break.

Finishing a wedding dress alteration, then starting a fleece jacket for my daughter for school. After that, I am planning to work on an apron or two, possibly start a hat project...

I love making American doll clothes, too. I did a whole wardrobe for my niece and she loved it! You can be as creative or as simple as you want and velcro is so much easier than buttons or snaps.

It's a toss up. My former job in a male dominated profession called for fairly conservative clothes. I have mostly suits in my closet with some dressy feminine outfits. Or jeans and tee shirts, lol. I have very few casual *and* feminine wardrobe choices for an upcoming wedding shower.

Sooo, it's either a skirt, or lightweight cover up to wear over a tank top to wear with the only pair of capris that I own. Either way, I'm determined to wear this tank top before the summer is over. It's white and has a white satin band that is (I think) handsomely embellished). What to do, what to do....sigh.

I'm trying to get my Jalie jeans past the no-waistband stage. Which means making decisions about the degree of snugness that is desirable and/or bearable. Just taking an after-fitting thinking/computer break before I go back to it. To confuse myself I'm making 2 pairs at once in different degrees of stretchiness.
