What I Made This Week-July 8th

I managed to do a bit more sewing this week, though it was one of those weeks where I had to make major mistakes on everything I made, so I am becoming quite proficient at taking garments apart.

Despite the mistakes, I am quite happy with what I have produced:

This is a shirt my sister in law asked me to transform. This mistake, I need to add a few more rows of elastic thread.

I silk screened yellow butterflies all over this beautiful knit, with a delicate floral pattern 

and made leggings. The mistake, I am used to knit stretching in every direction, so I cut without checking. The leggings only stretch length wise not width wise, which is the most important way to stretch. No idea what to do with these now. My heart aches over this one.

A custom matching dress. The mistake, I made this super wide and short on my first attempt. Even though I have made this style dress numerous times, I totally messed up. It was a tad annoying.

and these three shirts are the before the transformation shots. I finally remembered to take before pictures.

Three shirts transformed into this lovely floral dress. Mistake, same as the other dress. I made it too wide. Ugh!

Blue, White and Green Rosettes. No mistakes!

Red Rosettes. No mistakes:)

Hip stripy pants. No mistakes:)

Jas showing just how fun these pants are:)

The mistake, I sewed the second to last panel of the skirt on backwards, and went on to serge the seam. That was un-fun!

They all worked out in the end, except for the leggings, which I still need to figure out what to do with. If you have any ideas on what I should do with the leggings, please do share them. I would be so happy to find a way to salvage them.

I hope you all have a great weekend. We will be celebrating my granny's 70th birthday today:)

  1. I like the premise of your post ~ great idea! You've been quite busy and everything is simply darling. I especially love the pattern and colors of the material used in the first shirt ~ so light and delicate.
