Plan Part One: Finish My Projects

Yes, the first part of my Self-Stitched-September plan is fairly straight forward -- finish  my half completed projects. I'm off to a good start this week with an evening spent working on my now belated birthday dress. It should be ready for photos by Wednesday. Yay!

 Next on the agenda is a green stretch cotton Ginger skirt I started in Vancouver. All it needs is a zipper, hem and the waistband facing.

After that, this very cherry red rayon will finally make its way into Vogue 1120, minus the belt. It's all cut out, and the pleats basted shut. I started this dress before I really knew anything about fitting, so it's going to be a bit of a surprise once I get it together. Hoping for the best!

Getting all three of these projects done brings me up to four me-made dresses and two me-made skirts that I can actually wear. I have a few other me-made garments that just don't fit at the moment, so they're sitting this challenge out. Stay tuned for next week's plan of attack.

During my countdown to SSS, I also have to get a birthday present together for my younger sister. I chose this white cotton poplin from Fabric.com, printed with cream bones that look like herringbone from a distance. It's just her kind of print. Now if I can just pick a garment that won't eat up all of my selfish sewing time...

I love the bone fabric. The red rayon will look lovely made up. I look forward to seeing your creations.
