The above fingerless mittens have no appeal to me now. The only reason being I bought handspun and dyed yarn. The dye process left me with some murky purple in the middle of the skein that I couldn't see before I bought it. I'll finish them all the same. It's funny how one day I can be very excited about something I'm making and the next it just seems to be a hassle.
What I'm really excited about is this dress;
If you sew a lot maybe you'll understand. I just finished my first ever full bust adjustment! And added darts to a pattern that doesn't include them! While reading a sewing book I came across the part about how all patterns are made for a B cup. Well, I don't fit that category. Frustrating yes, but I was so thrilled when I came away with a properly fitting bodice after the FBA.
My hope for this coming year is to make a lot of my own clothes. Clothes that actually fit perfectly would be a dream!
Look at this wonderful stack of spring/summer fabric. I love when I have spring travel planned. The need for new clothes is exciting, especially when that means sewing spring clothes in the dead of winter!
