SSS Day 10

New Self Stitched September readers may not know this, but I’ve been to sew all types of things – quilts, home decor & of course clothing. One of the fabric stores I like to follow is The Quilt Shoppe and their blog In Stitches. Last month I saw that they were doing a blog feature called “Finished Friday”. I was sewing away for September and really wanted to post my Burda dress, but I didn’t quite finish it in time. So this month when I saw the post again I was thrilled to submit my dress! So….

Now on to yesterday’s SSS outfit! It was casual day again. Seeing as I’m still working on my jeans, I of course could not wear them so I wore my trusty stretch denim shorts (McCall’s 3132), my yellow Sadie, and a black knit cardigan from Simplicity 2560 (click on the links to see each individual item in detail).

I’m glad to say I got my Anita Jeans pattern altered and mostly cut out yesterday on my lunch hour. Here’s how it’s shaping up (note: all the white “lines” are the widths and lengths I’ve pinned out to make the pattern fit better):

JEANS!

If the real jeans fit as well as the pattern did, I’ll be super happy. I will get to work on them this weekend, but I do have to finish a sleeping bag repair for my co-worker (I’ve had it FOREVER and she’s starting to ask about it! lol), so hopefully it’s a quick fix and I can get back to jean making pronto! Have a great weekend and see you tomorrow!
