Did all of you have a good weekend?
Ours was pretty great, really. Lazy and relaxing. Not much on my "to-do" list actually got done, but I did get a little sewing time in yesterday afternoon. Roger took all three boys outside with him after naptime to clean out his shop and work on the planter, which means I had a few hours of uninterrupted sewing time.
So what did I make?
After my relative success with the Dana Top, I decided to try another Sis Boom pattern and attempted the Meghan Peasant Top thinking it would be another good candidate for maternity wear. Though the pattern was great and fairly simple to make, I'm not as in love with this one. For one, I'm just not a fan of elastic around my ribcage. I also used a very soft Lisette Fabric for this and had all kinds of tension/puckering issues. I'm not an experienced enough sewist to work with slippery fabrics yet and actually get them to behave. I also made it way too long, so basically I have a new nightgown. Which can be fixed easily enough. I do like the fabric that I used and the shirt is fine, just not exactly as exciting as I'd hoped. But I'll still call it a success.
And what did my husband bring me as a gift when I was done sewing?
