Thanks so much for all your nice comments on my sewing room – I really love it, and I’m pleased that so many of you do as well! It feels like a million years since I sewed something (actually, about 2 months) so I decided to get right on it. I’m starting out with something totally in my comfort zone, McCall’s 6554
The fabric is a stretch sateen that I bought last summer at SR Harris in Minneapolis. I’m thinking this will be my Derby dress if it turns out well.
How long has it been since I sewed? So long that I didn’t realize I was completely out of light colored zippers and batiste for lining! A trip to the fabric store will be in order tomorrow, and then I think I can make this dress up quickly.
So far the new room is great – it’s smaller than the old room, which makes it easier to use, and it’s so nice not having to look at all that attic clutter while I sew! I’m someone who doesn’t function well in clutter – I won’t realize what’s wrong, but I get all cranky and tired when surrounded by a mess. Now if only my desire to de-clutter could keep up with that!
