One of the reasons I’m in South Carolina for the month of February (plus a week on either side) is to get a jump on my sewing ideas.
For some time now, I’ve been wanting to get some designs out of my head and worked up in fabric, so I plan to be very industrious in SC.
I packed up my machine and as much related paraphernalia as would fit in my car. I didn’t bring an iron or ironing board with me, thinking E might have those.
But, I was able to easily find what I needed at Walmart and Target once I got here.
One of the things I want to sew up are bias tapes. I’ve come by seven or eight vintage silk scarves and think they’d make up nicely.
In the end, I was able to sew up about two dozen “shirt-dresses”, a design that came to me in a dream a few years ago (never-mind that just a month ago I saw a similar idea from “now this” on my daughter’s friend’s facebook feed…) Ugh! I’ve wasted so much time!
