I have been sewing a lot lately. Haven't kept very good records though.
I made myself a bag from an Amy Butler pattern. It is a perfect size for a weekend trip. Every time I see it I want to go on a weekend getaway. I used fabric from premier prints and lots of interfacing and pellon inside the bag. It has a nice big zipper and it sturdy and just cool.
My 17 year old needed a prom dress that covered her shoulders and didn't break the bank. We tried some on at stores and got the style figured out and then made our own. This combined 2 or 3 patterns and I think the put skirts (lining, fabric, overlay of chiffon) on probably 8 times. She kept changing her mind. Gathered, not gathered, pleats, no pleats, etc. I learned a lot from making this dress. She loved it in the end.
