Chambray Shirt

For my garment a month I have decided to make a chambray shirt using McCall's 6436. The fabric I bought earlier this year from Tessuti's. Its a lovely soft light coloured chambray. This pattern appeals, because I don't need to make a FBA, it has already done that, very exciting.

I'm making view D without the pockets on the bust, I don't need anything more there. I haven't made a shirt for a very long time so it will be a challenge. I am looking forward to sewing this pattern. I'm hoping it will be made quite a few times.

Happy Sewing!

Commitment and Goals and of course fabric

My sewing has been sparse lately. I'm just not feeling it at the moment and I'm not sure why. I have a million ideas in my head but the lack of drive is missing, so the ideas are just ideas. So I have decided to set some goals and to make a commitment to sew every day. Even if its 10 minutes ,I think it will help me to get going again. That is my goal this week.

However when my sewing is a bit slow my fabric buying accelerates. I never know why this is, anyway I bought some gorgeous fabric from Tessuti's. The first is a beautiful double georgette. It is quite a large pattern so I think a simple shirt or top will be gorgeous.

Then these 2 knits. They are a slub open knit.  I couldn't decide which one so I bought the charcoal and stone. I love these and I can't wait to make them up.
So not much sewing but fabric buying. I am making a commitment to sewing every day even if its only a few seams.
