I, Katrina, make an absolutely binding agreement with the internet to make lots of things this summer. I've already made a dress so far, though it came out a hideous burlap sack and so I feel no need to post pictures of it.
My to-do list is rather short, since I'm still working in two labs at school as well as taking a summer course (and this is supposed to be summer vacation how exactly?).
In no particular order:
1. Stashbusting with Vogue 8772
A while ago I was hunting around for the perfect basic shirt pattern. This one seemed to have a bit of everything; a decent silhouette, a shirt collar, a bow collar, nice cuffs, good length, etc etc. I want to try my hand at sewing sheer fabric with the bow collar perhaps, as well as just making myself a couple of good, standard dress shirts for school. We'll see how far I get.
2. Colette Chantilly
I am a Colette newbie. Though I have been frequenting their website for over a year now, I have yet to make one of their patterns, but after ogling Mika and Tasia's versions of the Chantilly I new I needed one really, really badly. I have never sewed a full lining into a dress before, but man am I getting sick of facings. I am so ready.
Happy Victoria Day everybody!
