I haven't been posting (like usual) but I have been over-the-top busy with sewing. I decided to expand my business into sewing Orthodox liturgical items like vestments and paraments. Phew! My kitchen really is my personal sweat shop these days.
Any who, I thought I would share some clothing that I made using the Made by Rae Washi expansion pack. I think the Washi is one of my favorite patterns- it works so well with many fabrics and is quite easy to sew. You can make dresses or tops out of the same pattern. The new pattern expansion includes new necklines and sleeve variations.
This one is a chambray Washi, lined with a floral cotton. I did not use the expansion pack for this one. If I remember correctly, it was released later that day (after sewing) and I needed fifty cups of tea to recover from the horrid timing.
I always like how the linings look.
I made this one in a very soft cotton. It was my favorite. I don't think it looks home-made. At least I hope not, haha! I always worry when people ask me if I made what I was wearing.
I never said anything at the time, but I had another miscarriage the week of Christmas. It was pretty rough- I sewed a lot to help myself feel better.
I made this throw quilt as a Christmas gift as well. Quilt making is not for me! It is amusing how various forms of sewing attract and detract people. Maybe someday I will like quilting, ha.
Sure, this photo is like three months late, but I have to share the awesome. The Defiant as a Christmas tree ornament!!! (For non-nerds- it is from Star Trek Deep Space Nine, which has my heart)
And to continue with a theme- Star Trek Christmas Cookies!
