Update: Kwik Sew 3576!

Update:  6 Feb:  I altered the dress:  I took off an inch on each side and in my waist area - I also took 1 inch off the total length - I do think it's a better fit.  In addition, I took out that wonky hem tape and did a blind stitch hem (which is never blind to me - I can always see it).  

I've been busy today doing alterations - two original jeans hems (1 skinny black Hudson and a drawstring white True Religion).  In addition, I took in two shirts and one dress.

Time off to Sew!!

Finally, I took two weeks off and really needed it.  Last week my brother visited and we went to the BCS Rose Bowl.  This week I slept and sewed.  So, I've finished all my "crafty projects" (minus one more that is almost finished).  Next, I'm on to the serious projects - real dresses with adult fabric (the Colette Macaron dress and a Kwik Sew 3576 dress).

New Sewing Tool to start the New Year

Well, now that I'm over the shock of 2010.  Let's talk sewing.

Well, I really cleaned up for Christmas, in some ways.  I did get a black pair of skinny Hudson jeans.  I actually have to exchange them for a size down!  (I'm on WW).   But, more importantly I got an Oliso TG 1600 iron - the Mercedes of Sewing Irons from my parents!

Happy New Year - Welcome 2010!
