sewing side projects...........


I did a little sewing this weekend..... not on my Vogue patterns but on a couple of side projects.  This is a  sheer tunic that I made for a dinner party.  I used this chocolate polka dot sheer that I had leftover from a shawl & trim for a dress that I made a while back. 


It is a basic bodice with a ruffle made by pulling the elastic gently while I was sewing.  I used my serger for the rolled hem & back seams.  I also did a zig zag stitch on the back seams as this fabric frays easily.

I also made another maxi skirt for a girlfriend.......this is a one seam skirt with a fashion knit stripe fabric that is a cotton blend.


I used a regular stitch for the waist and a zig zag stitch for the back seam.

Sew you later!
