This time of year we are all a little crazy with sewing for others. I’m usually getting up early to sneak in some sewing before work and then staying up late to get some more done. But even with my mind on sewing gifts I can’t help but want to do a bit of “selfish sewing” too. Here are the top 5 things on my selfish sewing list:
in this Arizona Knit from Art Gallery
I’ve been so excited for this new Grainline Studio pattern! I’ve yet to meet a Grainline pattern I didn’t LOVE (8 scout tees and counting). I think this graphic print will work really well!
Since moving to Northern California I’ve been needing more “wintery” me mades. I think this long sleeved blouse would be so great in this navy plaid. I love the gathered yoke detail in the back.
I’m really torn on what fabric for this! I have two ideas and really really love both.
Option 1: Robert Kaufman Chamonix Cotton Molskin in Navy and Tan (pretty similar combo to the pattern cover)
Which combo would do you like best for this pattern???
version 2 with the stacked collar
I’ve actually had this combo cut out and ready to sew for close to a year! Anyone else neglect projects like this? I really need to sew it up because this blouse is perfect for layering, the peter pan collar is so cute poking out of a sweater. I’ve made this blouse before in an adorbs Japanese double gauze and wear it A LOT
