November Wrap-up and December Plans

I won't drone on and on about the passage of time but...OH EM GEE! lol!

This month I sewed up 10 yards. I sewed:
  • Vogue 9026 top - 1.5 yards (WIP)
    • animal print double knit from Michael Levine (new) 
  • Burda magazine 9/2018 dress - 2.5 yards
    • print poly crepe woven from Ginny's (new)
    • zipper
  • Itch to Stitch Cape Cod Capelet top - 1.5 yards
    • striped sweater knit from SR Harris (stash)
  • Vogue 9111 top - 2.5 yards
    • tonal animal print jersey (stash)
  • Burda magazine 9/2018 pants - 2 yards (FAIL)
    • print rayon/lycra gabardine from Cali Fabrics (stash)
    • zippers
Favorite: I don't really have a favorite this month. I really like the Burda dress but am honestly less jazzed about it with it being sleeveless. The V9111 top isn't anything special but it's also exactly what I thought it would be, so that's great!

FAILS: Those dang-blasted pants! (read previous post for whiny saga) and my wonderful animal print knit did not pair well with the V9026 pattern. I still haven't looked at a fix for that :(

Accomplishments: Low key month here. Nothing special happened!

I also bought 12.5 yards of fabric on the trip to Ginny's.

2019 totals so far:
IN: 78 yards
OUT: 85.5 yards

December Plans:

December is always a bit harder to plan as I have that chunk of time off work. My last day of work is December 20th and I go back January 2nd. I get A LOT of sewing done during this time!

Until then, I'm going to continue to focus on completing some things:
*Burda 9/2018 dress (I just have finish the armholes)
*Vogue 9099 jacket (The lining is ready to sew in. I'm doing it by hand.)

I would realllly like to get a couple pair of knit or elastic waist pants done but I'm not sure it's going to happen. I may switch gears and sew up a couple knit dresses instead.


  1. I'm home longer than you. I don't go back until January 6th and I'm hoping to not only get the sewing cave redone but maybe even do a little sewing. I hope you do get a lot sewn so I can cheer you on!

  2. I am SO envious of your holiday break. We get to leave at noon on Christmas Eve, and then back to work on the 26th. Sad trombone. Looking forward to seeing your progress! (P.S. Headed to SR Harris this Saturday, BEST DAY OF THE YEAR! :D)

    1. Woooooohooo!!!!!!!!! Have fun! It is such an awesome place!!

      Even though your break is short (booo!), I hope it's AWESOME!

  3. That's a lot of good sewing done this month. Excited to see how the end of your year turns out.
