Sew Possible

A journey into a self-made wardrobe

Archive for the month “June, 2011”

One down….

Well this week has definitely been busy. I did get one item finished though. My refashioned dress that I bought from Goodwill. I attempted to dye it again to see if it would get darker. It did but then so did my finger!. Yep I removed my gloves to find that one of my fingers had been dyed BLACK. I’m sorry that there aren’t any pictures of that but I freaked out and ran to get some baking soda and vinegar to get it off. Luckily I removed most of it and no longer look like my finger is rotting off my hand. So the fruits of that labor didn’t produce much better results on the dress. It is a little darker but not much.

This is it… my new house-dress! I didn’t intend to use it a house dress but when I dyed it, the color pooled in some places so I had no choice. I still like it though.

Next I will finish the hem on my pencil skirt.

Its Official!!

I am now officially on vacation! I am not going to get to go anywhere but I do get one uninterrupted week off from work. So I have been thinking about how I was going to spend my holiday. I originally wanted to take the time to work on my business, but I have made the decision to focus on myself this week. I will be turning this into a Sewcation! I would like to get a few things done. First off I would like to finish those UFO’s that I was working on..remember those? Also I would like to put together a list of things that I would like to make that would complete my wardrobe starting with the less intimidating articles of clothing first. This list will even contain foundation garments! I am so excited…. and a little scared.
