I stepped out of my comfort zone this week.. and have been punished accordingly! Feeling like a very green sack of irish potatoes!! darn. Well.. I will style it up as best as I can and share with you all soon!
Oooh I do have two lots of awesome green fabric which would fit this week's theme. I have plans for skirts for both of them but I thought I'd trial run the new pattern on a different fabric first to get fit right.
Seems to be going okay at the moment - I am still struggling with removing excess fabric from the front of a skirt. I don't have this problem with my RTW vintage skirts/dresses so I don't know why the patterns from the same era have so much extra in that spot when the waists fit good.
I might post that bit in another thread though! Here are the green fabrics I have. The ones on the right which are destined to become skirts.
The one on the right is a quilting cotton which I have ideas for but it's the most I've ever paid for a fabric so I'm a little scared of cutting into it until my skills are better! It's fairly stiff so I want to make a very full, pleated 50's dress out of it!
Beautiful fabric..love it..

I havent even started yet... tooo many interuptions this week.ha..
how's your house coming?Happy Sewing
Dont be discouraged.. If you get your "green" done late..that's ok..I will enjoy seeing it late.. I too hate the fitting issue..even though, I have sewed for years.. I am not good at the grading patterns. I was always blessed that the patterns fit me pretty well, with very few adjustments..Now...."old age" and toooo many cookies... that isnt the case.. So, I am trying to learn to fit patterns..very time consuming. yuk...
Hang in there..It will get better.. looking forward to seeing your dress [even if its late.thats ok..]
