I spent this weekend working on a few projects. However, I think I bit off a bit more than I could chew because I didn’t actually complete any of them. I worked on canning some chutney-like plum sauce (I was sure to include some more of those Colorado peaches in it, of course). I started making a fabric shade for the hideous florescent lights in my kitchen. I worked on another grill tool carrier for a friend. I put up some new curtain rods in hopes that I would soon get to making some curtains for my apartment (yes, we have been living without curtains for about 2 months now…it definately makes getting from the shower to the bedroom interesting…). So yes, so many projects, so little time.
This brings us to this little post today. Since I don’t have any finished projects to show you, I thought it would be a great chance to feature some of your projects that you have posted to the Flickr group!
This first top was made by Pink Tulip. I think it is very flattering on her, and the fabric is lovely. I like that this top is long sleeved, so its obviously good for the cool fall weather up ahead, but the colors could work for spring as well.
This next piece is by Ginny Rae of Aunt GiGi’s Craft Corner. She used an old 90’s pattern to make a jumper that is stylish for today. I love her use of plaid…I have been seeing it around a lot lately. Like Pink Tulip’s top, this dress can be worn in other seasons too, depending on whether you layer it or wear it on its own.
This last top is by April Rhodes of Sew to Speak. I absolutely love the neckline on this tops…it is so unique! Again, I could see this working for autumn with a long sleeved shirt underneath, or a blazer, and I could see it working for spring/summer on its own.
Great job on your lovely work, ladies! I really enjoy seeing your projects. If any more of you are interested in participating, just join our Flickr Group! This edition of Build Your Wardrobe will be running through November!
