FNSI- Tonight is the Night!
I’m participating in Friday Night Sew In again. It’s a great way to make myself set aside time to get some sewing done. Then I get to share what I’ve done the next day with my virtual sewing sisters. And of course I get to see what they’ve worked on as well. If you want to join in, you can sign up at Handmade by Heidi.
Now the question is- what to work on? I have the top to Vogue 1282 sitting in my UFO pile waiting to be finished. It’s been there since April. That’s pretty ridiculous since it’s a pretty easy pattern. The problem is that the instructions/ finishing techniques suck and I just don’t want to deal with it. I know many people love Mcall/ Vogue/ Butterick, but I’m really close to being thru with them. Yes, I love my top from V1259, but, they just really need to work on their instructions and drafting. I actually have a lot of gripes with that pattern too.
My other option is to start the shorts from Simplicity 1808. The shorts have been on my to sew list for awhile now. I saw some great versions sewn here. So of course now I really wanna sew mine, lol.
Hmm, start something new or finish a UFO?
