File Under: Other Sewing

I've been sewing some non-quilty things lately - "other sewing" as I tend to call it in my head.

First is this fleece jacket for G made using McCalls 5743. Do I even need to mention that the fabric was her choice?

The buttons were, too.

I had to use the walking foot to deal with all those layers of fleece, and marking the pieces was a little challenging but other than that, the pattern came together pretty well.

Next up, is a pencil skirt I made because I couldn't find what I was looking for in the stores. This also came together quickly, even with the zipper (glue baste for the win!). The fabric is a stretch cotton, and it's quite comfy.

Both of these finishes were on my 2013 4th Quarter list of Finish Along projects and I have to say, extrinsic motivation really works for me!

  3. Yay for cute finishes and checking them off the FAL list!


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
