Sew Selfless September: Jalie 3022

So, I’m almost a month late with this.  I’m not gonna lie, these pants were not completed in September.  I finished them on October 4th and then didn’t get photos taken for 2 more weeks after that.   I did start them in September, though!

My friend Amanda and I signed up for a yoga class together this Fall, so I thought, what a better thing to make her than some yoga pants?  Unexpectedly, she took a flight off of her bike (so scary!) and broke her hand, so these yoga pants will just be for chillaxing purposes for now.  Continue to heal well, Amanda!

Sew Selfless September: McCall’s 6966

Well, this is a tad late, but it was a little slow going between my short participation in the Fashion Challenge 2, and my September dental torture procedure (God bless nitrous oxide.  However, I’m not sure the issue was fixed, as I’m having pain again.  :(  I despair), but here is my second Sew Selfless September item!


It’s McCall’s 6966 (which you already knew by the post title) and the same pattern I used for my Mini Wardrobe gathered silk georgette skirt.  I made this skirt for my sis, K.  While we were shopping last Fall, we found pretty much this exact skirt at Gap and she really loved it, so I decided to whip her up one!

SSS: Weekly Wrap Up Round 4

And now we have finally made it:  the last Sew Selfless September weekly wrap up.


Beth from Sewing After Dark made an adorable dress for her daughter, which you can see here (privacy settings won’t allow me to post the photo here on the blog).

And that’s all she wrote!

I bet you’re also wondering where my last two items are…they’re done, but I have been terrible with getting photos of anything lately, thus the scant posting.  You’ll see them sometime this month, I expect!

Thank you guys so much for sewing with me – it was totally awesome to see what everyone came up with!  :)


SSS: Weekly Wrap Up Round 2

Welcome to the second Sew Selfless September weekly wrap up!  Things seem to be slowing down a bit, but there are still a couple of items to share.

Before that, though, I just wanted to say how humbled I am by the response I received to my post about my elimination from the Fabric Mart Fashion Challenge 2 competition.  I definitely felt pretty disappointed, but all of your responses more than made up for that and showed me what a loving community of sewists I’m a part of.  You guys are really sweet and I appreciate each and every one of you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

So, let’s see what’s been goin’ on…

We have another visit from our friend from across the pond at Creative Saturdays, who made a lovely sewing kit for her sister, who is going off to college next week!  Such a transition.

What a sweet gift from sister to sister!

The best gifts are the ones you didn’t know you wanted, IMO.   :)
