March has been quite a good sewing month for me. I don’t know if it’s the warmer weather or the Great British Sewing Bee being back on TV that has inspired me but I’ve made 4 items and completed 2 UFOs!
At the end of my January and February sewing round up, I was in the process of making Sew Over It’s Edie top in a metallic stripe jersey. That was my first completed make of the month and I love it. The neckline is my favourite feature. It’s so neat as well! Read my full blog post here.
My second completed make was another jersey top. This one was the Tilly & the Buttons Freya top in a gorgeous bright blue leopard print jersey. I’ve seen so many lovely Freya tops and dresses I knew it was only a matter of time before I made one. This was my third in a trio of jersey tops made recently and I’ve enjoyed trying different jersey tops. I love this top and am going to be blogging about it soon!
The next item I made was another Sew Over It Kimono for my holiday at Easter! This is the second time I’ve made this and I learnt from my mistakes. I used French seams this time and the finish is so much better. I thought this would be a flattering and useful piece of clothing to take away with me.
My final complete new make was technically finished in April but only just! This was also a make for my holiday and I’m so pleased with it. It’s the Nina Lee Moselle Dress and such a simple summer staple that I’d like to make more of. I used a chambray with metallic gold hearts on it. Again, I plan on blogging about it soon.
The two UFOs that I’ve finally finished are my stripy Nina Lee Portobello Trousers and my flowery Sew Over It Libby Blouse. They’ve been on my UFO pile for at least 6 months and I’m pleased they’re finally completed. The trousers just needed hemming, that’s how lazy I am! The blouse had a few more steps to complete so needed more work but they’re now finished. Yay!
I’ve got sooooo many plans for April and with the Easter holidays this month, I’ve got some sewing time! Hopefully it’ll be as successful a month as March.
