Is anyone else following Project Run & Play Season 3?
I'm slightly addicted. Maybe because one of my best bloggy friends is a contestant (Hi Stef!) or maybe because all the contestants have mad skills, and I'm hoping some of their awesomeness will rub off on me. Either way, ADDICTED. And I always have the intention of participating in the At-Home-Sew-Along but, I never get my project finished in time. This is the dress I started for the first week's Junebug Remix challenge.
I finally finished it a couple days ago but I have a really good reason why it took so long.
I discovered I HATE knits.
I mean I love them, they are cozy, soft and are a joy to wear but sewing them, UHG! I had such a hard time that I
gave up decided it was best to put it aside for awhile so I wasn't tempted to set it on fire. After letting it sit for a good 2 weeks, pouring over every helpful tip google provided me with a link to and watching several youtube videos, I was ready to try again.
It's not perfect. or anywhere close to great. or even good.
I'll go ahead and describe it as "acceptable for a first try."
Seriously, I have to give major props to anyone who can sew knits.
So without any further whining from me, here are a few more pictures of the dress.
At least it is "a good spinning dress."
I think I'm going to take a little break from sewing until I regain some confidence in my sewing abilities.
In the meantime I think I'll work on some more nursery projects.
Since baby is due in 7 weeks and the nursery is looking like this
at the moment.
And a little collage of how my bump has grown.
Can you tell I love hats?
