A Bit Overwhelming

Well, there are days when you wonder what you should create.

And then there are days like today, when you want to create everything.

Today, I would like to:

1. Finish that t-shirt reconstruction going on, haven't had time. (see photos previous post)

2. And then there are Barbie's jeans that she wants made into trousers -- I want to do a tutorial video on that. (try back again next Wednesday)

3. And then there's this pattern that I really like and want to do for myself:

(view b, the sleeveless green outfit)

4. And this one, which I've already sized and is ready to cut out:

(using vintage fabric I found at the Scrap Exchange in Durham)

5. And Barbie has wanted this dress for awhile, and I've sized her pattern and it's ready to cut out:

(the sleeveless dress, in a gorgeous aqua silky)

6. And Babydoll wants this dress by Isaac Mizrahi copied:

(I already have the fabric, and it's a black/white floral print -- check out the Liz Claiborne outlet stores to find this dress -- it's gorgeous!)

7. And the twins need graduation dresses to wear under their robes -- I'm thinking halter tops, maybe some white and black? (any suggestions, anyone?)

8. And I really need to make my black pants into trousers, (back to the tutorial on Wed)

9. And I need to dye my trouser jeans so they're all the same color, (RIT + a big sink of hot water and salt should do it -- I'd use my washer but it's a front-loader)

10. And I have several scarves to make! (future tutorial on taking silky dresses apart)

And I need aprons in the Etsy shop! (in my spare time)

Good grief. I suppose I'd better stop blogging and start sewing!

What are YOU working on today?



  1. Jen, you are definitely needing a 25 hour day... at least.
    take lots of photos of the projects. your tutorials are great.

  2. No kidding. I got the black trousers done - had to play piano for a choir concert, and I needed a pair of black pants!

    Thanks for the comment!


  3. Your list is just a overwhelming as my list.

    I have it written on paper but I have not blogged about it yet.

    I have completed a pair of knit pants and a silky blouse with the bubble type short sleeve I really like that. I also finished a knit summer dress with short sleeves.

    I have not posted any pictures because I cannot find my USB cord. I hate it when hubby using my computer.

    Wishing you the best on the completion of your list.


That'll be two cents for your opinion please. : )
