I have added a blog roll of sewers who have told me they are going to be sewing along on the white shirt project.
I have only added those who have specifically said, sign me up. If you would like to be added to this list please let me know. There are no real rules here of course - random sewers (like myself) welcome.
I will also note that some sewers who don't blog are also sewing along. For those of you in that category please send me some shots or commentary on your own projects and I will post them here too if you like.
I am working away on the Mouse Suit for baby Scarlett for this weekend and then I am starting my first shirt - November 1st is my launch date.
My concern today is fabric sourcing. I am going to call Michael in Baltimore for a chat.
I really want to use the restrictions of this project - one colour and one garment type, to fully explore fit, fabric, and technique.
I want to find some good quality classic fabrics. Any other thoughts on where to get those would be appreciated.
Who has pique these days? Oxford cloth? Swiss dot? (remember Swiss dot).
I am only going to work these one idea, one pattern, and one fabric at a time, rather than generating a to-do list.
I want to see where this leads me, and to see what other sewers make, and where they lead me too.
- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and I write a monthly humour/sewing column for the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=barbara+emodi&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abarbara+emodi
