Trying to decide...

I'm writing this as I try to decide on my next project. I did just complete a very simple dress (New Look 6602). Although, this did take a little longer than anticipated since the fabric was thinner than I thought, so I had to line the dress. But I want to do something different. I'm just not sure what. I have so many patterns and so much material that I just need to go for it! Pick something and get started! I'm still determined to work my way through a lot of the fabric stash I have. But sometimes I look at a piece of material and try to think of the "perfect" or best use for it. As a result, it sits. I'm sure I'm not the only person that has dealt with this. Anyway, here's a picture of my completed project.

Quick project...

I completed a quick project recently while I'm working on completing a dress I'm making. This skirt used to be a maxi dress that I never wore and really didn't like. But, I liked the material. So I got the scissors and cut off the top part and, cut out the elastic, and remade the casing from the top. I didn't do anything to the bottom of the skirt since it was already hemmed. Very simple.

I hope to have the dress I'm making completed soon. I took a break the other day and never got back to sewing. Then I'll have to plan some other pieces (tops).

Have a great weekend everyone!
