***I added a Copycat Challenge page to the header linky area! Prizes are listed and I’ll be adding entrants photos/blog links there as we get them so email us your photos whenever you’re ready!***

If anyone follows my Sewing Inspiration board on Pinterest, I’m sure you’ve noticed that there are projects by the buttload on my to-do list. There are some that I pinned just because I liked one detail of it, some that I may want to copy someday, and some that Ineedtomakeimmediatelylikerightnow. So when Erin and I were discussing organizing another Copycat Challenge, I had a minor moment of panic when I realized I had to pick only a few projects to do for the challenge. I ended up just choosing the three that I had most recently bought fabric for, and was most excited to dive into.

Except then two weeks went by and all I’ve done is cut out a bodice for one, tape/cut a pattern for another, and purchase a pattern that *may* work for the back of the third. Motivation? Hello? Where did you go?

And suddenly there are all these other projects screaming out to me!

As much as I love flouncy skirts, sometimes I feel a little ridiculous at work. This is cute and more subtle!

Ignoring previous flouncy skirt comment, Boyfriend and I were watching New Girl and I saw this dress again and now I need it. I may have ordered a black bow applique from eBay.

I pinned this dress ages ago and found the most perfect linen rayon blend in a gorgeous minty blue and it’s been just sitting on my shelf ever since.

I think I pinned this dress around the time I discovered Pinterest. Last week I finally finished my remake of Favorite Dress That Shrank, and was debating making another one in a different color. I had found the perfect heavy knit fabric at the fabric store in red and I realized yesterday when going through my old pins that I could totally re-make the same tank dress and just add a white collar to it!

I have no explanation for this but I think I need a jumper. I blame Katie from Skunkboy for being so damn adorable. It just seems like the perfect summer dress!

The moral of the story is that I need to stop online shopping and start sewing.

 

PS Like my new social media icons? I got bored of the old ones so I drew new ones. I think they’re fun.

  1. That minty blue one! Oh i so want to attempt something like that for summer… but there are many other things yet to sew! I used to copy heaps of the stuff from Urban Outfitters because the postage to Australia was so expensive! But i don’t care much for them now
