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!
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.
