Getting Organized & Carnival of Skirts

Getting Organized

My problems all started when I looked for one of the Vogue Patterns that I purchased last month - THAT I CANNOT FIND!  OMG!

When I started sewing last December, I had a few basic sewing supplies, a sewing machine, and enough fabric for one project.  I was able to easily store everything in one nightstand drawer. Well, almost a year later - my sewing patterns, fabric and notions - are literally, all over the place. 

I've been getting organized and once I figure it all out - I'll be sure to post pictures. 

Faye's Carnival of Skirts

Although, I want to complete two skirts...  But, in 15 days.  This would be my absolute fastest sewing ever!  Besides, that - with my work schedule I normally only sew on Saturday, Sunday, and / or Monday.  I felt way too much pressure. 

So, I didn't join Faye's Carnival of Skirts sew-a-long.  But, I'm sewing-a-long.  I have two fabrics picked out.  I have already pre-treated one fabric, and I will pre-treat the second fabric and the lining fabric today.  Unfortunately, I need a few things to finish these skirts - so, I'll place an order from today as well (I should have that by the weekend). 

I plan on using my TNT skirt pattern V8541 for both skirts.  Technically, it's my only skirt pattern - however, I've nearly perfected the making of it - since, I've made it three times (Black, Purple, Pink).  I plan on adding a lining to both skirts (the pattern is unlined). 

Needles Up,

  1. Glad to see you're sewing along. I probably won't finish two skirts in two weeks, but eh, whatareyagonnado? Just keep sewing!

    1. Ha-ha! That's a great point.
      I am steadily working towards getting at least 1 skirt completely finished before the sew-a-long ends.
