More Sewing! Someone stop me … or not

So I admit. I think I am obsessed with sewing these days. I think it’s because I am too sick of winter and just desperate for spring. What better way to dream of spring than to sew some spring outfits right? What do you think of this one?

It’s Jalie 2921 Scarf Top with Burda 02-2010-104 Skirt.

The skirt was inspired by Dawn (cabinbaby on PatternReview) actually. Ever since I saw her whipping out her pencil skirts, I’ve been on the lookout for a pattern which would work for me. See pencil skirts don’t really work for me because I think they make me look too bottom heavy. In other words, they make my butt look too big. And I’d rather not have to put a slit for walking room.

So this skirt in February Burda fit the bill perfectly. It has all the features I like, A-Line, back zipper, yoke instead of a waistband. It even has pockets!

I can see myself making many more of these!

So what’s the count for this month? THREE garments. Not bad huh! Including the Jeans. And I have a new outfit to wear to Puyallup and my Belize vacation. It’s been a good month.

  7. I'm sewing for spring now, too. Sending the fall/winter UFO's to the doghouse until September… That skirt is GORGEOUS on your rockin' little figure! I don't think it makes you look bottom-heavy at all. Purple is SO your colour. Beautiful work! Don't stop!
