Considering the number of unbearably hot days this month (worse in the workroom than anywhere else, even with AC) and the fact that I had a houseguest who distracted me from the act of sewing, if not from talking about it, a total of 5 pieces for July isn't too bad!
This month marked my first attempt at the Jalie 2908 jean, an attempt that will definitely be repeated because these will get some wear if and when it's ever cool enough to wear jeans again. I've got some stretch khaki in the stash, though, and I'm thinking about doing a pair in that because I need a pair of casual work pants and I can improve on the jeans with a better fly front zipper this time. And I still want to try them in non-stretch denim as well.
I also made the purple ladybug baby dress for my expecting friends, and have promised another dress for the upcoming baby shower. I haven't figured out which pattern I'm going to use yet, but it's got to be in a 6 month size because it's going to be her first Easter dress.
In the true experimental sewing category, I finished my first ever strapless dress for myself (proper review to follow). Now it just needs a matching shrug or jacket because it's not going to get a lot of wear as is.
But as experiments go, it was pretty successful.
In other words, I haven't fallen out of it.
Last but not least, I made 2 versions of one of my favorite dresses, BWOF 5/09 #113. The striped dress came out well, considering how it fought me, but the piped floral version that I just finished will definitely make it onto my year-end review as one of my favorite pieces for 2010. I LOVE that dress, but I think I'm going to retire the pattern for a while.
I also put together 6 beaded velvet scarves for the Christmas craft show, but those are just busywork for watching TV and don't count too much as "real" sewing.
