March has been a very bizarre month with everything that is going on in the world at the moment. With the restrictions currently in place in Australia I have been spending all of my time at home. I guess the upside of all of this is that at least I have had a lot of time to sew.
I managed to complete quite a projects, including two Seamwork Neenah turtleneck, two True Bias Ogden camis a Sew Over It Elsie dress and a Simple Sew Tania top.
I made two Neenah turtleneck, one made from a green and white stripe viscose jersey from Darn Cheap Fabric and the other was made from a green knit fabric I bought from Spotlight.
I really like this pattern, it is easy to sew up and it is very versatile, it can look quite different depending on fabric choice and I think it is very hackable. I’m keen to hack the pattern to have a mock neck.
I also made two Ogden Camis this month, one made from plain black rayon and the other from leaf print rayon left over from the Eastwood Pyjamas I made for my partner last month.
This pattern is a favourite of mine, like it is for many people. It is a great scrap buster, I have made six in total and they are such a versatile top.
I made a Tania Top in lemon print linen fabric from Spotlight, however I left out the keyhole neckline on this version.
I am really happy with how this project turned out, and I am happy to have a Tania top in my wardrobe that fits because I really like the pattern and have made a few in the past which no longer fit.
Elsie Dress hack
I also made an Elsie Dress which I hacked to have a lower neckline, wider shoulders and slightly gathered skirt. This project was somewhat successful, however I used my original Elsie pattern which is now too small.
March was a very productive month for sewing and I am very happy with all of my makes.
Thanks for reading!
