Sewing

Many of you know that I like to be crafty. Creating and assembling are another passion of mine. In doing so, it helps me stop, focus, and it clears my mind. I get to focus on the tactile details, while my mind simultaneously taps into the creative. Last weekend I made a fancy apron for a friend. This weekend, I hope to finish up a shirt 
from some purple jersey knit fabric I picked up this past weekend. I'm making the short sleeve, although now that I think about it, I probably could've made the 3/4 sleeve since it'll soon be Autumn.

Anyway, with that said, I'm going to be participating in my very first a frock by friday put on Kathleen Frances over at Grosgrain. I simply adore her style and taste and I looove many of the dresses she designs over at Shabby Apple (speaking of, they are having a sale. Take 20% off most items. Enter Summer20 at checkout. --Excludes Manhattan, Skyscraper, Bridesmaid, Accessories & can't be combined with other offers.)

Whoa, talk about a serious side track. Yes, I'm going to make the Anda dress from Burdastyle. It's also my first Burda pattern. I've never printed anything at home, so I don't know if I should attempt to do it myself or opt for the copy store printing. What do y'all think?

I'm looking forward to it and especially the finished product. I can see myself wearing this on the weekends when a simple t-shirt isn't going to cut it. Anyway, wish me luck! If you want to participate too, be sure to get your own pattern here, then follow Kathleen Frances' steps each day.
