White Shirt Project


I am still around...just haven't posted in a very long time.

                                                 *************************

To get back into sewing I thought I 'd join "The never too many shirts project" that Barbara from "Sewing on the Edge" is starting.
I think this will be a  great project to do and  I have so many shirt patterns that I want to make.

 *********************

I bought a Uniquely You dress form from Trimmings Dress Maker in Montreal.
I made the cover ~ with some assistance from Claire
I truly appreciated her help. Claire is so generous with her time and so knowledgeable . It was wonderful having her expert advice. Thank You again Claire.
Making the cover to fit me was a really fun project to do and I truly love the results.
I will  post a picture of Annabelle shortly.

Thankyou for bringing this to my attention! I've popped over to Barbara's blog and asked if I can join in too...
I look forward to seeing your white shirt. And, of course, a picture of Annabelle...
Thankyou again for your sweet and ever uplifting comments which make my day whenever I read them, you are such a kind person!

I have needed a white shirt forever. I can never find the right fabric. I made a spotted one last weekend that I love, but I really need a white one! Looking forward to seeing yours.

I am glad to hear of you. Hope everything alright with you. I know blogging is so time consuming that some time there are more important things to do first.

Oooh I'll be glad when it's next year and I can join in with the lovely sewalongs in Blogland.

I'm very envious that I won't be in on this one but really can't wait to see what you make.

Enjoy!

I am happy that you might have a bit of sewing time. And congratulations on getting your dress form padded out. I can only imagine how valuable Claire's help must be - she does such wonderful work.
