Lots of excuses & a recipe

Well, so I’ve been absent from this blog for quite a long time. I do have quite a long list of excuses why, but I won’t bore you with that. Let me just mention that “master thesis” is one of them…

Sewing has taken a break for the moment. I do however have one of my planned projects almost finished. Yes, the McCall M5880 dress.

It just doesn’t fit right at the moment so I’ll have to take it apart again and take it in under the arms.

The next post will contain a recipe I just love for its easiness and deliciousness. Mini chocolate cakes with a liquid filling! Mmmhh….

Joining the Pattern Challenge

With all those still unused sewing patterns lying around, I just had to join the Pattern Challenge over at Come And See The Seitz.

Alternative

Sarah asks of the participants of the challenge to put into writing our goals, so here are mine. With summer coming up (I know, I know, it’s still quite a bit away.), I’d like to finish the following projects (the patterns and some of the fabrics I’ll use are already in my possession):

The patterns are (from left to right):
1. McCall’s M5880 2. Amy Butler’s Cabo Halter 3. McCall’s M5653
4. Vogue V8553 5. McCall’s M5662 6. Vogue V1086
7. McCall’s M5586 8. McCall’s M5425 9. Vogue V8241

I think I’m going to be able to give quite a realistic review of these patterns, as they are mostly labelled as being “very easy”, so ideal for me as a newbie to sewing clothes. I’ll take lots of pictures and quite a few of them will probably include a seam ripper, but hey, that’s the way to learn, isn’t it?
