I called into Spotlight yesterday to pick up a few supplies in the hope of finishing up several projects before the start of the new year. The required supplies were unavailable but Georgia fell for a pretty bird print and I picked up a bright and cheery knit so the trip wasn't a total loss.
The pile of projects on the go were pushed aside to make a little top for Georgia. She has a sheer shirt that she loves and we used that as a starting point for this tank top. Even after a quick muslin the armholes have turned out a little tight, but she hasn't taken it off so I think it's ok. The arms and neckline have been finished with self fabric bias strips and the bottom has been narrow hemmed (the back is even but doesn't look like it because the wind blew it around).
I'm planning on clearing the decks a little bit before the start of the new year, having so many projects on the go is a bit frustrating. I'd hoped that having multiple projects ready would make life easier, but seeing the piles of fabric cut out actually makes me feel really restricted - I feel like I have to sew those projects next and because of that they lose their appeal. Hmmm - that's a bit perverse isn't it? Anyway, it was fantastic to have fabric come in and get sewn up so quickly but now it's back into the sewing room to keep working on some of those other projects.
