It's official, my sewing space has been taken over by UFOs... Un-Finished Objects. While cleaning up after not for a really long time, I laid them all out nicely and photographed them... And I was kind of saddened by the numbers and types of things that need to be done. SO many of these would be so easy!
-grey pants: hem
-wine skirt: Buttons and a hem
-McCall 5801: Collar and put it all together... Oh, and the princess seams from hell.
-blue knit dress: take in, shorten
-Easter dress: Take in properly, fix facings, add the contrast, make cute 50s-style bolero/jacket to match
-wine dress: The hem is pinned in... I just have to stitch it. And fix a belt out of the old fabric. And cut the old hem off and add my fun hem lace.
-Red pencil skirt: teeny little bit to take in at the hips, and it'll be GREAT for fall.
-Pink dress: Really, this could still be a work-in-progress. My self-drafted top didn't work well... at all. As in, it'll take a friend helping pin the things behind me after I elasticize some parts and do some other things to make it work... Great concept, it just needs help.
-2 pairs of pants to take in for a friend. He's too skinny and tall for his own good.
-a dress that really needs some strap carriers
-a bag for summer that probably shouldn't be counted as a UFO yet either... but that's beside the point.
12 things. And they'd all be great additions to my closet(except for my friend's pants) and get worn on a regular basis. And I'm guessing I'm not the only one with this kind of pile. So confession time and motivation time. Anybody want to do a UFO challenge? I'm thinking of having Finish-it Fridays. Where you do your best to post a picture of something every Friday. We could all encourage one another! Wouldn't it be nice?? Comment below if you're in.
