Dana's Adventures in Knitting

Sunday, August 06, 2006


Wow, I suck at blogging. At least there's a lot to write about. Let's see, I made a dress for the fourth of July. It's the 2.0 version of that little Fiji dress from my last post.

I've worn it quite a bit.
Then I reconstructed a pair of jeans using a tutorial I found on Craftster.

Then I made a little wrap dress out of very cute quilters cotton. I can't seem to find a picture of the fabric anywhere so there's no I'll just have to wait until the camera gets new batteries.

I tried making a pretty fifties vintage dress, but I bought the wrong size pattern. It was too big! Fortunately I only cut out the lining. I was able to put a waistband on the skirt and wear it. To make it more interesting I sewed random swirly patterns on it with Chzimi thread. It shrinks when you steam it. That thread was so slippery. It made my machine spastic. I love the effect on the skirt though.

My latest project is Simplicity 4074, a knit wrap dress. I am using a heavy grey knit fabric. The only thing left to do is to hem it and tack the front facings and cuffs into place. I even bought some pretty black pumps to go with it. I can't wait for it to cool off so I can wear it.

My next major project will be a military style jacket made with royal blue embroidered silk. I'm using Simplicity 4129 view B The main change I am making is that I am actually cutting out tabs for the front instead of putting lace on the jacket simulating flaps, and I am putting cuffs on the sleeves. I am also using some contrast piping in the tabs and in the princess seams. I need to buy a few more things for it so I can't really start it for a couple more weeks. Maybe my next project will be a petticoat. I want one to go under my white skirt and another , either dress or skirt and jacket. I found a whole bolt of taupe netting at the thrift store.

Oh well, that's about it. I hope this post isn't too rambling. Hopefully I won't take so long to post next time.
