With all of the birthday celebrating going on here this past weekend Nana was visiting again...and the sewing machine made it's way onto the table, and lovely lovely things took shape!
We finished this amazing Obi Sash, from another pattern in Weekend Sewing: More Than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Stitching. I really loved the multi-colored bright Marimekko fabric that I had bought here years ago, and had been waiting for just the right project to come along to let the fabric shine. As a sash, the fabric makes the perfect colorful accent for so many of my outfits! I love it.
Amazingly, Nana also whipped up this turquoise tunic dress, modeled on one of my favorite tunic dresses from American Apparel, using a linen repurposed from another dress that I rarely wore. Another perfect repurposing.
I am loving these new style options, adding a little zing to my closet. I've got a feeling they'll be on heavy rotation.
