M I A - kind of ....

Despite what the lack of posts would suggest, I've actually been getting stuck into a lot of sewing.

I entered the 2 month Stash Challenge at Patternreview sewed just over 54metres of stash. You can catch up here if you're interested. This gave me a chance to get some home dec out of the way, some much needed pet gear sewn and a headstart with a travel wardrobe.


 
 
I was on a sewing roll!!
 
This past two weeks, Patternreview had a Menswear Challenge which gave me the chance to sew a couple of shirts for DH.
 
                                                                                                                         
 
They are both from the same KwikSew pattern 3422. I had 2 pieces of chambray in the stash - one pale blue, the other a darker blue.   The light blue is topstitched in white, while the darker blue is topstitched in navy. Both shirts have flat-felled seams throughout.

Hi Janine, I was thinking of you just the other day. You have been busy - looking at a close up of all your little pictures, everything looks so superb.

It is never a bad thing if actual sewing overtakes blogging! You have been busy and the men's shirts look really well constructed.
