It hit me, today, that I have exactly seven weeks left before I move. That means, exactly seven weeks to use all my fabrics (because I unfortunately can't bring them with me overseas!)
To help me stay focused, I am committing myself -- right here, right now -- to the completion of 8 projects in 7 weeks.
Is this reasonable? Maybe not.
Am I up for the challenge? Absolutely!
Details of my crazy project:
1- Make this shirt wearable. I found it at a second-hand store and I just love the round collar, the contrast between the light blue and the white, and yes, the puffy sleeves. Although I will be making them a lot less puffy and less 80's. It think it has great potential!
2- Make a 60's blouse from this mint green cotton (although this picture really doesn't do justice to its colour).
3- Turn this ankle-length wool blend skirt into a pencil skirt for winter. Also a vintage find.
4- Make the "Andrew sweater" for my boyfriend Olivier, as seen on Burda Style. This is member Kitzler's version.
5- Make something of this great 80's print fabric. A type of crepe I think.
6- Turn this dress into a top (an easy project for a little break).
7- Make something out of this print that I am absolutely in love with. I'm thinking a skirt, but I don't know yet.
8- Make a dress with this. I have a strong vision for this one!
Let me remind you: I will do all of this in seven weeks. I am counting on you, Readers, for your support and comments.
And now, as my sister would say:
