Sewing? What sewing?

It seems that I haven't been doing any sewing lately, but that's not entirely true. I have made some progress on my Ruby Slip (click the badge in the sidebar for more info). Slow progress. Like perhaps, I have turned on my machine for 10 minutes on a couple of days.

Still, the skirt part is cut on the bias, and it has to hang, right? I'm loving my lace bodice part. My lace wasn't quite wide enough, but realized that the only piece affected was the bodice side, so I used Chris' method, and just added a little bit. You'd have to get really close to be able to tell.

Today, I was going to hem the skirt, after I serged the side seams. I changed the thread to gray, and have finally come to the conclusion that I need to get my serger serviced. The tension discs for one of the needle threads just will not hold the thread, and that makes everything go wonky.

Perhaps that will force me to cut out a new blouse project, and fix the zipper on Kyle's jacket this weekend.


  1. Hi! I just found your blog by accident when I was looking for other people that had made up the Simplicity 2369(i know that's not this post). I love your version by the way! Though I agree, belt buckles don't work well with knit wrap dresses.

    Did you do an FBA on the Ruby slip?

    I live in the Atlanta area as well, so its nice to see another local blogger. Cheers!

  2. It's looking pretty Elle! Melissa found the same thing with her lace, so I need to change the width - it's not you!
