Hello, my fellow seamstresses! Are there male sewists that read my blog? I have never had one comment. That would be very cool, I have to say. Anyway, hello, and welcome to the fourth Sew it Chic in a Week.
Here are the results from my very scientific and official poll on pulling pins or leaving them:
I was surprised to see how many do, in fact, sew over pins. At least some of the time. I can’t remember seeing anyone indicate they do this, which is what prompted my poll. I wondered if my mother and I were alone in our pin pulling laziness.
I did get a cautionary tale from Linda from Nice Dress! Thanks I made it!! who has had a sewing machine needle break and fly right to her eye. Luckily she closed her eyes! How scary!
I am looking forward to seeing what everyone finished this week. I finished a very time consuming dress, but I do not have pictures yet to share with you. Pictures can really slow the blogging process down! I can write and write about the sewing process and how it turned out, but I know you all want to see it, so I will post it after I comb my hair and get some photos.
Here is a reminder of the very simple rules:
- Women’s garments only
- Made or blogged in the past week only – to avoid reposts.
- The party is open for a week, until next Friday, and I’ll open a new one Saturday. Feel free to link up every once in a while or try, like me, to complete a garment every week!
Optional additional ideas:
- If you are on a blogging platform that supports links, please link back to http://www.grayallday.com by using the Sew it Chic in a Week button in the sidebar, or just a simple mention in the text of your post. That way more people will find the party!
- Look around and share a comment or 2 with a neighbor. I don’t mind admitting that I savor blog comments as much as a handmade card. They are encouraging and build community.
