May / June 2019 Recap

I’m back for round three of my bi-monthly recaps! I did a little better sewing up stash fabrics in May/June than I did in March/April, but still not quite as good as in January/February. I still participated in quite a bit of collaboration sewing again over this 2-month period, but I am so happy to say that I haven’t purchased any fabric since my IndieSew purchase in February / March! I’m really enjoying getting to make up some of my fabrics into garments I’ve had in my brain for awhile, and shopping my stash when I want to try a new pattern.

Bella Wrap Top

If you follow my Instagram stories, you may have seen that the Bella Wrap Top was in my January / February plans in a smoky blue rayon jersey that I had leftover in my stash. However, when I actually pulled my fabric out, I didn’t even have half the amount needed for the top! I was super bummed, because I’d been really excited about the idea of starting each couple of months with a clear plan for my sewing. Even though my original fabric didn’t work out, I was able to stick to my original pattern plans while trying out this fun speckled knit.
