Just Checking In

There are no sewing pictures today. I needed to check in and up date my blog!! I do post more sewing pictures on Instagram.

I have been sewing. I thought I would try to take pictures of me modeling what I made, but it it was not as easy as I thought it would be. I will keep practicing using my tripod. I have read some good posts on photography for blogs, and they were helpful. I am so thankful for those in the sewing community that share their knowledge.

What I have sewn is summer pieces. It has been hard to step into fall. We had such great summer weather on the East coast. I have one summer skirt that I need to hem and then I am on to fall sewing. 

Next up for me is NL6230. It is a raglan sleeve sweat shirt top. It is shown in color block. The sleeves are in a different color than the body of the shirt. I have some lace type knit that I will use for the front and back.  Also to continue with color blocking, I want to make V8950. This has a yolk that continues to the top of the sleeve.

Also, I need to make a few skirts. I have some ponte that I want to use. My question is with ponte do you line your skirts? Do you use a thin jersey knit to line them? I would appreciate any and all thoughts on this question!!

Thanks for reading my picture less post!! 
Have a wonderful day of sewing and creating!
