I have actually finished a couple of projects lately that I need to show you, I just havn’t gotten around to photographing them yet.  So I thought that I would show you what I have been working on lately so you don’t think that I am a total slacker.

New Look 6576 and SeeKateSew’s Ruffle Top Diaper Cover

This is my go to pattern when it comes to girl baby gifts.  I have probably made it 10 times.  I have a ton of friends having girls right now so I have been making up a few versions of this dress using some fun fabric that I ordered from JoAnns and some mint green lining.  I have made it enough times that it takes me only one nap time start to finish to make one. 
I am also trying out SeeKateSews awesome free pattern for a ruffle top diaper cover to go with it.  I am at a bit of a standstill until I can get to a store that carries thread and buttons (harder than you would think around here).  So I am planning a little trip to the garment district soon.

McCalls 6611

I finally cut out my muslin for the angled blazer.  I am going to have to rely heavily on my dressform for this one since I am expecting (although I totally plan on wearing it open while pregnant too).  I am expecting this one to be a bit of a handful which is why I think I have been so reluctant to get started.  Hopefully I am wrong.

    I’ve been eyeing the blazer pattern lately too! I have some metallic coated linen in my stash. Can’t wait to see your version! What fabric are you planning?
