Ahoy there sewing mateys! | Cathe
Because I'm not a total unreasonable taskmaster, the ladies who contribute to the Sew Weekly are allowed to sit out challenges from time to time. Adey, on vacation, handpicked Cathe as the community member who she'd like to take her place for the week. Cathe has been an active member of The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle and it's a pleasure to have her share her latest creation!
Fabric: Linen Viscose blend and Cotton Jersey
Pattern: (a book) "Twinkle Sews" by Wenlan Chia, published in 2009, pattern "Take Manhattan" and New Look 6838 (long sleeve t-shirt)
Notions: burr rivets (at corners of pocket)
Time to complete: both shirts and a muslin probably 10 hours…maybe 11, could be 12??
First worn: in these pictures
Wear again: absolutely!
Total cost: I would guess around $50, some of this was from my stash including the New Look pattern.
Hi Friends, while Adey is away I decided to play…or something like that! I was asked to sit in for Adey this week, oh boy fun! For the nautical challenge I made a long sleeve t-shirt and an over shirt. And my mood board, why not, they're fun! http://pinterest.com/cathej/nautical/
There are lots of yummy patterns in this book, so the price $24.95 doesn't seem so steep.
For the love of vintage I'm sharing a great picture of my parents on their first boat, a Chris Craft run-about…this is pre-me. My life has been full of boats from motor boats to sailboats which I love…but as you point out I live in the Mid West. Ah don't despair, it's the land-O' lakes…that is about 10,000 lakes, plenty of water around here!
So let's get crackin' and find the perfect boat!
A lovely sailboat! It could certainly fit my needs…
Would it be terrible to take this baby out for a spin? I don't think the owner would care…to much!
Ahoy there! More boats to be had!
Let me help you dock that boat! Seriously this could be the boat!
Umm, First Mate Cooper, declares he "hates" water…I always thought he was more of a cat than a dog. Alright maybe we need to rethink the boat…
So there you have it, my perfect boat!
Yes I totally knocked off a Saint James Breton shirt!
