I drafted the pattern and made the dress.  I am very happy at how it came out.  I spent yesterday sewing another dress from that pattern.  Still have to hem it, but it should be finished sometime this week.

Y'all, I turned in my last assignment yesterday and pulled out my machine today! I only made masks for my parents, but I sewed today. I also cleaned and organized my sewing closet. So. Much. Fabric. I can't wait to do some more sewing. No excuses, I have plenty of time since we're still under lockdown. Even when we come off, I'll stay home because I have chronic lung disease and don't want to expose myself unnecessarily.

 

And, I was un-furloughed at work! Perfect timing--I got to finish the semester and the program.

I decided to take tote bags using an old Holland America canvas bag for the pocket.  I made one for my sister, and am starting mine today.  I started off deconstructing the HAL bag, then dying it.  I dyed Stacy’s orange, and will dye mine fushia.  I made sure to serge the edges before dying to minimize the fraying.  I really liked how Stacy’s came out.

Nice job, Lisa! HAL should commission you to design and make totes for their on board shops! Yours are unique and colorful.

I have been officing from home since March 16th.  I will be back in the office every other week starting June 8th.  This week I decided to search my scraps and make coordinating neck gaiters.  I will be styling at the office.

Lisa,

 

How do you wear the neck gaiters ?  I have never seen them before.

Basically, it's a 19"x19" square piece of knit fabric that you serge or zig zag stitch into a tube.  I just wear it around my neck when I don't need a face covering and pull it up when I do.  I have used them when rowing in the winter to protect my face.  I will take a few selfies and post.

Thanks, Lisa, for including the measurements for the gaiter. These are a great idea to use in place of a conventional mask.

Just remember the knit needs to have horizontal stretch or you will not get it over your head.
