Sewing Inspiration – McCalls 6559

Ok… I really need to get back into the sewing groove once more. A few months ago, I’d saved McCalls 6559 to my iPhone.

To be fair, time has been a huge factor into why I have not been sewing. The teeny bit of time I do have has been spent knitting or working with paper crafts. And while both give me joy, I miss sewing…


I promptly forgot about that as I went about my activities; however, this morning I discovered the bookmark and I pulled up the pattern. Can I just say, that I love that print on the right! Oh my goodness, if I found that material, I’d be all over that.

I don’t have this pattern, but it’s given me an idea of what I’d like to see in my own sleeveless knit maxi dress.  I adore maxi dresses and skirts! I’m also going to test out Megan Nielson’s, How To Sew A Knit Neckline Binding.

The only downside is that I won’t be able to sew until next weekend. My daughter and I will be away most of the weekend and there’s absolutely no way that I’m lugging one of my machines with me. However, I will be bringing along some of my knitting and perhaps some of my beadwork also. We’ll see!

    I know right? I saw your challenge on your site and I do believe I will enter. I’m planning to start sewing my sleeveless maxi dress next weekend. I have no time this weekend, since I’ll be away.
