Sewing, Sewing, Sewing

Here are two items for my Downtown Date collection. 

I am sewing simple pieces and it still takes a lot of time! 

Last week, I finished a silk top.

In a way, this reminds me a lot of playing violin. One must practice quite a bit to get fluid and expressive.

So it is with sewing.

They are both noisy pursuits, too.


  1. Oh boy! You are a brave one. Sewing two SWAP. Wow! Very impressive. I understand how you about it taking a lot of time. That not a bad thing. Your custom made garments are especially fitted for you. It takes time. The two pieces finished look great and fit you well. I'll be checking in on you from time to time.

    Happy Sewing!

  2. That's a beautiful top, Robin, and the colour suits you! I'm amazed with your energy - sewing two Swaps seems ... huge!

  3. You are doing well! You will no doubt tackle the renovations in the same spirit. I wish I had half of your energy!

  4. You look great in your outfit.
    I'm with Vicki on this one, I too wish I had half your energy :)
    I've enjoyed all your garments as we seem to have similar tastes.If I wore civilian clothes to work I could see me "borrowing" from your closet :)

  5. Those are not so basic basics! They look great together. Your SWAP is going to be fantastic.

  6. I think it is always a great bet to start with a simple pattern and sew it up in quality fabric. Your outfit is gorgeous!

  7. ..."keep on sewing, keep on sewing, keep on sewing..." the finish line is near and YOU CAN do it!


Thanks for visiting my blog and Happy Sewing, xo
