Did You Have A Happy Three-Day Holiday Last Weekend?

Or as we sewists call it, More Sewing Time?

I had a goal for Memorial Day weekend.

1. Finish up my third Grainline Moss muslin.
2. Cut and sew a Grainline Scout from a new print rayon challis.
3. Cut and sew another New Look 6977 top in a knit remnant from my stash.

Amazingly, I was ahead of myself, I already had a progress post on the Moss muslin written up and a new pattern review of New Look 6216 set to publish Monday.

By the way, behold my updated wardrobe plan:

Yes, I know! I changed it...again. I substituted in two new (quick & easy) items but I did finish a project before I did that. With the recent high summer temperatures, working on fitting a knit ponte (!) dress with sleeves and stitching up a moleskin (!) coat just didn't make any sense. I was nearly done with the dress but with nowhere to wear it anytime soon, I will leave finishing it and starting the coat for late summer/early fall.

Best of all, by finishing these two tops this week I am suddenly at a 40% completion rate!

This first fabric is a black & white rayon challis print I bought last Saturday at Jo-anns and was a finished Grainline Scout by Tuesday.

The second fabric, a remnant from my Burdastyle "Let's Twist Again..." top, was made into a New Look 6977 top by Friday. Aren't TNT patterns the best?
