Yes, like many of you my first projects on a sewing machine were all clothing. I actually sewed garments pretty exclusively until I discovered quilting 5 years ago, and it's all been downhill from there.
Well recently I looked in my closet and I decided it was time to sew up a few things for myself.
First up was the Ruby Top by Made-By-Rae. I already had her Washi Dress pattern (see the post here) and I love it so I figured it was time to give Ruby a try.

|Ruby Top #2|
|Ruby Top #3 (This time in KNIT!)|
|Sleeve or No Sleeve?|
And because I was feeling confident, I pulled out a WIP from last year's Selfish Sewing Week and I grit my teeth and finished it.
That's right, the Miz Mozelle dress I blogged about in September is finally finished. I had to carefully pull the collar off and make a new one that laid correctly. And let me tell you, taking the collar off was no easy feat. I accidentally ripped a giant hole in the dress, but I was able to cut the neckline just a little bit lower and make the collar just a little bit wider and it all worked out.
It might actually be better, because I can ::just:: manage to maneuver the neckline so I'm able to nurse while wearing this dress. I wore this one to church this past Sunday and it was so comfortable. Win!
And guess what?! Selfish Sewing Week is just around the corner and I have some pretty big plans. So mark your calendars and plan to set aside time to sew something for yourself April 28-May 3
