Lynda's Square Foot Project: Material World

[week one's sewing project made from a fabric stash find]

It was a busy October, but I'm happy to report that last month I managed to give away 24 items of clothing and one large bag of fabric. As I was packing up the clothing (which no longer fits me) and fabric (which I had stored in my prop kit), I realized two things: The remainder of my wardrobe is made up of 75 percent linen or cotton dresses and I have too much fabric sitting around not being used.

Therefore I have decided to make November "Sewvember." My challenge is to see how many items I can make for myself using existing textiles. My hope is that by the month's end I will have added an item or two to my closet and put a dent into my fabric collection.

[the inspiration: Svetta Dresher's Marrakech dress]

In no way could I ever come close to producing anything like the pieces that Svetta Dresher creates. I love her timeless and simple designs and the fabrics chosen (linens, cottons, hemp, etc.) to make them. I don't have the same vision, talent or imagination that Dresher has but I am happy with my dress, and it cost me nothing to make. You can see more of her creations at Pipsqueak Chapeau.
