To Do Tuesday August 1

Welcome to To Do Tuesday August 1


Christine at Stitch ALL The Things hosts To Do Tuesday.  TDT is a great weekly motivator to finish projects and (for me) to keep my To Do List manageable.

My list from July 25:

1.  Dresses for Emma
2.  Bahama Mama Bikini Bottoms
3.  “I Make Pretty Things” Slim Fit Raglan
4.  Pattern Test for Reagan
5.  Pattern Test for Reagan
6.  The Duchess High-Low Skirt Blog Tour Post

What a great, productive week!  Harley went back to Corvallis on Wednesday for orientation at school, and she leased an apartment.  She’s nearly got the hang of all this “adulting”, I’m sure!  We will be moving her into her new digs on September 1st!

1.  BSD Maggie Dresses for Emma

Emma’s dresses were cut and ready to be sewn together last week, and that is how they have remained.  I’m hoping to get them finished and mailed off to her this week.


2.  Bahama Mama Bikini Bottoms

Still not made.  We went to the river with friends Saturday for Todd’s birthday, and I wore the Boy Short bottoms I already made.  They are super cute and comfortable.  Until they get wet, and then they ride up and don’t sit correctly.  I spent the entire day fidgeting with them.  They will be cute to wear dry under the bikini bottoms when I get them made.  The experience at the river Saturday has definitely upped the priority on these!

3.  “I Make Pretty Things” Slim Fit Raglan

DONE!  FINISHED!  FINITÉ!  For something so simple to sew, this sure took a long time.  I love it, though, so it was worth the wait!

4.  Pattern Test for Reagan #1

Final pictures were due yesterday, so I’m thinking it might release this week.  It is super cute, and I can’t wait to share it!

5.  Pattern Test for Reagan #2

DONE!  This pattern I was testing is the Tara Twist Top from Made for Mermaids, and I wrote a blog post about it here:  Tara Twist Top Pattern Testing.  I made three version for Reagan; sleeveless, 3/4 sleeve, and 3/4 sleeve with the twist.


6.  The Duchess High-Low Skirt Blog Tour Post

The final item on my list was a blog tour post for The Duchess High-Low Skirt designed by Jessica Hooley at the Do It Better Yourself Club.  My Blog Tour Post is published and gives details about the pattern.

My to-do list for this week:

1.  Dresses for Emma
2.  Bahama Mama Bikini Bottoms
3.  Pattern Test for Reagan
4.  Dress Pattern Test
5.  P4P/M4M Capsule Wardrobe & MilyMae Fabrics Showcase


What are you working on this week?

One thought on “To Do Tuesday August 1

  1. Wow, lots of sewing done this week! I saved be reading your posts about the high-low skirt and to read a little later today or tomorrow. Love how they turned out, especially that skirt! The raglan shirt turned out fantastic! I love it!
