Selfish Sewing Week Preparations

Next week is Selfish Sewing Week and, while I do have some issues with the name, I plan to participate because it is a good occasion to get some sewing done for myself.

This year Selfish Sewing week is on Kollabora.  If you haven't visited  Kollabora, it is a pretty cool site where "makers" can share their projects.  You can see my projects here.  If you are on Kollabora you can link up your projects to the Selfish Sewing Week feed by putting "Selfish Sewing Week" in the "Inspired by" box for your project.

I have several projects cut out and ready to go - more than I can probably finish in one week, but better to be over-prepared than under-prepared!

I have a long sleeve tee cut out using the free Plantain t-shirt pattern from Deer and Doe.

I also have a shirt cut out using the same Boatneck top pattern as this shirt.  It is the same kind of fabric as well - a Stretch ITY Jersey knit from

I also have this shirt that I cut out ages ago - it is a sleeveless cowl neck top that is self drafted by modifying a basic t-shirt pattern.

Finally I have a couple things that are partly sewn that I would like to finish. 

This is a sleeveless top with pleats at the neckline which is also self-drafted from a basic t-shirt pattern.  It needs the neckband fixed, the armholes finished and to be hemmed.

This skirt I was making from Melly Sews' instructions on drafting a skirt. I think it still needs to be taken in a little and needs a waistband and lining and needs to be hemmed.  I really doubt I will get to this one, but we will see.

Will you be sewing something for yourself this week?
