May Planning Brings June Sewing

May has been a planning month with very little sewing. This summer I took a look at what I need the most and actually prioritized my sewing. Now all I have to do is follow the plan and try not to get distracted by new ideas (lol). First on the agenda is the June Capsule Contest (sew along for me) that is sponsored by Elizabeth on StichersGuild. The rules are to make four garments and one accessory from June 1 to June 30. There cannot be any black items and one item can be purchased or made before June. Here are my fabrics for the "contest":
So far, I've got the patterns ready for 4 items. The yellow blouse is giving me some fitting problems (I'll keep the nasty words off this blog.). I'm working on a muslin and, hopefully, can get that ready soon. I have cut out the orange pants. At least one item is ready to go! Next week's sewing is a purse which is the small yellow and orange piece although the orange doesn't show very well in the picture. I figure I'll get one fairly easy item done first to encourage myself. My computer challenge is a story board to show the fabrics and patterns together. I think I know how to do that but we'll see!
