Sewn!

I haven't done much sewing in the last, uh, ten years or so. I now have an apartment with plenty of space to use for cutting out fabric and setting up an ironing board, so I'm trying to ease myself into sewing. So far that mostly consists of stockpiling fabric and patterns, but I've finally made some more substantial progress.

I started super-simple with a couple of pillows. This project was supposed to be a confidence-builder, so I even avoided zippers by using an envelope-style back, making it so the pillow can be slipped in/out of the cover.

My next project was this top from Built by Wendy Simplicity pattern 3964. It was still pretty easy (and zipperless!), but did have a few challenges, mainly the corners on that contrast inset piece. I like the top though, especially the sleeves, and hope to eventually make the dress version of it.
