My world of sewing

So I wrapped up my sewing class in mid August and have been working on some projects at home since then. The class was for learning 2 basic garments - skirt-top and salwar-suit. It helped tremendously to get the basics right and steer me towards the right direction in terms of exploring the rest on my own.

As promised in my previous post, here is a small list of my initial projects (in chronological order) in the sewing world along with some pictures:

1. Top for lil N
2. Patternless free flowing skirt
3. Re-purposed hubby's pants to make shorts for him
4. Altered one of my nighties
5. Basic Salwar suit (kurta and salwar both)
6. Sleeveless kurta with a fancy neck (using paper canvas)
7. Patchwork Purse for lil N (made out of leftover fabric)
8. Another kurta for my sil (similar to what I made in # 6)
9. Completed a half finished night gown for mil
10. Assisted friends in altering the length and slits of their kurtas

Lately now, I have been working on a new frock for lil N with left over fabric. Linking this to Patty's 'Weekly Story' here! So whaddaya think so far?
