Maybe it’s just my love of Halloween surfacing, but I often believe the number 13 gets a bad rap. Today I added the 13th committed person to the RTW Fasters’ page and decided it was time for an update.
These 13 women represent a diverse geographic area including three countries and several states scattered from Florida to California. They have been communicating about topics important to them as they sew themselves away from the retail madness, but more importantly they are sewing beautiful clothes.
Linda, living in a warm climate resists the t-shirts and crops scene, and recently completed this crisp periwinkle top.
Robin left her beginning sewing skills behind by making this very detailed and tailored jacket.
Speaking of jackets, Jilly sewed this fabulous Marcy T jacket boasting dozens of hooks and eyes.
When I began my RTW Fast, I made a top similar to Teri’s peasant top, but I like her’s much better and am inspired to try it again.
……and Carola’s dress brings back memories from this past summer. Carola recently completed Susan Khalje’s Couture Sewing Class by making this lovely dress for a Melbourne Cup luncheon.
In case you’re wondering about number 13, it’s Barbara who is fasting for a second year and shares a sewing blog with her daughter!
I’m privileged to share a year with these creative women who inspire me as they express their unique styles and gifts.
