Spring 2018 Pattern and Fabric Haul

I think just about every sewist in the US who could get to a Joann store went some time over Easter weekend to take advantage of the massive pattern sale. I know I did! Plus I grabbed some pre-cut pieces from Fabric Mart while they were on sale. I share it all with you in…

Bold Striped Duster: Simplicity 8546

I love the style of shirtdresses, but I very rarely wear them. For one they are usually made with cotton fabric and I hate to iron (which is one of the reasons I love to sew with knits). Also since I’ve started sewing they’ve just seemed like to much work to make…collars, cuffs, buttons and…

Black Blousy Bodysuit: Kommatia Ferri Bodysuit

I’ve been eyeing the Black Superwash Wool Jersey since it was listed and this seemed like a great application for it. It’s light weight gives the full top some drape but the wool content should be enough to keep me warm. When I first pulled the fabric out of the packaging I thought it was…

Abstract Leaf Cold Shoulder Dress: Vogue 9238

The cold shoulder definitely is the “on trend” look of the season, maybe year, and the pattern companies have definitely taken notice. All of the Big 4 companies have produced several patterns featuring the trend. I feel like the only one, but I’ve never been a real fan of the look. It’s not that I…

Dare to Bare – Vogue 1531

When the Vogue Spring ’17 patterns were released I knew I had to have and sew Vogue 1531. I was hot off the success of another vogue dress pattern (my little red dress from last month) so another fitted dress was appealing. I really loved the versatile cowl neck but the open back is definitely…

Quilted Floral Knit Bomber – McCalls 7100

In my  Fall/Winter To Sew List I told y’all I was in love with bomber jackets. I had started three at the time of that post. I have since completed those three but you can read here and here about what happened with those if you missed it. So though this is the fourth bomber jacket…
