Rock Your Style: Burda 6829

Y’all know I love a wrap dress – faux, true, knit, woven doesn’t matter. If you remember my Wrap Battle last year, you know that Burda 6829 came out as the winner. So when Nikki (@SewingMyStyle) said one of the looks for Atlanta Sewing Style‘s photo shoot was going to be rocking your style, it…

Tip’s Thoughts: Vogue Summer 2019 Release

Alright I’m back again with summer patterns, this time from Vogue. Let’s jump right in! First up, the good! I will never understand why pattern companies pick some of the fabrics they do for their samples. I could have easily passed on V1626 as the details are lost in the textured white fabric. However when…

Tip’s Thoughts: Simplicity Spring 2019 Release

It’s that time again! Pattern release review time! Simplicity recently released the Summer 19 catalog. Let’s jump right in! Y’all know the drill, first up the good! Mimi has been killing it this year! I haven’t sewn up her shirt dress pattern from early spring (S8830) or the backless dress from spring (S8890) yet, but…

Tip’s Thoughts: McCall’s Spring Patterns

So first of all I have no idea how long these patterns have been out because McCall’s homepage still shows Early Spring as the newest patterns and these are definitely a new bunch. Regardless of when they released I’m going to review them so let’s jump in. First up as usual my likes: M7917 is…

What I’ve Sewn: 2019 First Qtr Recap

I really do these recaps for me. They remind me of what I’ve created , especially in those moments I’m dwelling on all the things I haven’t done. My start to 2019 has been slow (for me), but steady. In three months I’ve blogged about 13 makes including my first pair of overalls , a…

Made by a Fabricista: Simplicity 8330

Can you believe I didn’t have a LBD in my wardrobe? What kind of sewist am I? This had to be remedied fast. Thankfully Fabric Mart had this amazing black ponte in stock and I was perfect for S8330! The pattern does call for woven fabric, but with consideration a woven garment can often be…

Made by a Fabricista: McCalls 7833

I’m late to the M7833 party, but better late than never. I absolutely love it in this leopard print techno knit from Fabric Mart. Read about the modifications I made to the statement dress over on Fabric Mart’s Fabricista Blog. Pattern: McCalls 7833 Pattern Description:Pullover dresses have side gathers with either elastic or ribbon and…

Red Hot Wrap: New Look 6581

It’s no secret that I love a wrap dress, heck I did a whole comparison series (here). Unlike those, New Look 6581 is a true wrap dress! A feature that, for me, makes it even better. I ordered this red hacci knit from Fabric Mart because it was on sale and I love red. LOL…

Boyfriend Cardigan – SewSewDef Annie

Mimi G releases so many patterns and sewalongs that I love. That’s why there is always something of hers on my to-sew list, like this Annie cardigan. I’ve been meaning to sew this up for months. So the only good thing about this cold weather staying around it is gave me time to sew and…

Tip’s Thoughts: Spring Patterns from Simplicity

Finally, Simplicity’s Spring patterns have posted! I’m not sure what took so long because Mimi G and Gertie have been teasing their new patterns for weeks. Speaking of Gertie, she has moved over from Butterick to Simplicity. I have no idea why the change occurred since both companies are now under the same umbrella. Nevertheless…

Red Hot Valentine’s Dress Ideas

Often I use holidays and events as an excuse to sew a project. A metallic jumpsuit for New Year’s Eve, a swimsuit for a vacation,  a pastel dress for Easter or a little red dress for Valentine’s Day. So even though I have no plans with the hubby for V-day (at my instance) I found…
