A change in plans...BURDA 7576

So...I didn't have enough fabric to make the blouse out of V8772. I made the blouse from BURDA 7576 instead.... I'm not sure I still love the print, but it will work.


  1. Lovely blouse! I like the print--it's bold and colorful. Very unique:)

  2. I LOVE the print!! The shirt is so cute. If you don't want it I will be happy to take it off of your hands. Lol

  3. Love it. Great job. I also like that pattern. May pick it up the next time in Joann's

    1. Thanks Angela, I'm looking forward to making the jacket and skirt as well. I love the look of the outfit.

  4. Beautiful blouse. I am convinced that we are pattern twins or something. I've had this pattern on my radar for a while but never tried it. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Lynn, LOL! I know right.... I was thinking I need to look for the Jalie jean pattern so that I, too, can ROCK some "custom jeans!"

    2. To kick start my sewjo (again), I was thinking of cutting out another pair and blogging the process. I'm telling you, I don't think I'll ever buy jeans again!

  5. Hello! I tried finding an email to ask if it is okay to post a link to your Vogue 8543 post with a photo of you wearing the jacket/skirt, but I couldn't find one, so I did go ahead and post with attribution and a link to your site, but would prefer your permission. If you would rather I not link to you as I did, please let me know and I will revise the post. Here's the link to my post:

  6. I love the print. I also like the loops you made for the closure on the neck. I alwasy have trouble with those.

Uhh...Quite possibly my new favorite thing!

I'm having sew much fun on these jeans they might be my new favorite garment to sew!  They have come together well.  I'm in the process of fitting and preparing to attach the waistband.  I've been digitally documenting every detail.  I love the topstitching details.  I chose a funky twill for the pocket lining.  Even the zipper details came together nicely....  More pics later showcasing the hem and once the fit is finalized

McCalls 6963 - One of my favorite necklines

Pattern description: Close-fitting, pullover tops have draped front neckline variation, narrow hem on back neckline, and stitched hems.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
There were easy to follow and it was another quick to make top.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? 
This is my favorite neckline.  I was a huge fan of cowl necks back in the 70s...hahahaah!

Fabric Used: One version is jersey. The other iteration is an ITY knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: 
I didn't make any alterations

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes...definitely! I think it's a great staple for wear with suits or separates. Additionally, I think the ITY wears better. The jersey hangs great at the neckline, but was disagreeable at the midsection. The ITY, however, drapes smoothly and looks great.

Great pattern!

I'm in on this...are you?

I love the show, "The Great British Sewing Bee." I hear there is one being produced for the US. In the meantime, Deepika over at PatternRewiew is hosting "The Great Pattern Review Sewing Bee" that begins in November. You'll have less than a week for each round of competition, and what's already in your stash should suffice. Comment below if you decide to participate! I'll keep you posted....
