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. 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:

Simplicity 2151 - Linear polka dots!

It's a wild print, but I went for it!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Princess seams--they are my favorite. The sleeve detail is nice, and the collar style is my second favorite (shawl collars are my favorite). The length of the top is great for slacks. It's roomy without being too loose. The fit is "Amazing Fit" series.

Fabric used: 
Silky print, but I would love to make it in a print that has just a bit of stretch.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. The "Amazing Fit" series is great and offers alternate bra cup sizes. That's why I chose it. The fit really is great.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, however, in a different fabric. The fabric I selected puckers easily.

Conclusion:
Good staple top as a wardrobe builder. I could do with a red, black, and white version of this.







KwikSew K4028 - Rust with black stripes

My first KwikSew pattern.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. Very easy. It's first Kwik Sew pattern. I will be back.... The instructions suggest serving. I made the mistake of serging the sleeve opening--big mistake. It was difficult to turn under the hem to topstitch.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It only took 2.5 hours from cut out to finish.

Fabric used:
Ponte knit

Pattern alterations:
None

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely. Lovely cowl! I loved sewing it. The pieces came together well. I will use a lighter knit to make it again. It's a great year round top for knits of all weights.

Conclusion:
The top wore really well. I really love the color. It will be a "go-to" pattern for me






Busy Season...Some Sewing, Some More Sewing, a New Book, and Even More Sewing!

Well…the past few months have been exciting! While it appears I haven’t been sewing, I have completed a few garments…. I have also been busy launching a new book as well! I'm reviewing 4 garments in this post!  

Columbia Style WeekNatalea and I were asked to construct some of the garments for this year's event.  It was our first time working with "drafted patterns."  It took a bit of getting used to the idea, but we both managed to complete the garments for which we were responsible!  I learned that I routinely underestimate how long it will take to complete a garment.  I made both jackets (Natalea made the blouses).  My estimates came in at about four hours each.  I will at least 4 hours short in both estimations!  We were constructing right down to the day before.  It was a great experience, but I prefer not to sew under that sort of pressure.  I think I'll pass next time :-)
