Camouflage Hi Lo Tank Top: Simplicity 1167

This fabric should look familiar as I’ve already sewn a t-shirt out of it, here. I purchased two yards of this camouflage rayon jersey from LA Finch Fabrics so I had about half of it left after making the tee, which was enough for another simple top. This time I went for a simple tank using Simplicity…

Black Slim Pants: Simplicity 1019

Whew! I’m nearing the finish line of this Suduko Wardrobe Contest. These pants from Mimi G for Simplicity pattern 1019 is piece #5 of 10.

Cropped Wide Leg Pants – Simplicity 8093

Four bottoms are needed for a Suduko wardrobe. I had specific plans for one block (that’s coming next week) and I knew one would be jeans (because…jeans). Leggings, or slim pants, seemed like a good idea to work with the floral tunic, but that still left one more. I played around with the fourth block…a…

Striped Duster – Fabricista Post

Have you ever run out to buy a pattern with the intention to make it right away, but then you get side tracked and days become weeks that become months? Well, that is what happened with early fall pattern, Simplicity 8177. I purchased this pattern this summer with plans to make it right away for…

Simplicity Got Their Early Spring Release Right!

Monday I reviewed the Early Spring pattern collections from McCalls and Vogue. If you read that post, you know that I was thoroughly disappointed in both releases and it seems some of you agreed. If you missed it, check it out here! Simplicity released a much more impressive Early Spring collection (in my opinion), but I…

A Look Back

I started taking this blog and my sewing in general more seriously.  I entered two sewing competitions, winning my first entry in Pattern Review’s Travel Wardrobe Contest (read more here) and…

Fall 2015 “To-Sew” List

I typically sew for the current season right up until the end of that season. See the halter wrap dress I sewed up just 2 weeks ago for the Fabricista Fashion Challenge. Sadly that means when the temps finally drop or raise I have nothing to wear. And by nothing I mean nothing handmade and by…
