I had been very lazy during the last few days. I finished sewing some projects, but have not iron them or taken any pictures. Lazy Lizz! I will try to take pictures tonight.

On the other hand I was checking the new McCall's Pattern Collection and this is what I think I may buy for my pattern collection. I am pregnant so I won't be able to wear most of them this summer.

I guess it is getting hard for me to leave the leggings trend.

This dress looks pretty easy to make. Hope so!

This is a nice flirty skirt. I think it shall be easy to sew too.

I have seen this before. Let me guess, more 80's inspired fashion?

Since I am now into making handbags too, I think this will be a good one to add to my collection.

The weirdest patterns

I like Vogue Patterns, but this ones from the new collection are kind of weird. Don't you think?

Butterick B5203 work in progress

I am working on a white top using Butterick B5203 See & Sew pattern. I chose to do View B because I like how the long sleeves top looks. I am almost finish. I am giving the final touch to the hems and it is looking very nice. This is not a maternity pattern, but the top looks like a maternity top from my point of view. What do you think?

Here I am at Occoquan

So I wore my outfit today. I am sorry if the picture does not shows all the details. I usually post pictures of my outfits while they are on my dress form. This time it is me wearing it! :)

I used Simplicity pattern 5756 which was very easy. I mean really easy! For the pants I used a bottom weight linen material in a lavender color that I purchased at Joann Fabrics. For the top I used a floral silk fabric from the same store. I usually buy my fabrics from Joann because it is only like 6 miles from my house.

I highly recommend using this pattern (if you are pregnant). The pants are very easy to sew and are more comfortable to wear than all the other pants I have from Motherhood. I bought a black linen fabric to make me another pair.

Simplicity Pattern 5756

I just finished sewing a complete outfit using this pattern. This was an easy project to sew. I did view D and pants E. In fact I will try to make more tops and pants by using this pattern.

No pictures? I will wear my new maternity outfit next Sunday to church and promise to take some pictures.
