Simplicity 2596 floral top

Here is one of my latest projects. This shirt can take less than 2 hours to make but it took me a week since lately I only sew for 30 minutes at night and that includes the cutting process.
I used a floral silky fabric. I made view E but I did not add the lace to sleeves and the neck. This is a very easy to use pattern and I recommend it for beginners.

I cut a size 14 but I think I could have use a size 12 because it is very "roomy". I looks good on me anyways.
If I use this pattern again I will try to sew view A.

Out of print Simplicity 0508 finished project

Here is the finished dress I made using out of print Simplicity Pattern 0508 which I considered to be unpopular because there where not reviews at all at Pattern Review and it went too quick to the out of print category.

Here is the not so popular pattern. It was easy to sew, I just wish I used the right size.

I did not use the darts on this dress. The dress was still to tight on me even though I added more inches to the bust and the hips. It still won't fit on me since I have not loose all the weight after having my twins. Still, I think it is a very nice dress.
Here is the back. I consider I need to get more practice sewing zippers but it is OK.

I added a Burda pattern to my collection

When I saw this pants I thought that they are just so cool. So fabric is cut already just waiting for me to get started. I will work on view B.

Vogue 1161

I am planning on making this dress because I think it is stunning and doesn't look so complicated. Vogue pattern 1161 has also been influenced by the 80's fashion. I remember wearing a pant set with a shirt with a very similar cut on the back.

I received a Metrostyle catalog and look what I found... A similar dress for just $39! Should I buy it or make it my own way?

Thanks to Sharon!

This is the vintage pattern that my blog buddy Sharon sent to me about a month ago. It is from the 80's era. I really like that children clothes were more formal back then. Hopefully I will sew this in the future when my baby gets a little bit bigger.

I actually did some serious sewing last month but have not make any reviews or taken pictures. I will start posting pictures and reviews tomorrow.

I would like to thank Sharon for sending me a wonderful girl vintage pattern. I will be posting soon about it too.
