Some Sewing

This is the outfit I wore to Church last Sunday it was a little cool here so I was able to wear pants and a jacket.
Simplicity 4076

I have make this knit top a couple of times. I make this one for taking on my trip to Ireland.
It's easy to wear and does not crease. The pattern is an easy one. I make it in a size 12.

I got the fabric at Jo-Anns.

Vogue 1051

I love these pants I have made two pairs. The fit is great. I made a size 10 but added a little extra at the hip area. This was my first time doing a welt pocket but I found some websites to help (can't remember where right now).

McCalls's 5859

I made this jacket for a wedding a few weeks back (I also make a dress to go with it will show in a later post)
I made view B in a linen blend I got at Jo-Anns. This jacket went together great. I did not have to do any alterations .I made the size12..

New Windows Yaaaaaaaa

It's been a busy week around here. A couple of years ago my husband and I bought this house we are living in now that needed a lot of fixing up. We have been slowly working on it and it is coming along . Last night we went to Lowe's and order some new windows that we are going to put in ourselves. The window really need replacing they are single pane and the paint is falling of them they look really bad so I'm excited. All the work we have done on the house so far we have done ourselves it's been fun to see it all come together. I make some new curtains for the
bedroom that I will post pics of later this week. We are also making a fabric headboard that I will show when it is finish.

This was my first time working with faux fur and also working with
Burda World of Fashion. I make this jacket for my daughter. It was not to hard to make but I did forget to add the hem allowance so it was a tad short on her but she loved it.

First Post

Yesterday spent the day cutting out a couple of patterns: Simplicity 2616 . I used a linen blend for this dress and cut out the longer version. Got the fabric on sale at Jo-anns 60% off sale. The next pattern is Simplicity 2599 the fabric is a silky type colour blue and white. I do not have my camera right now as soon as I get it back from my daughter I will post some pictures.
