I am finally gonna get into some patterns for me. I always say I am but then I never do. I have started this new Suede Says by Simplicity. Not the hotpants jumpsuit in the middle! The dress on the right. These patterns are pretty cute. Each gives you an Edgy look (middle one), Classic look (right) and a Flirty look (left). So don't be thrown off by the center pictures like I originally was!
By the way does everyone HATE simplicity sizing as much as I do!!??? I bought the pattern that goes through size 12 because I normally wear 8 and I forget how weird patterns are. Well by measurements I should be sewing a 14/16 on this pattern (which I did not buy) So I am going to try reducing the seam allowance and hope it works! Also I added 3 inches to the length of the dress (dress B) because I am kinda tall and it seemed short from the pattern. So if anyone is interested I will be making notes along the way while I am sewing this. Once I post my dress (hopefully it fits!) if anyone wants my notes just ask! Also I got this cute slipper pattern Simplicity 2278 because Nancy's Couture is going to do a sew along and they are so cute!!
I also plan on making some Market Skirts for my nieces in Kansas City since I am going up there in a few weeks. There are 5 girls up there! I made the 2 littlest some Warhol style dresses already. My sister-in-law and I both want these Hobo Purses to carry around for Spring, so I need to find cute fabrics for those! I recently made some really cute striped seersucker pants for R, using Made's basic pant pattern. I love the little flare at the bottom- just a touch.
So big...too soon.
Have a good week ya'll!
