Catch Up

I have been extremely prolific in my sewing lately but not so good with the blogging. I will hopefully update some of these with modeled pictures later and I have a whole bunch of other things that I plan to do proper reviews of, too.

But for the time being:


The Sewaholic Pendrell blouse. I loved this on the dressform, but the sleeves were way too much so I ended up converting this to sleeveless. Maybe if a fabric with more drape and less body was used the sleeves wouldn’t make so much of a statement. The Pendrell definitely felt costumey as it was pre-alteration.

Next up is the Papercut Patterns Coppelia cardigan and a tank dress from the big 4 (will update with pattern #).


The Coppelia is a fun cardigan to make. It is more cropped and fitted than I would usually wear, although I like the look of it with a sleeveless dress. I will definitely be making a few more of these. The dress was quick and easy and I’ve had that Paris fabric forever. I am happy to finally put it to use.

And my favorite of my recent projects:


For my daughter’s graduation, I made The Lisette Diplomat dress from Simplicity. This was a breeze to make. The biggest challenge was trying to match the patterns where the seaming meets in the center front. I think I’ll go with a solid fabric next time to show off the top stitching.
