I can't believe it has almost been a year since I last posted. Oh my! I decided to make a comeback for a couple of reason. First, it seems like fewer and fewer people are blogging. I miss the bloggers! I love Instagram as much as the next person but the information and connection just isn't the same. While pondering this, I realized I am a blogger that stopped blogging. So, here I am! Secondly, I find that I use the blog a ton for reference (often make the same thing over and over). Lastly, the pictures keep things real. The mirror lies...lies...lies whereas a picture is often brutally honest.
Pattern: Today we have McCall's 6074. It is a super favorite of mine. I have these two shirts, a dress and a second dress on work table. It is really fast, easy to make and easy to fit! The elastic in the front does most of the fitting for you.
Fabric: I usually make it out of ITY fabric but want to try it with a nice weight jersey knit soon. I prefer a slightly heavier fabric with really good recovery for this pattern because it makes the dress/top more shapely. The thinner fabric works too but the results are less peplum and more straight. Both of these fabrics were bought at Fabric.com and sadly both are sold out.
Favorite Part: I love the way the pattern addresses the neckline,,,,,,,you sew it flat. The neckline is sewn before combining the front two pieces which makes sewing the v-neck super simple.
Current Obsessions: I love a good podcast in the sewing room and this week I am binge listening to Lore. History with an edge to it. Each episode is guaranteed to be disturbing and are often times down-right scary......but....I. can't. stop. listening!
