Sheath dress made from Simplicity 2337 (same as my blue print linen dress). I modified the neckline and the back lower skirt. I used View A from McCalls’s 5523 and swapped out the vent for a flounc…
Here’s another version of Simplicity 1280. I made up the same size, but in a woven rayon chalis this time. Compared to my first version, I didn’t have any bulk issues and it pressed beautifully. I …
Simplicity 1280, one of their new patterns for fall. I made my first attempt to test the size and style out of an IYT knit I had. It’s very “fall” even if the print isn’t quite me. It came together…
That’s so kind, thank you! Drop me a note here when you finish it. I’d love to see it!
Thanks! I’ve been wearing it all the time with skinny jeans and boots.
I made this for the Burda Style Silk Moto Jacket Sewalong, and I am insanely proud of this jacket, as evidenced by my zillions of pictures. I strayed from the pattern in three ways. First, I interf…
I knew I had to have it when I saw it.

My 3rd McCalls 6751, this time View D with the pleated long back. That back is very long…I’m not sure that I like it. But I like the rest of it and will wear it anyway. I think the drape of the f…
This is version A of McCalls 6751. I sew VERY slowly, and still I was amazed at how fast it came together. A quick stitch up the sides and across the shoulders=done. Although, there IS that mile lo…
Thank you! It’s just opaque enough that I don’t need anything underneath it.
McCalls 6751 View B, Size M. My only adjustment was my standard 1/2 inch forward shoulder. This (flowy) shapeless front silouette is new for me, and is taking some getting used to. It might have he…
My second version of Sewaholic’s Belcarra Blouse is one size larger than the first. I’m still working at making nice baby hems and bound openings, but it’s wearable despite the wonkiness. I spent s…
It’s beautiful! And the pattern placement is perfect.
This is my first (but not last) Belcarra Blouse from Sewaholic.
I finally finished a project using a cut of the J.Crew silk/cotton blend voile I bought earlier this spring. I successfully used …
It looks great on you! We’ll done!!
This looks great! I’m working on this pattern right now.
Thank you! The next one will be from a better suited fabric. I’m pretty hard on my clothes and th…
