I'm SO glad it's Friday!!!! Y'all remember this??? LOL **Sings...what I need from you is Understanddddddddddddddinggggggggg** lol
Anyway I am good for making sewing plans lol. Remember these spring and summer plans? HA! A few of those things got made, but I kinda just did my own thing lol.
Now it's time to plan again lol, except this time I have a reason lol. Getting ready to do some traveling and of course, I need some new additions to my wardrobe lol ;)
First, I need a jacket...seasons are changing...well getting ready to lol.
You can click on all the fabric pics to make them larger and see more detail.
I *heart* this fabric. It's a wool tweed and it is GORGEOUS. I swear this picture does it NO justice. I bought it early this summer and I'm SO glad I did. I ALMOST walked away from it. It was back in the clearance section for 60% off of $9.99. When Hancock started putting our their fall fabrics, they took this from the back and put it on the front with the wools for $12.99 or $9.99 a yard. I did GOOD lol. Oh, I'm making the long sleeve view.
I made what four pair of shorts/capri pants this summer and I am no longer scared to make pants lol. I don't know why I was scared anyway lol. Just do it right? LOL. Well I will make the Simplicity 2700 in a light weight denim (yall know thats my most favorite fabric EVER lol) and the Butterick top in the silk chiffon that I got last year from Gail K Fabrics.I've never worked with chiffon because I have been very,very afraid of it. I'm gonna jump right in lol.
I have had this pattern *FOREVER* I don't know if you can see the color of the darker fabric. I *think* it's a cotton blend twill. I label my fabric when I buy it now and I didn't do that when I purchased this. It's an olive color and the yellow really works well with it.
I have really fallen in love with Kwik Sew patterns. Their directions are SO good. Y'all know I follow directions to the "T" when needed lol. For the KS pattern I'm making the hoodie version. I'm still undecided if I will add the front pocket or not...we will see lol.
I am FINALLY about to make my first pair of jeans. I swore up and down when I first started sewing that I would make everything except my jeans lol. HA! Guess I'm eating crow lol. Everyone that has made this pattern has had a fab pair of jeans. I hope my pair isn't the first messed up pair lol.
*gasp* I'm making a "track suit" LOL I know you can't believe it right? LOL Well I wanna be comfy when I fly and still look cute lol. I'mma ROCK THIS! LOL. Anyway, this is one of Hancock's new knits. I can NOT remember the name of it, but I THINK it starts with a P. I'll find out when I go back in there lol.
IF Hancock has the new Butterick patterns out in time for me to make this dress, I will make it. I LOVE this fabric! It's a silk cotton satin that I got from Fashionista Fabrics when I won the Pattern Review Mini Wardrobe Contest last year (I won a GC from them, yep still happy about that lol).
The pattern actually calls for a knit BUT this fabric has a little give in it. I don't know. I'm going to make a muslin first, but I think this will be fierce as a LBD. Put on the right accessories and some FIYA shoes that I ALREADY OWN!?!? HA! baaaaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbby.
Ok, I'm excited! LOL
That's all I have y'all!
Have a GREAT weekend and be safe!!
