As part of my Fall Essentials Sew-Along plan, I sewed two versions of Simplicity 3673, a reissue from an original 1950′s pattern. My first version is made from toasty warm red corduroy – perfect for the frosty Canadian fall and winter. The bodice is lined in a mini black and white houndstooth I had in [...]

I made another version of the tunic from Butterick 7762, this time in a knit. For more details, please visit my blog. I’m also having a stash busting fabric sale! Click here to see what’s available.

I finished a lovely blouse today from Simplicity 6960. It is an easy sew and comfortable fit. For more details and photos, please visit my blog.

I finally made the time to suit up my mannequin and snap a few shots of my completed scissors skirt. I was inspired by this version and used Butterick 2235 as the pattern. Hop on over to my blog for more photos and chatter.
