Another view, Another Favourite!

My last make was the 1589a top with the peep hole back. Even though I have since altered the straps slightly, I really like the fit and style of it. I’m after a few tops that are light and not too long, allowing me to wear them with jeans, skirts or shorts. As the fit was nice and the top itself was relatively easy to make, I decided on giving view B a shot last week.

Back to Sewing – a Summer Simplicity

Last week it suddenly dawned on me that I gone a full month without sewing! :-0  With our lives being a little hectic, I suppose that I had just let it slip.  It’s not a good enough excuse really as sewing is my favourite thing to do more than anything, yet I had let myself get hung up on too many other things and had not really been allowing myself any ‘me’ time!  So I decided to  set up a sewing station(despite our lack of furniture!) and got productive.

I recently bought a handful of Simplicity patterns while they were on sale for $3.99 over on Pattern Review.  I took advantage of this offer as all of the patterns were at least $15 full price.  If you haven’t checked out Pattern Review, you should!  I always search patterns on there before sewing, mainly to get recommendations for fabrics and to check for any known fitting issues.
