Sunday Sewing Happenings

 
  I've managed to finish up V8968 this afternoon. I'm really in need of summer tops, so I cut out S1589 while I was in my sewing room. I hope to get started on that today or at least sometime this week..  For the S1589 top I picked up this yummy Challis fabric from Hobby Lobby for about $6yd, which was great considering I only needed a yard and half. However, I bought 2 1/2 yards because I knew I wanted to lengthen the top a bit...
I'm making view "A"
  I also posted on my instagram account this week a picture of my fabric loot and goodies I picked up while fabric shopping on Friday..  I love this fabric! Joann's labeled it as a denim fabric, but I think it feels more twillish, yes that is a word, lol..... I think it is screaming to become some type of cigarette pant, and I think I have a pattern in mind. I was thinking maybe S1371, right? I only bought the pattern for the pants, which I love!


  What else? Oh yeah, I also purchased a few patterns this weekend that were on sale.. Nakisha from Sew Crafty Chemist  mentioned this pattern as one that she was going to make. It made me to  remember the one that Erica B made, which I loved her version. However, it also led me to remember my three, yes three failed attempts at this pattern! But in my defense I was pregnant with my daughter and believed to be under the influence of having pregnancy brain, lol! I have to remake this pattern because I refuse to let a pattern, especially one rated easy defeat me.. Does anyone else feel the need to remake a failed pattern, especially one rated easy? Or is it just me lol!

 
 I hope you all are enjoying your weekend, and that your machines are cranking out nothing but lovelies! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. Looking forward to your version, I actually passed over that pattern because of the length. I have remade a failed pattern and was better for it when it worked perfectly the second time.

  3. Good things on the horizon...I agree with you in not wanting patterns rated "easy" to defeat me. I may give in for the moment, but I usually return to figure out what went wrong. It is amazing how looking at things with a fresh set of eyes can help!

  5. Hmm. It depends on the pattern and magnitude of the fail. =) If it's a colossal fail, then the pattern is recycled or given away. If I really, really, REALLY like the pattern, then maybe I'll try it again.

    I'd love to see that floral print made into pants.
