Geometric Romper


The weather has been highs in the 100s here in Austin for the last couple of weeks so I've been trying to get in some pool time and also lounging in A/C.  I've also been cutting fabric and sewing away lately, which has been nice. Today I have my review of Simplicity 8333, and what a perfect piece to wear in this crazy heat!  It's easy to wear and made in a comfy cotton jersey knit.  The fabric was purchased from Girl Charlee sometime this past spring.

Black & White Linen Dress


This summer I've been remaking many garments that I made last year when I first started sewing my own clothes.  I picked up easy sewing patterns from the "Learning To Sew" series that Simplicity has, like this Simplicity 2147 dress.  Many of these pieces that I sewed needed major tweaks and I learned something new about sewing with each one. 

Coral Pleated Top


This top has been sitting in my closet for the last month or so, waiting to be shared with the world.  It's a summer version of the pleated tunic I made last winter.  I was so frustrated by the knit rayon that I used with the tunic that I just had to make it again with a woven fabric.  I was hoping and praying that I wouldn't run into the same problems that I had before.  Well lucky me, this top turned out great!  It was much easier sewing with the woven rayon that I chose.  YAY!

Navajo Jumpsuit


Well it's been a minute since I've posted a new make, but I have a great excuse!  I was traveling, relaxing, and just taking whatever time I needed to complete some new projects.  Here I have a jumpsuit that I made about a month ago.  I found this Simplicity "It's So Easy It's Simplicity" pattern at Walmart a couple of months back.  It was a great price and I loved the design of the pant jumpsuit.  I had also been wanting to making another one piece since my last one I made about a year ago (see my previous post).  The fabric was purchased at Joann's, I found it along side other ethnic/summery type fabrics.  The fabric is a lightweight cotton and has good shape for this garment.
