1  Three new dresses! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by Pleasantly Malformed on: June 29, 2014 06:30:09 PM
Well, not new. New to me. More like, three recent sewn retro reprints! Yay! Anyway, these are some Butterick Retro Reprints I picked up on sale. Two patterns, three dresses. Smiley Definitely recommend for some wardrobe fillers!!

Also, a moment of Victory.

Victory ROLLS!

Which I totally did. All by myself. And only had to redo like twice because they fell like undercooked souffle. Oh yeah. Cheesy

Thank you so much for checking out my work! Enjoy your day!!

2  Playsuit From Modern Patterns! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by Pleasantly Malformed on: May 11, 2014 05:49:02 PM
So this is me. I made a playsuit selection from some modern patterns. This is as finished as its going to get, because of some minor but inncessant fit issues, lol.

and the back:

Patterns used McCalls 6969 (Playsuit) McCalls 5431 (skirt) and Simplicity 3921 (Bolero)

Many liberties were taken with these patterns. Lol. More photos and a couple other in progress updates found on my blog:

3  I must tell you how ardently... in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Pleasantly Malformed on: April 22, 2014 06:02:47 PM
...I admire your dandylions.

This is part of my yearly job as sewing obsessed mother to dress myself and others in historical clothes. This year is regency. This particular costume is Burda 9528, wherein I made the coat, the vest (waistcoat) and the fall front pants. Im hoping having my adorable son fully clothed will encourage me to sew my sisters, moms and own dresses. They're a bit more difficult.

REDICULOUS amount of photos on my blog. (Mainly proud mama photos very few construction ones)

4  Retro Rose in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Pleasantly Malformed on: April 22, 2014 03:04:19 PM
New shirts
So I have been mentally preparing myself for attempting to sew my summer/fall wardrobe. Hopefully my plans will come to fruition but so far when I plan things out I tend to well, ditch halfway.

This will be my first official planning post as pertains to wardrobe.

So I have planned approximately seven shirts. I have had really good success with two retro patterns which seem to flatter my figure and am chancing it with the final seventh.

The first three are variations on the pattern Simplicity 1692.

The first is a large rose print with rose buttons, fully lined in pale pink cotton, version D.

Simplicity 1692 Front View

When I first saw this fabric, I knew I had to have an article of clothing out of it. I mean, Hey! The huge cabbage roses are gorgeous, and the print is so lively but at the same time, soft and feminine. I decided to line it, I forget why, it probably would've handled being unlined.

Simplicity 1692 Back View

Mayhap the facing was too much for me? I dunno. Anyway, I cut out a 20 hoping for a 16 1/2 to 18 size but it came out a bit small. Instead of scrapping it I unpicked two of the pleaty-dart things in the front.

Unpicked innermost tucks

 Left me with a bit of blue marking but it fits! These are absolutely lovely pink roses at the shoulder.

Pretty. Smiley

Im working through two more shirts of this type can be found here::

This is really just a muslin as I try to finagle a high-waisted skirt from a wiggle dress retro pattern, but I liked how it turned out!
