I'm so excited, just got an email from Built by Wendy - two new patterns - pants/shorts and top/dress- both very cool.  Does anyone know when the next $1 Simplicity sale is on at Joanns? 

Thought you would be interested to know!!

The same is true for Joann.

I just found out by looking on her website. I'm so excited though, the top/tunic is totally cute. And I would love to make the shorts and capris for summer! They look like they fit well  Smiley

P.S. how do you get e-mails from her? Is there a newsletter thing you can subscribe to??

I just started working on the shorts last night with some great black/white seersucker. Dear God though, the zipper instructions are harder than I could have ever dreamed!

At my Joanne's the Simplicity sales exclude "Sew Easy" and "Built by Wendy" those shorts are really cute! They look like they might be a little tight fitting though.

larahspee- you should post pictures and do a sewing pattern review when you finish! good luck!

I finally finished the BBW #3850 shorts in seersucker fabric! I will post pictures as soon as I can get a decent shot of them.

The pattern was relatively easy for someone who hasn't sewn much (like me). The zipper instructions were a little harder than needed to be and you probably could have subsituted a lap zipper with fewer steps to complete. But overall, totally easy.

The shorts, although I measured myself and followed instructions to a "T", came out about two sizes too big in the hips. I read somewhere that Wendy is generous in her sizing and that couldn't be more true! So that is something to keep in mind when cutting your pattern out.

I also did the "top" pattern #3835 and I seriously think that was the easiest pattern in the world for a top that is quite cute and easily embellished with your own stuff. I'll post pictures of that, too, when I can get them.
