1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Infinity Scarf on: February 22, 2011 04:13:44 PM

I have become addicted to making these scarves. They are quick and easy but give a great punch to any outfit. I'm wearing it here along with my Simplicity 2594 top that I sewed late 2009. The scarf is a knit fabric and the top is stretch satin.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Retro styled suede dress with pleats on: March 16, 2010 12:40:33 PM

I made this dress using Vogue 1156 pattern, a new and recent pattern. It has a lot of pleats and darts which adds to the sexy shaping that nicely frames my figure without showing too much. Even though I love the outcome, this project took me a bit too much time to try a second version....definitely a keeper though!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 50s Inspired Dress on: February 02, 2010 02:27:56 PM

I made this quick and easy project (Dress 125) using the latest issue (2-2010) of Burda. It's from the 50s Rock Inspiration section. I really love the darts, shaping, and plunging back. There will be some more of these in my future, I'm sure. The only thing I needed to make this was the thread and stretch cotton fabric. The stretch was enough to omit the zipper from the directions.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Blue Suede Dress on: December 15, 2009 12:31:06 PM

I made this little number for my upcoming cruise I'm taking. I used one of Vogue's "Very Easy" patterns to make it. I picked up blue suede fabric from the local discount fabric store in Normal Heights in San Diego. I paid less than $16 bucks including the fabric, zipper, and tax. Can't beat that!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cowl Neck Top on: December 11, 2009 10:21:25 AM

Here is my second top completed for December. I made this using Vogue's "Very Easy Pattern" 8595. There were only 4 pieces and was a quick work up done entirely on my serger. I'm hoping to order a nice, thick sweater knit to try this again in a comfy, warm, winter fabric.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ruffled Top with Floral Print on: December 04, 2009 03:18:51 PM

I made a very satisfying top using the Simplicity 2554 pattern and a wild floral print that I picked up from Yardage Town in San Diego. This was a quick and easy project that has me happy that I sew. lol. From coworkers and boss to people on the street - this piece is getting me the compliments. lol.

I am going on a cruise with my family in February and this will fit the bill to a tee!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Silk Swing Coat - Unlined on: November 05, 2009 04:07:25 PM

I made my first jacket using McCall's 5378. It is unlined with way too many facings for my taste, but I still did it. The fabric is an Asian-inspired silk that I picked up near my work at Yardage Town in Kearny Mesa in San Diego. This was part of my Pattern Review contest challenge, so I am still happy with the outcome.

The back has a neat pleat detail in the swing coat, that I do like.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Victorian-esque Lace Gauze Top on: October 28, 2009 04:18:06 PM

Here's my latest project. This is the first time this year that I have made a top that didn't use a knitted fabric. I have never used gauze fabric before, so this was another first - working with lace being the other first. I like how they both worked out together. This will not be my last time using either material.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Success at Last on: October 19, 2009 05:23:39 PM

After too many duds to count, I have now completed 3 successful projects in a row! This one is my favorite. It's simple, classy, and comfy. It's made using the Butterick 5327 pattern in 1 1/2 yards of t-shirt jersey/knit material.  This carried me through work all day and into the evening with my man.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Emilio Pucci Twist Top Knock-Off on: October 15, 2009 12:10:46 PM

This is my second Simplicity 4075 top. I made one last year, but it was way too short on me - so I adapted it to fit my much smaller Sister. For this version, I added 8 inches to the midriff for length and then cut about 4 inches off the bottom once hemmed. I bought the fabric online at Fabric.com for $7.17. I've been getting a lot of comments on how this is a Pucci-esque print. I agree! Not bad for under $10 bucks. His tanks sell for $500 +.

While the version I made of this top is sleeveless, I used Butterick 5260's sleeve pattern and made it extra long, to go slightly over my wrists. I really love how the finished product looks.
