A bit of Catch Up

I managed to get a lot of sewing done since my last post but sometimes I just don’t feel like taking pictures or blogging.  I haven’t gotten into the new routine that’s required to download pictures from my camera to my new computer or the change in uploading them to Flickr.  It’s always easier than I remember, but it always makes me anxious about messing it up.  On to what you’re really here for: the pretties!


I said I wasn’t going to sewing another Butterick 5209 but this second one was the first thing I sewed since my first B5209.  It was much easier the second time around!  I made no changes to my pattern and again, it fits like a dream.

Next up is another McCall’s 6284.  The first time around, I used a blue leopard print that I wasn’t quite happy with.  I was right, in solid black, this is my new favorite shirt.  At the same time, I also made a solid black long sleeve version.

And finally, another Smooth Sailing blouse from http://wearinghistorypatterns.com/  The only changes I made to this version was to add an inch in length at the hem to help keep it tucked in.  This is definitely my TnT go-to button front blouse pattern.  I LOVE the fabric, having grown up playing mah jong with my family.  It’s a bit busy on it’s own, like this, but looks fantastic with my favorite jumper/pinafore.
