I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! The hubby and I had a great day with the kiddos, and I even wore my M6556 out to dinner with the hubby. I know I said I loathed the way it looked on me, and I still do lol; however, I went with it...
I think you really have to embrace the drape in order to appreciate this top; I don't think I have embraced it :)... The top is really simple, seriously I think it's only two pieces! I just couldn't embrace all that drape, I felt like I was in a Halloween costume. Ok, maybe that's a little dramatic, but seriously it has a serious drape. However, I loved it on everyone else that has made it :)! Just not myself :(..
|I love the print of the models pants, wish|
I could get my hands on this fabric:)
Ok, moving on.... I have been sewing it up lately, yessss! I've almost completed S1371, in which I chose a floral print for these pants.. I just need to finish the waistband and do the (dreaded) hand- stitching for the hem... They are really cute, but adjustments were definitely needed in order to achieve the fitted look that was shown on the model:
I thought I had a top that would compliment these pants, but alas I will need to make one. I was thinking about pairing it with Simplicity 1363:
|I want to make view B: In a black Challis, I think..|
Also I've just about finished M6957, it just needs hems; told y'all I've been sewing... It's always those pesky hems that slow me down, lol.. Again this pattern is really simple in that it could be finished in a few hours.. I made view C: Hopefully that review will be up sometime this week... Okay, let me get back to my machines before this post gets any longer :) Y'all have a wonderful rest of the week!
Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
