So I think today, I would like to revisit and celebrate those sewing projects that were not at all tedious. Some of my favourites that have challenged me in a good way. Enjoy, I'm going to take a break and clean up the machines.
|Pleats, pockets, plackets, and a hem facing. I loved the challenge this Vogue pattern offered. |
|The pattern was fun and simple, it was the fabric that proved to be challenging. |
McCall's NY Collection 2465
|Oops, I cut the bias front in two pieces. It should have been cut on the fold. |
The challenge: will the placket work out? It did, but the front facing that was another story.
Thank goodness for seam rippers!
Burda Style 7489
|The dress was a re-make using a simple pattern. |
The challenge was hidden in the fabric. Who knew it would be so difficult to press?
|Baby sleepers, even though I have made this pattern countless times |
I always get confused as to which side to overlap the front.
|I love the darts on this jacket.|

|I absolutely love Marcy Tilton patterns! |
They take forever to cut out and there are a lot of pieces but
they are so worth the investment of time and work!
