Posts Tagged ‘Simplicity 2596’

So over the last few weeks, I have been quite busy in my sewing room! I have had some busts but also some awesome wardrobe builders too!

I have been focusing on dresses. I LOVE dresses. They are feminine, comfy when you feel blah, most of the time flattering, can be casual or dressed up..I can go on and on…

 

I started to feel inspired once I completed my famous “Mu Mu” dress. So then I decided to make TWO more of that style

Please excuse my hideous posing, but after T made fun of me, I tried to liven my stance up a bit 🙂

 

 

Red Firecrackers

 

My favorite variation

 

Then I visited another old favorite,  New Look 6677

 

reminds me of a funky top from the 70's

 

Ok, so now I am feeling pretty confident and decide to dive into a NEW pattern..Ugh

 

Not so crazy about the sash

 

And my first Bust…New Look 6239. It was so super easy to make, but it just made me look like a BLIMP!

I even tried to make a second dress, hoping it would miraculously become flattering..

No dice.  But it is the perfect post-beach attire…light comfy and I could run to grocery store if I really had too

 

Post Beach Dress, for sure!

 

Alright, that pattern is socked away for a much later day and I decide to try, try again!

 

White Eyelet Tunic

 

Yay! Simplicity 2596!! LOVE LOVE this top! There are so many ways to change this top up, possibilities are endless!

 

Eyelet trim

 

This has renewed my drive for sewing! I LOVE to sew and I especially enjoy it during the lazy days and nights of Summer :O)
