Vogue 8750 Complete

Yay!! I'm done and I love the pattern....

Pattern Description:
Fitted and flared skirt in various lengths

Pattern Sizing:

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, they were easy to follow.  Construction was easy as well.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I think the pattern is great.  The edge stitching/edge stitching is a great detail on the pattern.  The curved seams are also a beautiful detail.

Fabric Used:
Moleskin.  It is the first suggested fabric for the skirt.  It was perfect, however, I'm not a fan of having to top stitch moleskin.  The pattern calls for edge stitching, however, my was a bit wider.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None.  The waist requires grosgrain ribbon for stabilizing and it works great!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely!  However, I probably wouldn't use moleskin.  I will try it in another fabric.

It's a great pattern, and it will be a "go to pattern" in my collection.

  1. I LOVE that skirt. The fabric is fabulous as well as the fit! I'm a bit hippy so I have to be careful with pencil skirts but I am tempted to try this one. Looks fantastic on you.

Simplicity 2151 - Linear polka dots!

It's a wild print, but I went for it!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Princess seams--they are my favorite. The sleeve detail is nice, and the collar style is my second favorite (shawl collars are my favorite). The length of the top is great for slacks. It's roomy without being too loose. The fit is "Amazing Fit" series.

Fabric used: 
Silky print, but I would love to make it in a print that has just a bit of stretch.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. The "Amazing Fit" series is great and offers alternate bra cup sizes. That's why I chose it. The fit really is great.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, however, in a different fabric. The fabric I selected puckers easily.

Good staple top as a wardrobe builder. I could do with a red, black, and white version of this.

Busy Season...Some Sewing, Some More Sewing, a New Book, and Even More Sewing!

Well…the past few months have been exciting! While it appears I haven’t been sewing, I have completed a few garments…. I have also been busy launching a new book as well! I'm reviewing 4 garments in this post!  

Columbia Style WeekNatalea and I were asked to construct some of the garments for this year's event.  It was our first time working with "drafted patterns."  It took a bit of getting used to the idea, but we both managed to complete the garments for which we were responsible!  I learned that I routinely underestimate how long it will take to complete a garment.  I made both jackets (Natalea made the blouses).  My estimates came in at about four hours each.  I will at least 4 hours short in both estimations!  We were constructing right down to the day before.  It was a great experience, but I prefer not to sew under that sort of pressure.  I think I'll pass next time :-)

McCall's 6564 and NewLook 6107I love this fabric, and the top is great, too!  It ru…

I'm in on this...are you?

I love the show, "The Great British Sewing Bee." I hear there is one being produced for the US. In the meantime, Deepika over at PatternRewiew is hosting "The Great Pattern Review Sewing Bee" that begins in November. You'll have less than a week for each round of competition, and what's already in your stash should suffice. Comment below if you decide to participate! I'll keep you posted....
