Hello to the big reveal! I must say, me and my sewing machine are getting along quite nicely. Here is my latest creation! I fell in lust with this earthy fall pattern of black, grey and espresso coloured roses at my local Fabricland. It's a silky polyester, so it definitely presented some sewing challenges but thanks to pleats, a busy pattern and a tent fit - they camoflouge nicely. One friend even said it looked like a Forever 21 dress! (I blush)
The pattern was a super simple pullover style that could be cinched with a cute belt. In case you're wondering about pattern sizing, I buy regular sizes and simply add on to the cut pattern to allow for more room. Then I pay careful attention to fitting the piece to myself.
It's a great pattern with lots of other options! I'm definitely a gal obsessed, but I can't wait to try out my next project - maybe some baby Christmas gifts for all the new moms I know?? Or some handpainted tea towels for Grandma? It must be the fall weather, but I'm definitely feeling extra creative lately! How about you?
