Today I'm sharing Simplicity 8466 and McCalls 7726! Lets start with the Simplicity Turtleneck first! This is a great turtleneck. It comes together really easy and its a good project for beginners that are comfortable with zippers. My favorite features for this top are the sleeves (of course) and the hem bands. I love hem bands, forget about sewing narrow hems, just sew on the band and go!! One thing I will say is, if you're not comfortable with midriff, be sure to lengthen your top. I did not lengthen mine so I'll always wear it with something high-waisted, or under something like overalls.Read More
I really enjoyed making this dress! The instructions were easy to follow along with, and it came together great! If you can install a zipper, and facings then you can definitely make this dress! For fabric, I used Cotton Lyrca from The Fabric Store! I love this fabric! Its a great stable knit, with awesome recovery!Read More

Happy Thursday!! Today is Day 4 of Bodysuit Week and it's all about the traditional turtleneck View D of Simplicity 8513.
When planning out fabrics, I knew I want View D to be in black. To me its just classic, and I can wear it with basically everything! This view features a collar, and has center back seam zipper.Read More
Today we're sewing View B of Simplicity 8513 and this one is probably my favorite because I love the bell sleeve and its the easiest to make!! For fabric, I used a Liverpool Knit from LaFinch Fabrics. I talked a little fabrics in my first video, but out of the 5 I made, 2 were Liverpool knits and those are my favorites!! The extra stretch in the fabric makes it a lot easier snapping yourself into the suit.Read More

So it's only right that I end the week with a quick, awesome, and fun project thats probably gonna be multiples in my closet!!!Read More
