Happy Wednesday!!! Hope your week has been going well so far!! I've been sewing what seems to be like non-stop trying to finish up a couple deadlines lately and I was in need of a quick sew project for some instant gratification!! Simplicity 8383 to the rescue, but before I get into it....
Question: Did you know anything about a #SimplicitySewingChallenge? I didn't! This weekend I was on Instagram and saw this pic...
and immediately started trying to figure out what this challenge was all about!! Well, after clicking multiple hashtags, and photos I still can't tell you exactly what its about!!! LOL!! I saw a couple makes using different patterns, but mostly from Simplicity 8342, and Simplicity 8383. I figured "hey, I've been wanting to make this pattern all summer, and I love cold shoulders.....why not sew it up!!"
Reaching for a Floral Liverpool Knit that I bought from LaFinch Fabrics, I got to work. This was the perfect make to take my mind off my other projects, and I really enjoyed sewing this pattern up!! It comes together REALLY quick. I mean stitch the back, shoulder, sides, attach sleeves, sew on neck and armhole band, hem and you're done!!
I did fail to measure the length though! I wanted a dress and because I was assuming the model has to be 5'8'' or up, I figured it'll hit me at the knee......wrong!! Not a problem though, I just grabbed my favorite pair of jeans (I only have 2 LOL) and now its a cute tunic!
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great rest of your week and I'll talk to you all in the next post!!
