I need to sew

Last weekend was spent doing a good deed, fixing my friend Gwen's computer, what a nightmare but she's my friend even when it isn't convenient.


This weekend I'm going to be prepared to sew and hopefully will get some done.


This is cut out, Simplicity 2892, I made this top before with a knit fabric, which is not one of the recommended fabrics so we're going to try again with this 2.00/yd hobby lobby print.



This is also cut out and waiting, Simplicity 2852, view C but I'm going to omit the elastic bottom.




And these capri's to match 2852, I'm doing the capri's without the ties so I guess they're really the cargo pants.


And lastly, I've finally decided on the fabric for my maxi dress for Macy's music festival but I can't decide which one to make, I bought the one on the right, Simplicity 2582 with view B in mind but then Hancock had Butterick patterns for .99 and I purchased the one on the left for view D, I like the neckline but I don't plan to do the buttons or ties, that looks stupid to me.



I plan to pair it with this short jacket in white, Simplicity 2652, so please help me decide which pattern to use for the maxi dress.

Two more days until the weekend, hopefully I can squeeze a little sewing in before then.

Hi Tanya,

Love all of them,especially the Simplicity 2852. I'm working on the Burdastyle Jennifer Blouse this weekend,hopefully;) if I can manage taping the pattern pieces together! Have you done this pattern? It was a free download (I'm not counting the ink and paper,lol). Love all your fashions and thanking you for sharing them.
Blessings,
elise

I've been enjoying your blog. I would love for you to come and visit my blog as well, www.sewingwithtrudy.blogspot.com .

My 8 year old daughter has her own sewing blog. If you would like to see what she's up to, go to www.sewingsister.blogspot.com . She is currently learning how to hand sew. In a few weeks she will start learning how machine sew. She is very excited. Her six year old brother is also featured on her blog. He has been sewing right along with us. It's been a lot of fun sharing this with them.

Regards,

I would go with S2582, I also like B5348 minus the ties. You have a great line-up of summer garments.
