Just a little sewing

An oldie but a goodie, this is McCalls 5662, view F. This first time I made this pattern I made view C and noticed too late that the back was low cut, I like this version much better. Didn't have enough fabric to cut the front and back on the fold so there's a front and back seam but I still like it alot. The fabric is from my Wal-Mart stash, I think it was .50/yd.

Since this fabric is so thin I lined the bodice with my favorite--knit tricot.

I used my double needle on the neckline, sleeve and hem.

I also finished another pair of Butterick 5221, these are black linen. Wanted to show my RTW waistband trick, I put elastic in the back which allows for a snug but comfortable fit.

They're basic black and don't photograph well but you get the idea, this is my third pair so I guess it makes it a TNT pattern.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Vogue pattern giveaway I hope to have them in the mail this week.

Happy Sewing.

Let the Flickr Fun Begin

I finally had a chance to upload the pattern pictures, click here for the slideshow. I'm only going to do this until Tuesday, please view the slideshow and select at least two patterns in case someone chooses the same one I will have at least two to choose from and hopefully everyone will get one that they really want. Please email me with the pattern numbers and your mailing address and I will try to get them sent out as soon as possible. My email address is:

Thanks again for all your encouragement and support.
