Sewing Today-42807

I finally got in some sewing time. Not actually sewn anything together yet. I did finally get the serger set up to begin the KS top. I had the perfect brown serger thread to use and got the stitches set and ready to go.

After that I cut out Simplicity 3775. I am making the short version like the one the model is wearing but I am going to use 3/4 inch sleeves. I had to make a FBA-5/8, forward shoulder, swayback and shortened the skirt pattern by 1.5 inches. I fell in love with this pattern and have read two reviews at Pattern Review with both sewist having good success with the dress. One did not use a knit, but peach skin and lined her dress. I was impressed with the look of her dress. She couldn't say enough good things about the ruching. It is suppose to be slenderizing and the look of her dress on her proved to be so. So I am going with the ruching effect as well.

I have not found the photos I took of the fabric I am using to make this dress. It is a lovely knit with the right stretch for this pattern with some body without being too much! I hope!

So when I finish the KS top, I will be ready to make the dress. I am hoping both garments will be completed quickly and will then be ready to tackle an eyelet blouse with lining. Stay tuned.


  1. Linda - how timely - I just picked up that pattern today. I looked forward to seeing your interpretation of it.

  2. I missed Hancock's Simplicity sale, but Hobby Lobby has the patterns for $1.99 right now - I'm getting that one!!
