The next projects

Well, I was able to cut out another skirt using the now perfected McCall's skirt pattern; and I was able to use a similar blue fabric. I have to admit I had forgotten about this blue fabric and glad I decided to "shop my stash".

I also started on this Simplicity top pattern.
I only needed to make a slight FBA. The back pattern piece is one full piece. That proved to be a little tricky with the swayback and narrow back adjustment but I think it came out well. The back piece can be cut on the straight or bias grain depending on the front pattern piece you use. I am going to make view C, the floral print one shown on the envelope. My fabric is a solid color in soft aqua or light teal.
I have cut out the front pieces and will do the remainder this afternoon. This top will go with the print skirt as well as the blue one. The over blouse will be a McCall's pattern and I need to work on pin fitting it. This blouse will also be worn on its own with the printed skirt and will go with blue skirt as well.


  1. I love that pattern! I started on it and while NOT paying attention when I was using my serger, cut a hole in it that couldn't be fixed! I can't wait to see yours all finished up!

  2. Oh, I have that top pattern. I'm anxious to see it made up. It's a good piece to wear under a suit.

  3. That looks like a very cute pattern.

  4. Oooo, Linda, I love that pattern. An aqua/teal will be so flattering on you!! I can't WAIT to see it!

  5. I have this pattern, but haven't used it yet. I am doing the PR pattern stash challenge, so hopefully I'll get to it this month.

    The teal color will look great on you with this pattern.

  6. Linda, I have a blouse cut from this pattern too. I didn't do a FBA, hoping there was enough "styling" ease to compensate the girls. lol Looking forward to seeing your version.
