Up next

Moving on to my next projects.

I purchased this pattern, Butterick 6687 in 2019. I was drawn to the top the model is wearing and also like two other versions. The fabric I am using has been in my stash since 2016.

I purchased this when Fabric Mart had precut fabrics plus a pattern to go with it as a bundle.  I never made the dress pattern that came with it even though I had good intentions.  It was a McCall's pattern which I no longer have. This is 100% polyester so when it gets to be really hot, I doubt I will wear much especially with long sleeves.  I decided also that the next project would be a woven fabric and this was already in my sewing room.

I also have decided that once this is complete, I will tackle a pair of casual pants. I am going to use Simplicity 8389. I plan to sew View D, the orange pants. I am uncertain of the fabric I will use. They need to be somewhat drapey. I had thought about using the fabric above at first and knew that I would not be comfortable wearing pants with this type of print.

As you know I am not a pant sewing sewist.  I have made a few good attempts with more fitted styles.  My last pair was okay but I had made so many adjustments and failed to keep track of all them that I really could not replicate the changes with the pattern.  I decided if this does not work out then I will have a great pair of pj's.

More later!

  1. Nice choices! I really like both patterns, and hope this style of pants works well for you. I have that I be too!

  2. Looking forward to your experiences with this pattern. I bought it just for the interesting sleeve options...boat necks are a non-starter for my sloping shoulders so I'll just use the sleeves.

    1. Sometimes this neckline does not work for me and I end up scooping out a little in the front. I do purchased this because of all the sleeve options.

    1. Good to know this fabric worked well. Let's keep inspiring each other as I have seen several new garments you have sewn recently and helped motivate me.
