I am working on making Simplicity 9273. I purchased this pattern when Hobby Lobby was having a sale.

Next Project, New Fabric and UFO complete
I had planned on using a black crepe knit purchased from Fabric Mart with a red knit with black dots. However, after considering this match-up, I decided that the red fabric was too heavy to use with the lighter weight black fabric. So I pulled out a black and white striped fabric from my stash that I purchased from Fabric Mart years ago.
I am making View C with the pleated sleeve. I am thinking of using the stripes for the neckband. Not fully committed to that yet. The sleeves and front/back bodice has been cut out. I am practicing using my rotary cutter and it worked great with both fabrics! It is definitely quicker than using scissors. I plan to sew some today.
I recently purchased fabric from the Fabric Mart sale around Memorial Day. It is a woven slubbed challis fabric. I want to make more woven tops and have a couple patterns in mind.
As I posted earlier, I have completed the Love Notions Melody Dolman shirt. This was a UFO from 2020. I took some quick photos as we were getting ready to go out. I will do a better photoshoot in the near future. This was taken in my bathroom using my phone.
I love the fabric but it truly wrinkles a lot while wearing. Yet it was perfect for the very hot day.
