Next Project, New Fabric and UFO complete

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


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.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by, always appreciate comments.

  1. Will the sleeve be made from the stripe? The striped cut out piece in the photo is rather unique looking but I am guessing it is the sleeve. if so think they will look so good. Can't wait to see the finished top.

    1. Thanks Audrey! Yes I am using the striped fabric for the sleeves. It is an odd shape sleeve with pleats sewn at the seam.
