                                         "Oh where, oh where has my blogging mojo gone ?
                                           Oh where, oh where can it be ? ?? "

I just had to get that out of my system ! Ang Oh My ! i just realized I published a post without meaning to that had no pictures !!! I removed it and will add the photos and repost it later in the week.

There's nothing wrong with my sewing mojo, BTW ! I have so manny things to show you but I'll start with one outfit today and show you more later.
I've got several things made that I just haven't gotten photographed yet but I was wearing today's outfit yesterday and my hubby thought I looke so nice that I decided to get those pics taken.

This is the kind of outfit that I enjoy wearing as a hostess , which I was yesterday.
Here is the shirt on Antoinette.



Don't you love that print ? it's actually a soft blue and grey mix although that's hard to tell here.And look I found perfectly matching buttons.



I love the collar.



And on me.




Now for the details.For the shirt,I used View B of Butterick 5786 but with long sleeves. Otherwise I didn't change a thing except for my usual alterations for fit.I love  both ways of this pattern and have made it a few times before.

                                              


Wow ! Is this shirt ever long . ! I can't imagine how long the other view is !
The fabric is a semi-sheer polys that is so pretty that you have to forgive it for being polyester.
It's floaty and feels so nice on.

The pants are Silhouette patterns 3100 which is the best pattern ever but I've talked about many times before. this time I used my palzzo version and decreased the flare. I love wearing these. the fabric is a really beautiful scuba knit that feels wonderful against the skin..


                                  I should have worn heels. those pants are too long for flats !!






My pics are a little washed out, darn ! This outfit looks much nicer in person . In the photos, it looks too long doesn't it ? But I love this one . I'm trying to be discerning in adding things that I need to my closet and this shirt is unlike anything elase I already have..

I have to leave for church now so more later from

Simplicity 1463

When I was at Sewjourn in November my friend Kathryn sewed up a gorgeous version of Simplicity 1463.  Since I had some spare fabric with me, I quickly borrowed her pattern pieces and gave it a go as well! There really isn’t much to this pattern. Front piece, back piece, cuffs, neckband. That’s it. It… Continue reading Simplicity 1463

Simplicity 1318 – the wearable muslin

Before I sewed my DCF Challenge version of Simplicity 1318 (blogged last year), I sewed a wearable muslin to get a better idea of what size to choose.  This is a pattern that has been well used in the sewing community.  Both the reviews and the finished garment measurements printed on the pattern pieces indicated that there was… Continue reading Simplicity 1318 – the wearable muslin
