I'm glad I got to more easy sewing as it takes much less time to sew panties or shirts or even trackpants than historical dresses or WGT outfits! The fabric I used for my latest dress was a grey polkadot jersey from the last fabric market I visited. You might guess it from the pictures: I made that d*mned waterfall pattern again! This time I used view D (with short sleeves) of Simplicity 1716:
With all that talking about the shirt I made for my mum, I was inspired to sew yet another version which actually perfectly fits my blog background. By accident, I swear!
I planned to make longer sleeves - half arm to be precise- but cut the fabric the wrong way. The outer parts of the sleeves were connected, the middle would have needed another seam; sometimes I'm really asking myself if my PhD made me more real-life-stupid! ^^ Anyway, the sleeves were long enough to shorten up a bit and hence the sleeves are short and summery:
And look at that sweet twin needle hems!
Do you have patterns you use over and over (and over and over and over...) again? Should I rename this blog to "Mindless Indulgence - Waterfall sewing"? Or just try out more of the many, many patterns I own?
