Dress and Cardigan

I sewed a couple more items recently. The dress is New Look 6922 - very simple dress made of a knit. I love the colors. Click on photos for close ups.

And then I made a knit cardigan from Kwik Sew 3693. These are so comfortable - - stress free dressing and perfect for travel as they can be folded in a suitcase and then worn immediately. I LOVE knits!!


Simplicity 2766 Jacket

I've been sewing a lot lately and have more pictures and reviews to upload. Here's a new jacket. I should have picked a heavier weight fabric, but for a "muslin", it went together nicely and now I can pick another more substantial weight fabric to make another one. You can read the sewing review in my sidebar.

Edited to add: I received a comment that this is boxy and pilgrim-like. I appreciate the comment. The pictures show it on the dark gray side, but it is really more black with little white specks. What do you think? Too boxy, pilgrimy? I don't think pilgrims would be using those flashy buttons - lol. I was thinking of making a shorter version - not as short as the pattern, and also a different color.

Pearly's volleyball season is over at the local high school. Her JV team didn't do too well, but she was able to play Varsity and this week she will suit up with the Varsity. That has been a pretty big thrill for her as a freshman.
