I was finally able to carve out some time with my daughter, who was able to snap a few photos of me this past weekend in some of my creations I have completed. Simplicity 8379 has become one of my favorites due to its quick and easy sew. This pattern can be made in a solid or print and it will always be perfect.
This easy summer sewing pattern is Simplicity 1358. It is a quick and easy sew with only four pieces. The 4 pieces include, the front and back, 2 arm holes, and the neckband. The pattern sizing is XXS – XXL. I cut the size medium in order for it to have flow. The chosen fabric is a knit from Michael Levine in Los Angeles, california. I would recommend this pattern for beginner sewers who are looking to complete a first project. The instructions were straightforward and easy to follow.
I am so in LOVE with everything about this dress. I was afraid of it at first because it has darts and pleats. I finished it any way and it turned out just as I had imagined it in my head. The fabric was a must have. I found it at Angels Textiles in the Fashion District in Los Angeles, CA. If I recall correctly it was $3.00 a yard. I call this one my Michelle Pfiefer from Scarface dress. #v9253 @mccallpatterncompany #isewmyownclothes #sewingissexy
I would have to say that this is going to be one of my favorites for the summer. 2 pieces, front and back, 2 armholes, and 1 neckband. Super quick to cut out and even easier to sew. Mine is made out of an ITY knit fabric from Michael Levine’s that I have had in my stash for about 2 years. I’ll be making again soon in a solid color.
Oh how I am in love with this pattern. Quick and easy to follow, even if you don’t use the YouTube video provided with the pattern. I used a knit fabric from Michael Levine Fabrics. A few tweeks need to be made to tighten the wrap, but other than that I am in love with this dress.
