Simplicity 1499- Jacquard Knit

Simplicity 1499 from Mood Fabrics' jacquard knit



The temperatures here have been so mild, which is nothing to complain about at all.  The above normal temperatures call for a garment perfect for the nice weather.  A new vest using Simplicity 1499  and the perfect match, Mood Fabrics' Italian Cobalt Blue Paisley Jacquard.  This knit is just a bit heavier and full of texture.   These two fabric features made it a good choice for my vest.

Blackwood Cardigan from Helen's Closet Patterns made in a Mood Fabrics' Pique Knit.


I needed another a Blackwood but this time in the shorter length.  It is just such a great pattern.

Vogue 9227 - Stripe Knit

Vogue 9227 made in a cotton knit stripe and contrasting pique knit neckband and trim


Vogue 9227 has been on my list to make since it first came out.  This shirt came about after two fabrics just fell together when I was planning some knit seperates

Burda 6458 in Mood Fabrics' Cotton Voile - great pattern for statement sleeves


I am still really enjoying the year of the sleeve!  This time a Burda pattern, which I don't sew very often but should look at them more often
