Shirts for Sewvember

I am borrowing the "Sewvember" from Instagram, a tag from Bimble and Pimble's Sewing Photo a Day Challenge.

I have several things I would like to sew but number one on my list is some new blouses.  I have plenty of fabric for shirts/blouses and the right patterns, so nothing is holding me back.  Especially since the time change and fall back now, darkness comes early, which means more time in the house.

The patterns

1.  The Archer- of course

2.  Butterick  5526

4.  Vogue 1387

5. McCall's 6436

The fabric - which is all from Mood (and many sold out - I will link the ones still available) - I have been collecting these fabrics way over a year and it is about time they are turned into garments.

1. A cotton dotted voile but not too thin - maybe a summer fabric but will be a beautiful blouse

2.  A crepe de chine - oh, this fabric is so wonderful, the hand and the softness of the fabric.  I think it will probably be
 McCall's 6436

3.  A white-aqua paisley stretch poplin = probably will be 5526

4.  A Theory White stretch shirting -no picture with the white but will be an Archer

5. Red Silk which is planned for 1387

6. Maybe these two together a Paisley print and dotted poplin in an Archer

I started with a small shirt - for the little guy using leftover fabric from my popover shirt  using the Johnny B Good pattern

What about your sewing plans?  Any other suggestions for my fabric?


  1. Such a lovely line-up of patterns and fabrics!

  2. You are going to be busy. Looking forward to seeing those blouses. That little shirt is just the cutest ever.

  3. Looking forward to seeing them all but especially that vogue pattern!

  4. I have the same aqua paisley that I was planning an Archer (it will be my first Archer) I have a few tops planned also I can't wait to see your blue dotted voile - what a beautiful color!
