McCall's 7445 in Gingham Stretch Cotton Twill

Mood Fabrics' gingham cotton stretch twill made into McCall's 7445

 Pinterest was the inspiration for these gingham culottes and I am so happy I took a look for an idea.  I really love the look of these and will be so fun for the dog days of summer.  Let me restate that as the dog days of summer mean the hot, sultry days of summer and as cute as these culottes are, the are not cool.  So my gingham culottes are perfect for the air conditioning while the hot summer is on the outside! I love this Theory Black and White Gingham Stretch Cotton Twill but I am so sorry it is sold out.  I just looked last week and it was available but I am sure many others fell in love with the gingham!  No worries, there is a nice selection of Mood Fabrics' Stretch Cotton Twill from floral to solid.  The pattern is McCall's 7445 which I have made before in a wool pinstripe and was on Mood Sewing Network in February.

Vogue 9260 - Jumpsuit Turned Top

Vogue 9260 jumpsuit made into a top only

Sometimes things don't turn out like the picture in your head.  This top that was a jumpsuit is just that type of picture.

I bought Vogue 9260 with the intention of making myself a fun jumpsuit.  My main problem is making a size too big, I went with a Medium and should of done a small.

Simplicity 8084 - Maxi Dress

Style Maker Fabrics' Les Fleurs Birch Floral Rayon Navy sewn into a Simplicity 8084  maxi dress, designed by Mimi G

This Maxi Dress is love at first sight and I am not sure which sight I mean.  At first sight when I initially made this pattern, first sight when this fabric arrived at my door or first sight when I put on the finished maxi dress.  I think I will just say all of the above and I so happy this maxi dress.

Navy is the Theme for Three New Tops

McCall's 6964 knit top

I tend to sew in color families, especially with knits.  I feel it saves time as I don't have to rethread the serger, sewing machine and cover stitch machine.  So today, I am sharing three navy tops.
