Jasper Sweater

Jasper Sweater made in a lightweight sweatshirt knit

What makes you think about a garment you made and really like to wear?  For me, it is wearing the garment again.  The Jasper Sweater is one that I just didn't wear enough right after I made the first one.

McCall's 7100 - Velvet Bomber for Niece

Blue velvet jacket using McCall's 7100 and fabric from Mood Fabrics

In December, I made my velvet bomber and wore it to a family Christmas.  My 17 year old niece loved it and asked for one.  I said yes, I will make you one and she tried on mine for size

Scout Tee

Grainline Patterns Scout tee made with Mood Fabrics

This project was finished at the end of 2016 but didn't get worn until 2017.  It was a very quick project and one that was perfect to get me back to the sewing room after the holidays.

Mood Fabrics' Plaid Flannel Archer Shirts

Mood Fabrics' plaid flannel Archer shirts
For  me a winter wardrobe staple is a plaid flannel shirt and I was in need of a new one.  I went with Mood Fabrics’ Maroon/Gray Tartan Plaid Cotton Flannel and it is such a nice weight for these twenty degree days.  My go-to shirt pattern is the Grainline Archer Shirt, which I have made many times including two on another Mood Sewing Network post.

Archer Shirt for Kailtyn
