Metallic Denim - Simplicity 8840

So a trend for Fall is metallics and this denim fabric is right on trend and fabulous. This one is sold out but don’t worry, Mood Fabrics has several other options so you can get right on this Metallic Trend.   Metallics would be good in a range of garments, from tops to dresses

Initially, I was going to make a dress, but I only ordered 2 yards of fabric, so I went with Simplicity 8840.  I love this top for the pleating detail and the over-sized sleeves with the ties.

I am so impressed with this metallic denim, it washed beautifully, pressed beautifully and it does not scratch at all!  Here are a couple of metallic denims that are in stock and can you imagine a pair of jeans in this fabric?  YES!
Now back to my blouse, I added one inch to the bodice and a broad back adjustment also.   The details are good on this top as I mentioned earlier and with all these details and I am surprised how quickly it comes together.  The neckline has bias binding.

The pleats just need to be carefully marked and stitched.  I did add one inch to the length on the front and back.
The sleeves were one of the last steps and the knots are just such a nice touch.
This metallic top is just what I needed to hop on this fashion trend within my comfort level.

Disclaimer - I was provided this fabric from Mood Fabrics for a post which first appeared on Mood Sewciety Blog - the opinions are all mine.

  1. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
