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.
