Simplicity 8454

Simplicity 8454 in Style Maker Fabrics' rayon crepe

Do you have those fabrics that you have been paired with the pattern and just sitting there waiting for you to sew that garment?  Well, this is one of those garments, waiting since fall for me to sew.  I love this fabric and the pattern, which I will be using for several more tops.

Toaster Sweater in a Chunky Knit

 I made another Toaster Sweater, one to brighten up my winter closet for the hopefully just a very few more cold days we will have. The House 7 Toaster Sweater in Mood Fabrics' Mauve Cotton Chunky Rib Knit. This was a great fabric-pattern combination and I love the chunky feel of the sweater knit. I feel like I should be in a ski lodge by the fireplace with a hot chocolate.

Nikko Dress - Waffle Knit from Mood

True Bias Nikko Dress made in Mood Fabrics' Waffle knit

  Have you been watching the Olympics? I have a bit and that got me thinking, knit fabrics are a bit like the gold in the sewing world, or at least to me.
