Lauren Top

Sinclair Patterns has come out with another amazing pattern--the Lauren Top and Dress.

I chose to sew up a top with 3/4 sleeves in a drapey sweater knit.
I made the error of using more of a 2-way stretch than a 4-way--this fabric has minimal vertical stretch. It would definitely work better in 4-way but is definitely still wearable in what I'll call 2-way!
The drapes fall so nicely and the neckline is done so that I can bend over without any modesty issues.

It looks great either with jeans or a skirt, hemmed or banded.

 The asymmetrical neckline is what drew me to the pattern at first--it is different from any of the other patterns I have in my big stash of patterns.

Be sure to pick up your copy of the pattern here

Joggers and a Favorite

Happy New Year!
I've been sewing again! 
Quite a bit actually. 
If you follow my Facebook Page you can see all that I've been up to.
But, I thought I'd share a little on here about one outfit I sewed up recently.

Both fabrics I bought in a destash at the beginning of the year and I finally got a chance to sew them up. 
The pants are the Hudson Pants by True Bias in an athletic knit.

The top is the Favorite Tee by Patterns for Pirates in a double brushed poly. 
I chose the curved hem option and raised the neckline by at least two inches. 

It is such a comfy outfit--perfect for these winter days where I don't want to leave the house!
