Celebrating my wedding anniversary!

Hey Ya’ll

So i got a little busy with sewing lately, and didnt get a chance to post on my blog. Also, this week was our wedding anniversary for my husband and I!!! We celebrate 6 years of married life, and I do so look forward to whats next in our lives!

WATERFALL CARDIGAN

 

Fabric: POLY KNIT

Pattern Description: I found this lovely waterfall cardigan pattern from…….WalMart! And the price is an EVERYDAY $0.97. I was very excited to find it after digging for an hour or two. The pattern is Simplicity Sew Simple A1047. It might not be on the forefront with the other patterns, so please dig though the drawers until you find it.

Pattern Sizing: M

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The pattern was very simple,  even for a beginner.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didnt have to make any changes!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I plan on making them in a different array of colors. Next time,  I might have to add at least 3 inches to the sleeves to make it longer.

Kick Pleat Pencil Skirt

Fabric: cotton

Pattern Description:Simplicity 2392, View D

Pattern Sizing: U.S. size 14

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The pattern was very simple,  even for a beginner.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make any changes.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would sew it again. I would not fold over the elastic in the waistband though. Next time, i will attach the elastic waistband to the skirt. I was told afterwards that the FOE (FOLD OVER ELASTIC) method is only good for stretch fabrics. The skirt is cotton and has no stretch.
