Vogue – V1663 – Misses Jacket

Posted on by 0 comment


Hello all,

I just finished the sweater/jacket portion of Vogue V1663 as part of a sew along through one of my online groups.  The Vogue pattern as a whole is a co-ordinated wardrobe comprised of three garments; the jacket, a long sleeved knit top and knit pants.  I do plan on making the other pieces, and will use the recommended Ponte to do so, but haven’t decided on colour yet.  I’ll trace off the patterns this weekend and decide then.

Vogue 1663 – Three Piece Co-ordinates

Posted on by 0 comment


Hello all and Happy New Year,

Well, we made it through another year and are now at the start of the ’20s!  Have you made any sewing resolutions?  I haven’t really, but do plan on making some time to add some much needed basics to my wardrobe.  I made this my focus a few years ago, and need to do so again.  Items like knit tops, cardigans and basic dresses in solid colours provide good foundation layers in any wardrobe.

I’ve mentioned before that I belong to a number of sewing groups in Facebook.  In one, we are starting a group sew of Vogue 1663.  Here is the pattern sleeve photo:

Vogue – V7975. Next On The Cutting Table

Vogue 7975 Pattern Cover

Ah, the little French jacket. There are so many wonderful versions that have been beautifully sewn over the years. Many fellow seamstresses have used Vogue 7975 as the basis of their creations, and have very graciously shared their insights, tips and process. Inspired, I spent an hour or so this morning, tracing out View E of V7975. I will be making this with a lovely navy and white boucle that I purchased last summer at Mood Fabrics, during a trip to NYC.

Some New Online Friends and V9183

Posted on by 0 comment

Hello all,

I happened upon a lovely group of inspirational sewing folks via my Facebook feed earlier this summer.  The focus of this group is to work through a defined list of sewing patterns with the intent of sharing tips, hints, ideas and creative comradery.  A new pattern is selected each month and as the members complete theirs, they post their thoughts on fabric selection, alterations and progress pictures with the end result of showing their completed garment.  You can jump in and do one challenge, or all of them – it is entirely up to you.

It is always amazing to me that with social media we have such a wonderful way of connecting with like minded people around the world.  It has certainly enriched my life.

Vogue 9154 Misses Skirt Is A Winner

Hello all,

I have seen a few renditions of Vogue 9154 on Sewing Pattern Review and have had the pattern for a few months now.  Last weekend, as it was cold and rainy, I tucked myself in my sewing room and made this skirt with some navy wool that had been purchased last season.   I truly could not be happier with the result.
Here is the pattern envelope picture for Vogue 9154.  I made View A.
