Hello 2015 ! ! !

Happy New Year to All  ! ! !

First, I want to Thank All of You for your continued friendship & inspiration. 
 I am looking forward to 2015 being another great year,
 as well as looking forward to seeing all that you share and inspire....


Here's to Wishing Everyone a Blessed, 
Healthy & Prosperous 2015 !


I'm starting my New Year off with my 2014 Favorites.  This year was more about tops and they added just the right pop to my casual summer work wear.  I made a few dresses experimenting with fun fabrics.


  
Butterick 5672: This pattern (I should correct that, the lining pattern pieces) have become my go to dress pattern, its a simple and classic silhouette that fits perfectly & makes for a great transitional garment.

Simplicity 1849:  Known as my mileage top. I have made this too many times to count.  Every time I wore one of them I wanted to twist & shout because the  twist detail gives nice waist shaping and it's so flattering whether paired with a skirt, pants or shorts.

McCalls 6844:  This cardigan made for the perfect alternative to a blazer or cardigan.

Butterick 6065:  The shaped hemline of this top is the eye catcher and made with a fabulous fabric... pure cuteness.

Butterick 5954:  This top is trendy, and has that here today and gone tomorrow factor.  However, it was perfect worn casually and worked just as well worn under a suit... now that I call a win win situation.

Burda 6851:   I like to think of this raglan jersey tee as my retro sporty look, rocked it with jeans and heels while out & about with my guy or sister.

Burda 7678:  This make was inspired after I purchased a crossover wrap blouse. Paired it with a tank and slacks an it made for a super comfy & easy breezy topper during the hot  hazy days of summer.

New Look 6756: Talk about feeling like a caped diva in training....lol.  I was inspired by others that had made capes and decided to jump on the band wagon. It was so worth it.  I didn't get to wear it too much before the cold set it, but it will be rocked again come Spring.


Now off to do more sewing, more crafting, sharing and continuing to be inspired...

Until then...

HAPPY NEW YEAR Sheila! Love your year end wrap up! I love all of your wears and expecially like love the beautiful hemline of the 6065 top. I bought that pattern because of you and still have not made it yet. That going to be in my first line up for 2015! Good luck to you and so much more sewing in 2015!

You had a marvelous sewing year Sheila. When I saw you make Butterick 6065 I had to run to my cabinet to see if it was in my stash. Made it right away and loved it. Thanks for the inspiration and Happy New Year!
