Sew Happy Sunday #3

Sew Happy Sunday #3 features a fall staple- the classic bow blouse and gored skirt. Full disclosure: I made this outfit awhile ago but I felt the outfit was a perfect “fit” to celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  Happy Sunday and P.S. both items are easy to make.



Pattern Info and Details

Both patterns are out of print BUT bow blouse patterns continue to be in fashion and  full flair skirts patterns can be found on all the major pattern sites. 

More times than not I add lining to my skirt patterns Lining allows the skirt to skim the body and flow more beautifully.

Sew Happy Sunday #2

Welcome to Sew Happy Sunday number 2.

Every Sunday  since quarantine, I’ve made it a practice to put aside the workout wear( that I tend to live in during the week) and “dress up” if even just a bit to lift my mood anddd to wear items that are hanging in my closet with no where to go.  This Sunday  it was unusually warm-(even for LA) soooo I decided to put on this comfy and stylish circle skirt that I’ve made more than a few times in a number of fabrications. When I wear this skirt everyone and I do mean everyone comments on the pockets. I have come to realize that we are crazzzzzy about a good hidden pocket and  although this pattern doesn’t have a pocket in the pattern -they  are easy to add to the sides of any skirt.

My GO TO Pattern is Vogue 8882

Etsy Site /Click on Image Sadly Vogue has discontinued this pattern  BUT I have found it on the ETSY site if you’re interested.
