Project Runway is inspiring!

I love Thursday!! There is nothing better than sitting in front of the sewing machine watching Grey's  Anatomy & Project Runway. I was very motivated to knock this top out. I wanted  to start pants next but shied away. I have to get my nerve up.

This top was great and easy. I wanted something with the cowl neck, it was new to me. This was an easy to sew and I can see making it again. It was so easy that I skipped muslin, wish I didn't .  I altered the pattern to size but I forgot to adjust the armholes. The pattern was a lot smaller in fit so at the end I had to add side panels to accommodate the hips (I make the long version). I will take a picture with it on tomorrow.

Pattern: Simplicity 2594

Fearless February may have motivated me, but I know this will continue for months to come. Next : Simplicity 4971 or Butterick 5692 for easy pants and tops. Still looking for a maxi dress pattern.

Keep on keeping on!!!



  1. Hello Cezanne, I'm visiting you from sew your own wardrobe for a year, I see you've joining the fitted blouse contest, i did too I hope I didn't get into more than I can handle, I just wanted to have fun making a blouse after all these years of not sewing for myself, looks like a lot of profesionals there lol

  2. Thank you for looking at my site. I am no where near a professional. Sewing relaxes me so it is all for fun and a sense of accomplishment. I look forward to the blouse challenge also. Good luck to both of us :) Thanks!
