FO Debutante - Simplicity 2594



So I have been struggling with my sewing projects lately. I have had two heartbreaking (dramatic I know)mishaps with recent projects. It was using the same, gorgeous, yet uncooperative fabric, so I am forced to try to still make it work or face not having a top out of this "I'm in total love" fabric....any who - after a lot of struggling, I was able to finish my 3rd PR Contest Challenge top using Simplicity 2594. I don't want to go into the fact that Simplicity patterns are NEVER what they say...simple. Well, at least for me. I know that several PR reviews on this pattern raved about the clarity of this pattern. I promise I am reading them, just not with anything resembling an understanding. Similar to my recent high-waist pants, I just ended up winging it for myself.



I purchased this 1.5 yards of Debutante Stretch Satin Fabric in Chartreuse Green from Fabric.com for $14.97 total. This is actually more pricey than I usually go, but back in March I was trying out stretch fabrics and went up in price a bit. The fabric is pretty neat. Since I am use to going with prints, this helps compensate as I can't use too many prints that will match for the wardrobe challenge.

This leaves me with two more shirts and three bottoms to go before month's end. As long as I complete my Vogue skirt before the week's end, I will be on track to finish for the contest.
