Simplicity 2187 and Self-Stitched September


So I have been sewing, but not really feeling like I have been happy with the projects' outcome. That was until Simplicity 2187. I cannot express how happy I am with this one! It was an easy project that I sewed up on Sunday evening. I cut the pattern and fabric for a week ago. If I knew how quick and easy it was, I would have cut TWO different fabrics to make another one immediately after the first one. Speaking of fabric - this knit was bought a year ago for a cardigan. When I dug it out, I knew it would be perfect for this jumper dress.


I have received a lot of compliments on this one. It seems to be slimming too. Bonus! Comfy AND slimming? Who would have thunk it. lol I have plans for this pattern in my near future for sure. I will also try the pants-jumper for this pattern also.


As far as Self-Stitched September goes...I can't decide if I will commit to doing it or not. The funny thing is that I have managed to wear at least one piece of clothing that I have sewn or knit everyday since Me-Made-June. So why not join in for this one? I think I have been slacking more on the photo taking. Well, now that I think about it, my co-worker is back to work from maternity leave and she always makes me look skinnier than I really am in real-life takes one striking photo after the next. Count me in....
