FOs - Moneta and Knit Top with Faux Leather Leggings


Clearly I have been sewing up a storm. Unfortunately my ability to blog about it is another story. I finally took out some sweater knit fabric and sewed a top. I am LOVING this outfit! I can't lie. From the faux leather leggings using my TNT McCall's 6173 pattern to the easy, two piece sweater using an old pattern I had in my stash but never tried before (McCall's 6204). I have already made another sweater top in a less gauzy, more casual fabric. All fabric from this post were inexpensive finds (think a couple bucks each) at the National City Swap Meet.






So I also have been in love with making Colette Patterns lately. Here is my first Moneta.  It will probably be one of several. I also made a top using Colette's Myrtle pattern. Pics to come once I wear it to work. I love the neckline (hard to see from the picture) and the in seam pockets. It is comfortable and a great wardrobe addition for my casual workplace.





Anywho - time to run, here's to getting my sewing mojo back *squeal*.
