Aurora Top & TNT Leggings - McCalls 6173


Can't get enough of either of these patterns. Perfect for a casual work environment while steal holding some style.

I have another top that I made this weekend and wire yesterday. Worn with another pair of the same leggings seen a few months back. More to come...

Having fun...

McCall's 7099 - Floral Jumpsuit

I have jumpsuit fever. Here's a new one for me - McCall's 7099. This was a really quick project. It took 2 hours including cutting out the fabric. I used fabric I purchased for $5.00 total at the National City Swap Meet.

I have another one in the works - I just have to attach the top to the bottom and add the elastic. Stay tuned.....

FO Sallie Jumpsuit from Closet Case Files

So I recently purchased the new Sallie Jumpsuit pattern and have been having issues with making it work. Before scrapping this pattern, I decided to try different fabric. A little over an hour later and I had an AMAZING jumpsuit. It was the fabric...which I'm still hoping to make work now that one is under my belt.

This is a great pattern. I made minor changes which included lengthening the bodice by 3" and adding room to the armscye to accommodate my guns arms. This will not be the last time I make this pattern. It really is as comfy as wearing pajamas. I made it on Saturday and have already worn it twice....

FO - Baby Roots Cardigan

I have completed another knitting project! Hooray. I must admit it feels good to knit. This was for a close co-worker of mine who is having a baby girl. Her son and my daughter (6 months apart) are close friends and go to the same preschool. It was nice to make something by hand for her and I am happy with the outcome. Once little girl is out, I will try to get some fun shots.

The pattern is Baby Roots Cardigan by ADHD Knitting, which I found on Ravelry.  It was a fun project making me wonder why I didn't knit more things for my little girl. Oh well, this dear girl may reap the benefits from self-proclaimed extra Auntie.

Aurora Top from June Seamworks & McCall 6173 Leggings

 I really have been sewing a fair amount. I am just not posting or taking photos of anything for whatever reason. This is my second time wearing my new top in 8 days, so I had to get my coworker to snap a few quick picks. I paired it with a pair of quick leggings I made last night in-between working on a new Burdastyle Dress pattern from the June 2015 recent issue.

I have actually made 2 additional dresses and a wrap from the Seamworks last two issues as well as knit Yarniad's cowl pattern (I still have to block that one, though). I will try to get some more pictures in of the other items soon. I have been back at it with working out so I think I am also a sweaty, tired looking mess and don't want to publicize all of that. Ha ha. Still, the clothing has been nice, so I will try my best if anyone is still out there to view.
