Simplicity 1325

I've actually been on a good sewing spree lately. This was touch and go for a while because I tried it on and it was tight, too tight.

I added a very sturdy zipper instead of an invisible zipper and I added a godet right under the zipper. I really like this pattern and may even sew it up again. The fabric is a faux leather from JoAnne's from a few seasons ago. The fabric sewed up easily with no problems.

Pattern of the Year

Love Butterick 5985, Normally I make a pattern once, but I've sewn this one up in various forms three times. This time I added the bodice and collar from Simplicity 9602.

The pictures are terrible thanks to the cold weather we've been having in Minnesota, you don't want to step outside unless you are forced to. This fabric is from the new SR Harris Outlet in Burnsville. It is a double knit fabric with silver metallic dots.

I once again used the middle flounce only and omitted the zipper.
