I’ve been rather shell-shocked since completing the 30 Day Dress, and knew the only way back to the sewing machine was through an instant gratification project.
This pink and fuchsia cotton jersey from Mood Fabrics was one of those fabrics I ordered just because…….
and it turned out to be my saving grace. Buy a fabric you love and the pattern will appear ;)
I couldn’t think beyond the word e a s y and selected Simplicity 1613, View D – a great remedy for the jaded sewer!
View D requires crosswise stretch only so most any knit will work, but this cotton feels quite wonderful against my skin.
I discovered the pattern runs slightly large – ok for now since my top is very casual, but I plan to cut a smaller size next time.
And there will be a next time – maybe in a linen jersey (very Eileen Fisher) or a metallic jersey which is popping up everywhere.
But now it’s time to head back to more involved projects, and I’m super excited about my next one in DVF Lace.
