Busy, Busy, Busy

I’ve been holding out on posting all week until I get pictures of the three (3!) new garments that I’ve made up but I just haven’t been able to get any taken. Instead of being silent the whole week, I’m going to leave you with a few sewing patterns that have caught my eye.

This print-at-home pattern from Salme is just divine. My biggest complaint is the sizing – a 37″ bust is surely not an XL.

I’ve been in love with the Miz Mozelle Dress from Jamie Christina for a few months. The sash, the keyhole neckline…. even the peter pan collar – the details are just perfect.

I’m such a fan of Megan Nielsen clothing line and I was thrilled to see this little number for sale as a sewing pattern. I love that the dress would work in both solids and prints and you can be assured that I’ll be sewing this up!

Have you used any of these patterns? I’d love to hear about your experience if you have!

  1. I haven’t heard of any of these patterns, but they all look awesome. Thanks for the links!

  2. Lizz, I haven’t mad any of these patters, but Florence of “Flossie Teacakaes” made the Mizz Mozelle his summer. You can see her finished version here: http://flossieteacakes.blogspot.com/2011/07/making-miz-mozelle-dress.html

    as well as a post reviewing her modifications and fitting issues here: http://flossieteacakes.blogspot.com/2011/07/miz-mozelle-toile.html

    These patterns al look lovely but for some reason I think elastic waists look awful on me… maybe I should give one a try…

    • Thanking you for linking to Florence’s dress – so cute! I appreciate that she’s my same height and I’m sure many of her mods will be ones I’ll need as well.
      I was noticing that all of these patterns have elastic waists while I was writing this post and had to laugh at how consistent I am. I appreciate the comfort of elastic but I do find myself wearing a belt over the actual line for some added definition.

  3. thanks for the links to these patterns! I’ve followed Megan Nielsen for awhile, but never heard of the other two. I’m always looking for some new patterns to try out!

  4. Thanks for sharing! The salme pattern really looks great, I also like some of her other patterns.
    I made the other two dresses in the last days! What a coincidence! They’re both great, I recommend them!

  5. All so lovely! You’ve introduced me to so many new companies!

  6. Oh so neat! I hadn’t heard of Salme before but I’m pretty sure I’ll be snapping up that dress pattern! I wonder how many little independent print-at-home patterns are lurking on Etsy that I’ve haven’t heard of?
