More, more, more...

After finishing the blue knit hoodie, I started right in on more projects. So far I've traced two patterns and washed one of the fabrics. But I just haven't made enough time in the evening to work on them.

The next project will be the Jalie 2449 crossover top in a fairly vibrant and wild orange/red/black "graffiti" printed stretch knit that I purchased at Hancock Fabrics. If the pattern fits right I plan to make another version of it in a red knit to go with this skirt that I made last summer and haven't worn yet.

I also traced off this blouse from the May 2006 Burda magazine:

I'm hoping to squeeze the blouse out of a little over a yard of 58" wide fabric and either make the ties out of something else or see if I can use the selvedge instead of making the ties on the bias. I'm not sure it'll be possible but I'll see. I'll also have to make a muslin first because I'm sure I'll have to tweak the fit.


  1. Fun patterns! Can't wait to see them done up!

  2. You are quite the seamstress. Great stuff!

  3. I love that blouse too and have it on my 'to do' list. It's a long long list :)
