So without further ado...my Top Five!
This started out as a duster and became soooooo much more. This is my favorite make of 2017 and it doesn't hurt that my daughter took some A-MAZ-ING pictures of this coat. It's the first coat I've made in years and now that I'm removed from the sewing of it, I'm really thrilled with it.
In the number two spot is ~ New Look 6340 in Denim
Version four of this TNT pattern is my favorite from the series of the dresses. It works so well for my lifestyle - either dressed up with heels or dressed down with my sneaks and a cardigan. It also cemented my love for denim and how it can work in my life.
The Cashmerette Concord Tees and Dresses earn the third spot for 2017
I wore some version of this pattern all summer long especially my white tee...and I'm carrying it into fall with long sleeve concord tees and tunics. This is the pattern that just keeps on giving.
Number Four would be my shirts.
I made five different versions of my TNT pattern - a mash up of OOP Vogue 7700 and OOP Butterick 5978.
These are my favorites from the five I made. I like my original one too but the blue rayon one is going on my Top 5 Misses list. I also found out that I really like sewing shirts and all their fiddly bits! I have quite a few on my to sew list for winter and into spring.
My last garment in my top five is the new Cashmerette Rivermont Top
This top is everything and I plan on making more of them in 2018!
...if I had to list a favorite pattern company for 2017 it would be Cashmerette Patterns. Jenny has designed a pattern line for us plus, curvy, thick or big busted women that is just amazing! If you haven't sewn a Cashmerette Pattern I'm here to encourage you to get on that! Don't waste anymore time! Buy just one pattern and sew with it and you will see why I love this pattern line so much. You will definitely see more of these patterns in 2018.
I will have my Top 5 Misses up next.
...as always more later!
