First - have you seen Phyllis' amazing Holiday Party Dress over at The Sewing Divas? I love that she shared the total process of making the dress...explaining how and why she did what she did and even giving a few book references! This is one amazing dress from a very simple Vogue pattern!
Second - my girl Isabelle of Kitty Couture has finished her Simplicity 3631 jacket! Ooooolala! I love how she handled the sleeve width issue...surf on over and see it! Its a wonderful interpretation of an awesome jacket.
Next - Christina at Assorted Notions has made the kewlest winter coat! I know that there have been several other versions of this coat made - Sigrid - and I know that Cindy has one up her sleeve - but I really like the fabric that Christina used. She has lots of pics up on her blog of the construction techniques she used, go by and see it!
And finally, this is the jumper that everyone is making! There are six reviews of this jumper on Patternreview even though I have personally spotted a few in blogland that haven't been reviewed - Barbara.
On the accessories scene there are two of note:
Ann's LaRue bag for her BFF! I hated this bag in the movie, "The Devil Wears Prada" and most of the versions that I've seen since. However, I can truly appreciate the ying and the yang of this version ~ pettably soft on one side and smooth as wine on the other! Just skip over that nasty Patriots obsession she has going on and check out her BFF's Christmas present! *LOL*
Vicki's aprons that she made for her co-workers...again aprons per say are not a favorite of mine but I can so enjoy the splendor of her ruffled aprons! So check them out! Besides isn't that the coolest thing to do, to make such wonderful gifts for the people you work with...
Last but certainly not least...Tany! If you have not managed to visit Tany's world, all I gotta say is what is wrong with you!? What rock have you been under?! *LOL* Cause I want to be Tany when I grow up! My goodness gracias me can this woman sew! And not only does she sew at a level I can only hope to attain but she is gracious and kind, supportive and loving, and very giving of herself and her sewing knowledge! So if you haven't visited her before ~ go and be enthralled and if you have go again anyway! *LOL*
Also, thank you to everyone who posted a comment on my last post, "What do you love about sewing?" There are some amazing answers there...many that just made my heart sing with understanding, acknowledgement and joy! If you've read the post but not the comments, get a cuppa, open the comments box up and enjoy!
I'm out...off to bed to go back to work tomorrow to make that money! 'Cause I got fabric to buy! *LOL* More about that later...
