Not Much Blogging, but Sewing Some on this Highway I call Life!

My life was traveling down Easy Lane until all of a sudden, I got drawn down Busy Street, onto Hectic Highway.  I've been traveling down the hectic highway for a few weeks now, but I have found some sewing rest areas along the way.  Here are a few of the items I've sewn over the last few weeks:

Vogue 1250                           Sew Simple A1638


 
and
 
M6752

I am not able to add my pictures to the Sew your Own Wardrobe Challenge, so if anyone can post my pictures, I do appreciate it.  Happy Sewing as we travel down life's highway!

  2. Great dresses and top Melanie. Love them. I have posted them for you on the challenge website. I am interested what you find better - the Vogue or the McCalls as they look similar. How do they sew and fit compared to each other?

    1. Thanks a lot BeaJay, your a Godsend. I actually like the McCall as far as the fit for me. Because of my build, the McCalls is more figure flattering. They were both easy to make, but the McCalls I think is a few steps quicker even though the Vogue is only two pieces. I actually love them both and can see myself making both of them again.
