Last projects of 2012

With only a few days left I am sewing a couple of projects......this McCall's 5050 top which I am making into a dress........

Project #2 is this girls sparkly tunic top from Hannah Montana Simplicity 3514 pattern.  

My daughter picked out this pattern a few years ago when I first started sewing clothes & I thought I better sew it before its too late!  I have been having  issues with the freaking sleeves so hopefully I will get it done for her to wear on New Year's Eve.

I would like to thank all my blog friends & followers for your comments & emails this past year as I really appreciate your support!  It has been kinda of slow sewing this past year for me with major house renovations, my illness, Confirmation, another daughter graduating & yet another entering high school.....meanwhile I am going back to college to attain yet another degree so hopefully I will have more time in 2013 to sew more projects.  Life is great right now!

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year & & happiness.

Cape Dress

I had 2 meters of this knit sweater fabric & thought to make a cape dress of my own design.

Very easy to make....measure for neckline & sew the 2 sides up at around 18 inches.  I used my serger for the hem.

I made the neck so it would be a little off the shoulder & added grosgrain ribbon for a tie around the waist with a front bow.   This is my comfy at home dress but I have worn it with black tights & wedges for date night which I will post on my Photo Diary Blog when I get some pics!

Sew you later!
