Pattern Review: Simplicity 3536D (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #4)

The final top for my Pattern Review Wardrobe Contest entry is an oldie but a goodie – A remake of Simplicity 3536D.  This was one of the first patterns I ever made, way back in 2011, and despite my imperfect sewing, I loved the top so much I wore the fabric past the point of … More Pattern Review: Simplicity 3536D (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #4)

This is the second item for my spring capsule/Pattern Review Wardrobe Contest.   I’ve entered the top-making phase of the contest, one down and 2 to go.  This isn’t the sort of top I typically wear, but I actually really enjoy the shape of the sleeves and relaxed fit. Here is my version: Here is my … More Pattern Review: Butterick 5388C (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #2)

Pattern Review: BWOF-03-2003-109A (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #1)

When I came up with my original Sew Geeky plans, this jacket wasn’t on it at all, but I added it to meet the criteria of the Pattern Review Wardrobe Contest, and I’m so happy I did!  I love this jacket!  Simple, casual, warm, easy, and colorful.  Definitely fits with what I’m wanting to wear … More Pattern Review: BWOF-03-2003-109A (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #1)
