What I'm Sewing...

I just got my order of the new Vogue Patterns in the mail so last night I picked the one I was going to make first which is of course V1314 by Tracy Reese (mark my words! this will be a VERY popular pattern this season) and so once I decided on the pattern I went online to do some fabric shopping at Gorgeous Fabrics  and of course in true Ann form she had so many great fabrics!

For my V1314 by Tracy Reese Pattern I picked out this Floral Delight!!


More Fabric....

Of course while I was on the site I saw this super cute fabric to make myself another pencil skirt from my uber EASY tutorial and this fuchsia and black Sassy Stripe Fabric double knit is just what I need, it is so fabulous!


Then there was this ONE which I hough was great because the dots start small and get bigger, LOVE how subtle that is but way cute.

  1. Last night my mom and I made two pencil skirts from your uber easy tutorial. It's a great tutorial. Love both my skirts! Thank you much! I am telling everyone about your tutorials. My friend made the maxi skirt from your tutorial on Sunday and she loves it also.

    Thank you for mentioning the fabric(s) you used to make your garments when you do the tutorials. It makes life so much easier for people like me who have never sewn a stitch.

  2. Like the shoes. I just bought that pattern last week. Love the floral touch. I also am getting ready to sew up my sew a long project and make some baby shoes for my niece. Love the nail polish. Is that mojito madness again?? Or another color? Can't wait to show you the pics for the sew a long!!!

  4. This pattern is having me jump for joy. I've been wanting this pattern just as badly as I've wanted a good pencil skirt pattern. I will also do some sexy back cutouts for some of my dresses. EXCITED. This was right on time! Thanks....

  7. I just got my new Vogue Fall patterns today. The Tracy Reese dress is definitely in the bunch. As a matter of fact the fabric that I plan to use for that dress is similar to what the model is wearing!!! I love your nail polish!! You look awesome as always.

  8. This one was in my order too. Vogue really outdid themselves this time. I can't wait to see yours. I have about 5 more pieces for Summer that I want to sew and then I think I'll move on to Fall sewing. I love how you put these colors together and made it werk!

  12. I'll add this pattern to my collection also. I love the floral fabric, Florals can be tricky but this one is gorge. I'm finishing up your strapless maxi out of a beautiful floral print fabric. A winter coat sew a long would be fab...Just sayin'.

  15. Mimi,

    Love the outfit! Have those shoes in orange....so inspired by you to wear them. I was tempted to send them back because I wanted them in blue :-(...But, I can wear the jean cargo skirt with a green top like yours and my orange heelless wedges. You are AWESOME!! Thank you for all that you do!
