It may not be quite cold enough for a Poncho here in California, but I sure do hope the weather will change and soon. Made this quick and easy Poncho out of a lightweight sweater knit fabric from The Loft at Michael Levine’s in Los Angeles. If I remember correctly it was about 4 yards left and I took it all. The pattern isa Misses’ Poncho with a Belt. I made View C which does not require the belt, but will be making the belted view, View E soon. I cut a size medium, but probably could cut the size small. I like my ponchos a little roomy. I like to wrap up in them when it is cold.
This top turned dress, is a must make. Burda 7065 was one of the very first wearable garments that I finished when I first started to sew, 3 years ago. It was one of those moments when I realized I can totally do this sewing thing. The fabric is nothing fancy, just a regular black knit fabric I am sure I picked up from Hancock Fabrics, oh how I miss them. My plan is to make this pattern again using the same technique of extending the top to a fitted dress. I watched a Mimi G Style from YouTube for the details on extending the top.
This Off-the-Shoudler Maxi Dress is a modified version of Simplicity 8045. I made it without the top band. This dress was made for a Fashion Show that I participated in, in Los Angeles, CA, during the Mimi G Conference. It was a great experience but I was more nervous than I have ever been in my whole life.
I cut this in a size 10 and the fit was perfect, the only alterations needed were the length, I am a little bit on the shorter side, so most maxi dresses and or skirts require me to alter the length. The fabric used is a Army Green Knit from Michael Levine’s Fabric store.
This is one that I will make again for the Fall/Winter, if we ever get those seasons, right now it is 110 degrees on average for the next few days.
This fabric is one of my favorite prints from Michael Levine in Los Angeles, CA. I have had this fabric in my stash for about 3 years. The floral is just enough without being too overwhelming. The pattern is Simplicity 1167, from the Mimi G Style pattern line. It also comes with a free easy to follow step by step YouTube tutorial. I cut out a size 10 and extended the back for more back coverage.
I was finally able to carve out some time with my daughter, who was able to snap a few photos of me this past weekend in some of my creations I have completed. Simplicity 8379 has become one of my favorites due to its quick and easy sew. This pattern can be made in a solid or print and it will always be perfect.
