I would like to introduce you to Erin.
Erin is a pattern from the Style Sew Me pattern collection. Erin was selected for the April 2019 #sewyourview pattern on Instagram. I selected View B, why? It has pockets of course. Just kidding, but I really do love a dress with pockets. You really should check out all the dresses the ladies have made over on Instagram. Simply BEAUTIFUL!!!!
There are 5 pattern pieces to Erin. 7. Back Facing 8. Front Facing 9. Back 10. Front 11. Pocket (the numbering starts at 7, as View A has pattern pieces 1-6). There are 13 steps to sew up Erin, View B, to me the fewer the steps the better. Not only are there 13 steps, there is also a YouTube video to follow along to, the video is only 19:55.
The fabric I used is from Nicole Miller, purchased from Joann Fabric. I was drawn to the color combo and the paint splatter effect that it has. This fabric is definitely something different from my regular florals and bright colors, but it was one I had to have. When I saw this pattern I knew this fabric would work. I love the outcome.

April 10,1975, wide leg jumpsuits, bright bold colors, I was really feeling this fabric and decided to use it for my birthday outfit. I didn’t have much time to decide on a pattern so I went with one that I knew was a quick sew and one that I loved, McCall’s 7755. I started and finished this pattern 2 hours before I went out to dinner.
I have made this jumpsuit twice before and loved the outcome. I think is starting become my new Tried and True (TNT) pattern, at least for Spring/Summer any way. You can also read my previous blog on McCall’s 7755 here.
I highly recommend this pattern if you want to make a jumpsuit and need an easy straight forward pattern you try this one. I just absolutely love jumpsuits right now, who am I kidding, I love jumpsuits and maxi dresses/skirts all the time.
I apologize for the lack of blog posts in the past few months. I had foot surgery in my right foot, the sewing foot, lol, and was out for about two months. I am back getting my summer, we don’t have Spring here in California, unless you count allergy season. So stay tuned for mire posts coming up in the next few weeks.

Jumpsuits, Pants, Cardigan, and a Top
These are a few of the patterns that I have purchased for my Spring/Summer sewing plans for 2019, these will go along with my Make Nine for 2019 linked from a previous post here. There aren’t a lot of new patterns that I have seen that are not similar or almost identical to a pattern that I currently own. It could be that I own too many already.
A Jumpsuit is an extremely versatile article of clothing. Dress it up or down, either way it makes for a great outfit. For this Jumpsuit, McCall’s 7909 I am liking View B. Usually not a fan of the ruffled sleeve, but this one is speaking to me and if I can find a pretty floral piece of fabric, I will be a happy girl. I plan on sewing the bodice up a little higher just not to show off too much skin.
Another Jumpsuit that caught my attention, is View A of McCall’s 7872. This will be a great outfit for date night or girl’s night out on these hot summer nights that we get here in California. McCall’s recommends using the following fabrics and lining to complete this Jumpsuit : Fabric: Crepes, Charmeuse, Suiting Fabrics, Crepe Back Satin. Lining: Lining Fabric. I haven’t decided what type of fabric I would like use, but it will be a solid color.
These pants are absolutely beautiful and designed by one of my favorite designers Nicole Miller. I love her designs and these pants are on the LOVE list for sure. I love the blush color on the pattern, but would definitely want a pair of these McCall’s 7911 pants in black or even a navy blue. Not so sure how these pants would look in a printed fabric, who knows I may try it to see. Florals are the print for Spring.
McCall’s 7912 was selected as the monthly pattern for Sew Your View for February by @thatssewmonica over on Instagram. Unfortunately due to my foot surgery I didn’t get to make it in February. I am still going to complete it in the upcoming months as I play catch up on my sewing plans. I can always use a cardigan even when the weather is hot outside as the office I work in can get really cold at times.
This top, McCall’s 7750, I am not so sure about, I like it, but I don’t love it, but hopefully with the right fabric choice and a great fit, I may change my mind. I can see View A or B, with or without the sleeve ties as the Views to make. Tops and pants are what’s missing from my wardrobe for Spring/Summer.

For this pattern, I made view E, for the second time (see last photo for first one). I love that the dress is versatile and can be dressed up or down, depending on where your headed. It can be worn with boots for a dressy look or it can be worn with sneakers for a casual look while running errands on a Saturday morning.
There are several fabric suggestions that McCall’s has listed in the pattern, Sweatshirt Fleece, Frech Terry, Cotton Knit, Velour. For my fabric selection, I choose this Red, White, and Black Camouflage print from the Fabric Outlet in San Francisco, Ca. The link is Here, but this color is no longer available on the website. I did purchase this fabric in store.
I typically don’t wear this style of top, but for 2019 I am stepping out of my comfort zone. I had just enough of this fabric leftover from making McCall’s 7833 and Vino is the color of winter. One of my favorites along with mustard yellow and hunter green.
I do like the way it fits. I styled it with a pair of white leggings and Vino knee high boots. These boots are a pair of my favorites, not only for the color but also the comfort and the heel height is perfect.
