Butterwick 6096 Lace Top

QLast weekend I finished Butterwick 6096 view A with long sleeves. 
I used a stretch lace underline with a tissue weight modal/silk knit. The modal/silk knit is very soft. This was a slower make with having to cut out 2 different fabrics and then hand basting them together. 
After 2 easy makes it was nice to have a project that was more involved. I find that alternating easy and harder makes keeps my sewing mojo up. 

I found there to be a lot of ease is this pattern so instead of cutting a 14 on top and a 16 at the waist, I cut the whole pattern as a size 14. I'm glad I did as there's still lots of ease but that's part of the style. Another change was lengthening the torso my usual 1 1/2". However, it's still a little shorter in the front than I would like. In the future if I make this one again, I will add another 1" to the length. 
All in all I love my new top :)

Yoga Pants Jalie 3022

Also completed last weekend was yoga pants! Pattern is Jalie 3022. 
I've made this pattern 3 times so it is a TNT. I love Jalie patterns, the drafting is great and ready to wear finishes. 

The brown knit was picked up from Fabric Mart during one of their sales. It's so soft and a lovely fabric. 

Sorry for the crappy photo. 

I started my next project yesterday and I'm hoping to finish today :)

Nightgown Simplicity 3696

Last weekend I found my sewing mojo and completed 2 projects :)

First one is a nightgown from Simplicity 3696. I used the pattern once before so it was ready to go. 

The knit fabric was picked up from Fabricland bargain section. It has a fair amount of poly in it and was seriously off grain. Is there anything more annoying than trying to straighten off grain fabric?

Anyways it was a fast make which is what I was in the mood for.  Next post is yoga pants......
