Sewing three versions of a knit top and dress from Ottobre Design Magazine

What happens when you find a pattern that you love??? You make all versions of it, of course. Last month when the latest Ottobre Design came in the mail (women’s issue 5/2013), I was so intrigued by a raglan tee with shoulder darts. I’ve sewn lots and lots of raglan tees for my kids, and none of them had shoulder darts. I know that raglan patterns for woven fabrics usually have darts, but this was a knit. I just had to try it.

Pattern review: A lovely blouse from BurdaStyle 1/2010

Yes, I finally got around to sewing something for myself this week! This blouse is number 133 from BurdaStyle 1/2010. I love to sit and browse my favorite women’s patterns and pattern magazines and I was really nervous cutting into my precious hello kitty Liberty of London fabric (without having made a muslin version first), especially since this is my first BurdaStyle pattern to ever make. But the magazine model was also made with Liberty lawn so I knew my fabric choice was good, and I decided to trust that I could make any fit adjustments if needed.
