Up Coming Sewing Projects

I am so excited to start blogging!!!!! I thought it would be neat to show you my up coming sewing projects. So here it goes......

My First Project

So several weeks ago I went to Hobby Lobby and found these two pretty cotton fabrics. I plan on making a knee length skirts out each one. Here are a few examples of what I am thinking of:

My Second Project

Awhile back I bought this floral linen on sale at Joann's. I wanted to use it to make a 1950's dress. The pattern I was originally going to use Butterick 6835 I couldn't find. So I decided to use the lovely Simplicity 1459!! I am going to make view A but with short sleeves.

My third project
A good friend of mine and I are each going to make this next dress together.

 ...............and we are making it out of this fabric

My four project

So I am soooo excited about this last one!!! I am going to attempt to recreate Elizabeth Bennet's Netherfield ball gown from Pride and Prejudice 1995 movie!!

I will have a separate blog post on this one when I finish it :)

 I searched and searched for a exact look alike fabric but I wasn't finding one. This is the closest one that I found. After several bodice mocks, I got the bodice to look the same as the dress and then cut the other pieces out. Now to sewing it!!!!!

Yours Truly,


  1. That's so neat that you're going to sew Lizzy's dress from P+P! All of your other projects look scrumptious too - I love the fabrics and the patterns you have chosen. Can't wait to see how they turn out!

    1. Thank you Reyna!!! I am really excited to start these projects especially Lizzy's dress!
