Jalie 2682 X 2, a Hot Patterns Layering Tank, Vogue 9207d and some other things

I’ve been on Christmas vacation and don’t go back to work until tomorrow, so I have had sewing time!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!  It’s been so awesome!

Things I’ve gotten done:

Two Jalie 2682.  Seriously…I LOVE this top.  I went up three sizes to ensure that they’re be big enough in these thick fleeces.


I recently bought some zippered pull over tops like this from Land’s End ($14 Each!!!!!) and they’re very nice.  I think between the 2 I bought and the 2 I made, I should be set for awhile.  I also bought some vests from Lands End and they’re really, really nice too.  I’m not a huge shopper, but the next time I want clothing like that, I’m going to go there first.  My sewing room and piano are both in the basement so I spend a lot of time down there and it is a little cooler than upstairs.  I find that with a fleece and a vest, I’m comfortable!

Here’s a pic of my hubby in his Fallout Apron!  I bought this fabric from Spooflower last year and made him some things for Christmas.  I only had just enough to make him an apron…and i had to put the print on it’s side.  There wasn’t even enough leftover for a pocket!  He doesn’t care…it’s his favorite video game, after all!    This is  KS 3613 without any length adjustments.  Kevin is about 6’4″.


On to Vogue 9207!


Overall, I like it!  I should have done a forward shoulder adjustment on it though.

That brings me to the next thing…the Hot Patterns Layering Tank. I worked carefully through my fit issues and love the result I got.  I did a series of muslins  and posted on the HP Fb page.  Here are the adjustments I made:  3/8th” forward head, a 5/8th” SBA, a 1/4″ front neckline tuck and I curved the front dart out by about 3/8th”.   I love my end result!  And this goes together very quickly!


Today I plan to work on a sheath dress. I’m currently deciding between Mccalls 2401 or Burda 7137.  I want to take the fitting adjustments excluding the SBA and apply them to the pattern and see what happens.   I would love to have a fitted sheath dress…that actually fits!!

By the way, I’m also on Instagram as fabricthreadclothes. I’ve never been a big instagrammer, but I’m going to try it out and see what I think.


Happy Sewing!
