Simplicity 2257 and Butterick 4815




Back

Front



Simplicity 2257
Skirt view A
Misses slim and flared skirts, each in two lengths.

Fabric: Ladies your mother always told you not to buy no cheap a fabric. Well this fabric I got from JoAnns and it was started fraying as I was sewing it. But I kept with it because I had already started with it. So I will wear this outfit until it fades away. LOL!

Conclusion: This was a fun skirt to make. If I knew how to alter patterns I would have widen it in the hip area a little more. The waist fits great and I love the length I will be making this skirt again.

Butterick 4815
Vest view B
Fitted, lined vest has neckline and front closing variations and princess seams.A: faux collar, double-breasted and ribbon belt. B: back flounce.

Fabric: same as skirt.

Conclusion: Love this vest will make it again. No troubles making this vest.Direction was clear and easy to follow.

IF any of you could give me some names of some good books that teach pattern altering let me know. Thanks!!

Well that's it for me happy crafting to all!!! :)
