Vogue Patterns - 1355 Misses' Top and Pants
Looking for a dead easy pair of comfy pants? Then this is the pattern for you!! These pants, designed by Sandra Betzina, have no side seams and are drapey on the inner leg.

Simplicity - 2603 Misses Knit Top and Cardi-Wrap

Kwik Sew - 3106 Nightgowns
I made this gown (View A with View C sleeves) for my mother. She is a pear shape and very large in the hips. Be aware that this pattern is quite large in width! I did have some issues with the yoke - it was cut on the fold and sewn in a different way than I would've thought but other than that it ... more...

About Me
