Mad About Plaid


Oh, I'm so NOT original in my titles. : )

But when fabric.com had plaid shirting fabric on sale for $2.49, I succumbed to the pull and bought 4 pieces. I already had this pattern in mind, Simplicity 2447, and I hope to make it soon in one of the plaids. I plan to sew view A in the shirt length, not tunic length. And I AM mad about plaid---wearing plaid, but not matching stripes when sewing plaid.




Simplicity patterns were on sale for $1.00 so I also bought this cute skirt pattern (#2665). I do not need another skirt pattern, but isn't this a nice pattern? Think of summer skirts.... Warm weather will be coming one of these day, although I have my doubts with all the snow we've been getting here in Oklahoma.



I'm still not sure when I'll get the time to actually, sew, but I am still dreaming....

  1. I am just a beginner at sewing. I recently bought Amy Butler's pattern for a small bag. It was really simple. The bag came out really nice. So I thought to myself.. I can do this.. I bought a pattern for a dress, took one look at the HUGE piece of pattern and at all the different lines and I totally gave up. Is it as complicated as it looks?

  2. I love the skirt pattern. I buy patterns just to dream and hope that I can actually sew them some day.

    I'm glad you liked our hanging heart bags, and thanks for stopping by. Right now I have posted a scarf refashion. Turned a shirt into a gorgeous scarf.

  4. Mom, I really like this pattern too... can't wait to hear how it turns out. I think it would be really cute to make longer as a dress...

  5. Ugh. Plaids. They are cute, but only if someone else does the cutting and matching.

    I like that tunic pattern, but wonder if it would be too young looking for me. Might have to check it out.

  7. I succumbed to the same sale! Got two pieces (an olivey-limey-plaid labeled "Mason" and a peachy-rusty one labeled "Ayden") and I'm planning on making a couple of BWOF tops out of them. When browsing for something else, I stumbled across a feature in there where everything was plaid and got inspired.

  8. I just bought a plaid shirt that doesn't look too different from the one on that pattern. :)

  9. Hiyah, That skirt pattern is easy, and looks great! I've made it several times already using flowered cottons and contrasting the bottom with coordinating print.
    It swings so nicely when you walk. :-) I look forward to seeing your completed skirt!

  10. Hey, I just bought that skirt pattern too, but ended up making a different one. Now I have to wait until next break to think again. I love looking at your stuff!
