Finished Items - Simplicity 2061 and Simplicity 2192

I bought Simplicity 2192 explicitly for the sweatshirts. I've seen a couple of renditions of the shorts/skirt that didn't look as scary as the pattern envelope (Like THIS), but I don't think the bottoms of this pattern will work for my body.

I chose a simple white sweatshirt fleece from S.R. Harris at $4.50/yd (used under 1.5 yd). I like my version. I couldn't fuss with the weird directions on the waistband. It's a little snug because it's not meant to connect at the sides, it's vented. Oops.

I chose Simplicity 2061 for view B. I'll make view A as well, I like the ease and simplicity of the pattern. I like non-fussy patterns! These pants had the front and back pieces, the leg bands, and the waistband. 

I don't see myself wearing them as part of an outfit like the pattern cover. I think they're more casual pants for wearing around the house or quick errands. Kind of like sweat pants but nicer. My pleats don't look the same, I think I stitched too far down. Those leg bands are kick ass cool!!!!! Stitch a pair of these! :)

Hancock is having a sale on Simplicity March 14-19 for $.99!!!!

I love 'em! They're uber soft and quite comfortable. My 14 year old wants a pair! Yay!!! Grey knit fabric from S.R. Harris for $4.50/yd (used less than 1.5 yds). A total of $11.50 for a cute, casual, comfortable outfit. I'll take it!

  1. These are AWESOME! You are doing so great! You are an inspiration to me! I just started sewing again. I was never amazing and have a hard time following patterns to entirety. I just bought 5...wish me luck! The McCalls #6083 is how I found you. I want to make that for the summer! You look fab in it!
