Silhouette Patterns and Fit 2 Stitch

I have been watching Fit 2 Stitch for the past few years on our public broadcasting station and this weekend while we were at "hunt camp", dear hubby brought his WIFI jetpack and I was privileged to watch unlimited YouTube videos of past webcast.  What a wonderful weekend!

I like Peggy Sagers' approach to sewing and fitting.  Her methods are very "common sense" and I seem to be able to understand her teaching.  She is very matter of fact and has a lot of great suggestions on fitting.  I also really like her dressing style.

I have not bought any of the Silhouette patterns but after watching a few webcast I am very, very interested in a few.

The Silhouette #112 Kacy's 5-way Top is on top of my want list.  I think that this top will come in very handy with Church and the Fall season.  I'm thinking my mother might like one too!

Very Versitile

 I also like this skirt pattern.  Maybe one in denim and one in a khaki twill fabric?

  I like Silhouette Pattern Cardigan and tank pattern too but I just bought the Butterick B5760 for the cardigan and jacket after seeing all the rave reviews at http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/reviewgallery.pl.  How could I not buy this one?
 I'm a little on the fence about buying the Silhouette Patterns since they are $14.99 each.  That is the most I've EVER paid for a pattern...........But I REALLY, REALLY like them!

We're going to the beach next week for a mini vacation, I'm hoping to whip up two new sleeveless dresses to wear at the beach.  I looked into my box of ITY knits and found a tropical print and a floral print that looks beachy. 

By the way, I fell off the bandwagon and bought more fabric!  I didn't mean too, but www.fabricmartfabrics.com had a sale on knits and I just couldn't help myself.  I will try harder to not buy more fabric after this.  I promise, I will TRY!

Until next time..................



  1. Nice pattern picks. Its like a say, as a seamstress am 'material'istic hahahaha

    1. You are soooo funny! Thank you for the nice comment.

  2. I agree, nice pattern choices. I have the ck pattern and also purchased it for the cardigan. Have fun at the beach next week.

    1. Here in Florida it's 100 degrees and I am so excited to make the Butterick 5760 cardigan..... What's wrong with me?

  3. I like all the patterns. I'm really curious to see how you get on with the 5 way top. That should be really interesting!

    1. Thank you for your kind comments.
      I'm excited too. I couldn't find anyone wrote about the 5 way top, so I'll try to document it a little more in depth to help someone else.
      Thank you for taking a peek at my blog.
