New Releases
#1 Winter Wear Designs released the Ma Cherie this week. A super sophisticated classic shirt in sizes 1-12. You can read my review here: Winter Wear Designs Ma Cherie

#2 Gracious Threads released the Eclair Top. A great tried and true pattern that lends itself to some creativity, in sizes 2-12. You can find my review here: Gracious Threads Eclair

Behind the Scenes. I may have signed up for too many pattern tests this week, but nothing I can't keep up with!
#1- Winter Wear Designs Henley. This is a loose fitting henley in shirt length only. Includes options for a real placket, faux placket or a plain t-shirt.
#2- 5 out of 4 Men's Sierra Pull Over. This is you favorite warm cuddly pull over, with a twist. Longer zipper makes it easier to put on and more comfortable to wear. Funky contrast cutting lines means you can really mix and match to make this fun.
#3- Kb Stitch Designs Ladies Polo/Henley. Yes another Henley. No, I'm not crazy. :) This pattern includes 2 length cutting lines, a more fitted look and a really fun color block piece. Throw in a polo color piece and they're not the least bit the same!

On the cutting table.
Think I have no time to sew other things while I'm testing? Think again. Finished this week
#1- A flannel Winter Wear Designs Button Up. Winter Wear Designs Button Up This one is SO comfy and warm and makes me happy. Its a great layering piece and I may never put buttons and button holes on it. Its as nice and finished on the inside as the outside. <Swoon>

#2- A super bright Winter Wear Designs Button Up. Not sure if I love this yet. Waiting to see if it grows on me. The gray chevron actually has glitter. It might be too much. But maybe if I layer it over all black, it might be ok. It is still missing buttons so we shall see.
#3- A muslin for a pair of pants for my husband. I'm using the KB Stitch Designs Splendid Slacks and hoping to get the perfect fit for him. Up until recently, he hasn't reaped the benefits of my sewing addiction. Time to change that. KB Stitch Designs Splendid Slacks
#4- 2 Pairs of Patterns for Pirates SOS Pants. 1 in shorts length the other in full length. These are one of my staple pattern pieces so I can't own too many pairs. Patterns For Pirates SOS Pants

Planned for next week.
I'm still trying to piece together my own Fall Capsule. So far, gaping holes include a
-Dress. I still haven't picked a pattern. I need something with sleeves and that might look good with the flannel I bought last week. Joann's Plaiditutdes Collection
-Some warm tunics. I'll probably use the Pattern For Pirates Raglan with add on pack. Patterns for Pirates Women's Raglan I have this fabulous unicorn print from Purple Seamstress that will be awesome. Purple Seamstress on Facebook
-Cropped cardigan. I just grabbed the S.U.A.T Fauna cardigan. Despite my love of prints, I'm making it in plain black so it will match with everything. Stitch Upon a Time Fauna
-If by some miracle I still have sewing time left (HA!), I'd like to try out the new Laundry Day Tunic and Tee By Love Notions. Grab your copy (FOR FREE) by joining the Love Notions Facebook group and grabbing the coupon code. Love Notions Laundry Day Tee
