HI DARLINGS! Happy Monday. I have been trying to do my best to keep up with everything but man oh man things are really hectic over here. I have a few deadlines, some really great new projects we are working on and planning our wedding. I have been meaning to record new episodes of BUSINESS SHET but time has gotten away from me. I am hoping to carve out time this week to record a few episodes. As far as sewing goes well… I have managed to squeeze in a few new pieces like this corduroy trench and skirt!

My new SIMPLICITY SPRING PATTERNS are already a huge hit and they haven’t even arrived at all the stores yet, lol. Thank you so much! This CORDUROY JACKET is made from my latest pattern, I wanted to show it in a warmer weather fabric and since the color is so rich and I had a yard left I thought I would make a matching skirt. I will have SEW-ALONG VIDEOS for these very soon.

PATTERN: SIMPLICITY #8890 (started shipping to stores)

FABRIC: This fantastic corduroy is a wide wale and it has no stretch. I can’t for the life of me remember where I bought it but if I had to guess I would say it was from MINERVA CRAFTS but it was a while ago so I can’t be sure.

STYLE: I kept it simple with big hoop earrings and my thigh high boots from STEVE MADDEN (similar ones HERE).
