The start of a tunic and a dress

I went to Fabricland today, completely on a whim.

I've been wanting to make some dresses and blouses and ALL Simplicity patterns were on sale for $2.

Yep, $2.

And I'd been drooling over these patterns for the Lisette patterns for awhile now. They're made by the same designer as Oliver + S patterns. So I picked up all 4.

How could I not? They're usually $17. Each. So $8 for four, that's a steal.

I'm planning on working on this one today:

I'm going to make the green dress out of the pink and a tunic out of the blue:

It might be a little difficult to cut patterns and sew today (maybe even longer?)...

I had a little accident yesterday while taking Freyja outside.

I slipped on the deck and sprained my wrist.

It's not too bad, but my fingers are a bit swollen.

Hopefully, it won't slow me down too much :)


  1. Cute patterns... can't wait to see how the projects turn out! I may need to get over to the fabric store and check those new patterns out for myself :)

  2. Yikes, I hope you are feeling much better now. I have made a few clothing items over the years, mostly for my nieces, but clothing sewing is not my love. Quilting is more my game. Now I just need more time, more money, and a fabulous machine, hehe.
