and yes, another simplicity 3835

Simplicity 3835


This peasant blouse was the result of a packing panic for my recent trip to New Orleans. Like usual, first the pressure, then the brain freeze, and then the urge to sew myself a whole new wardrobe to take with me. Ending with the compromise to sew one simple shirt that I still didn't have time to make. The panic was much more focused this time, because I was trying to fit shoes, toiletries, and all my clothes for the long weekend in a small carry-on bag.

So it can really all be laid (layed? I guess I should know that) at the door of Delta Airlines, which now charges a hefty fee for any bag you check. Southwest Airlines, can you please come to Atlanta?

  4. Love the texture, is that a linen?

    Thanks for the note :). Doing really well, been BUSY. I've actually gotten quite a bit of sewing done, just no time to blog much about it yet. I need to catch up! Lots of fun projects on my list for the fall that I'm looking forward to continuing to cross of.

    Hope you're doing great yourself! Have fun in New Orleans.

  5. Brilliant pattern, it never gets old b/c you can change it up so many different ways! :) I really like the necklace/belt with it too, nice work!

  6. Hey, guys, thanks so much. I actually have already taken the trip, and it was great. I corrected my verb tenses in the post.

    Mama Pea, yes, you too can sew clothes. Seriously, if I can do it, anyone can.

    Katie, great! Looking forward to seeing some of this crafting you are talking about.

    Kathryn, thanks, and you are so right about that pattern. Still not done with it.

  7. Katie, sorry, forgot to say it is not linen, it is shot cotton, really inexpensive. Got it at Fabric.com.

  8. Oh, but they are! I've been thinking the same thing for so long. My sister's in Atlanta and I'm in Baltimore but I heard that Southwest and Delta are merging! Woo! Lovely top by the way :)

    I should really get around to making that pattern sometime...

  12. Well, whether it is with Delta or with AirTran, I'm ready for Southwest to make its ATL debut. Hopefully with no fees for checked baggage.
