The Great Module SewAlong: Reveal!
Today is the big reveal for my entry into #thegreatmodulesewalongon Instagram, hosted by Whitney @tomkatstitcherycarmel and Carla @carlamayfield5
Back in January, after hearing about the Module Sew Along on Whitney's You Tube channel, I started to give the whole idea some thought. I pulled fabrics from my stash, purchased one or two, and started to think about pairing the fabrics with patterns. I was able to use patterns from my collection as well, with the only exception being a pattern purchase from Megan Nielsen Patterns: the Tania Culottes. I had already purchased this pattern for the January Sew My Style challenge.
If you look closely, not all fabric in the pile was used, and not every pattern I had initially pulled
was used either.
I've never been as organized and and considerate in my choice of garments to sew, and I really liked this approach!
From left to right:
Simplicity 9020: a loungewear set consisting of an oversized boxy T shirt and pair of joggers (with pockets!), I added some text using heat transfer vinyl to break up all that gray space.
Mandy Boat Tee: A free Tee pattern from Tessuti Fabrics online shop, using a gray knit
Kwik Sew 2948 (OOP): this sweater set pattern has been in my collection for years and never used. This vintage polyester fabric worked great for this tank.
Blackwood Cardigan: this pattern from Helen's Closet designs is my TNT cardigan pattern, and the leopard print fabric from Hobby Lobby was a new purchase specifically for this challenge.
Simplicity 8529: this pattern for the Toaster Sweater from Sew House Seven designs is a keeper! Made from a lovely textured stable knit from Beautiful Textiles.
Tania Culottes: The Sew My Style January challenge was to use this pattern from Megan Nielsen Patterns, and I used a gray rayon twill from my stash. I know I will enjoy wearing these once the weather warms up here in the Midwest!
Butterick 6388: I added this dress to my module as an extra addition: I love to sew and wear dresses. This is one of my favorite makes, and I wear it a lot! Beautiful Textiles also had this fun bonded knit embossed with a cable knit pattern, which was perfect! After reading many reviews of this popular pattern, I decided to leave off the front pockets, to eliminate added bulk.
I did it: 2 bottoms, 4 tops, 1 topper and 1 dress!
With a "stay-at-home: stay home, stay safe" order from our Governor, we will continue to self-isolate as we have been doing since last week. I see more sewing in my immediate future!
Prayers for those professionals on the front lines of this pandemic.
