I am currently experiencing an odd bout of creative block. Think writers' block, only in my case I have no desire to do anything creative. I feel out of sorts about this. Making things is such an integral part of my life, and now I don't know what to do with myself. My current project is a plum wool jacket and I'm lucky if I can force myself to sew two seams a day on it. I'm not experiencing any fit issues. Why am I so bored? What is my problem?!
Since I obviously have nothing new to show you, how about my picks of the new Simplicity patterns?
Up first is this very popular Cynthia Rowley design. I heart the jacket very much.
The flared skirt on the model is my pick from 2451 (view B). I love those fun pockets, button/tab detail on the waist, and running stitch for topstitching.
The shape of jacket A from this next pattern is really appealing to me. I also like the bias details along the front center and collar portions. The whole suit is super cute, actually. Maybe I'll completely copy the look only with a different color other then beige.
I'll be buying this next one is for the little shell top. I like the interesting design lines and small neck ruffle. Tops like these are always so versatile in my closet.
I'm hoping to find my sewing mojo soon. There's so many cute garments waiting for me to make them up. If only I could blink my eyes like Barbara Eden from I Dream of Jeannie and have them all materialize on hangers in my closet!
