Sometimes when I am in the middle of a complicated project, I like to take a break and whip up something quick.
Simplicity 3536. It's so OOP that it isn't even on Simplicity's website anymore. This was actually one of the first patterns that I bought when I was coming back to fashion sewing. I'm not sure why it took me so long to make it up, but I sure am glad I finally did. I think this red stretch velvet (from Joann) is perfect for the holidays!
The holidays are crazy, so I probably won't get a chance to post again until they have passed, but I hope that your holiday season is enjoyable and that you have plenty of stitching time!
