One Pattern, Three Looks: New Look 6644

Happy Monday, folks! Did you do any sewing this weekend? I haven’t so far, but today after the Bronco game I hope to … or during the game if they start losing really bad, hahaha.

Last week I got on a roll with one knit top pattern and made three different versions. It’s one of the Fall New Look releases, 6644, and I liked it for the pants initially, but once I looked at the top, I was even more excited about that!

I have three versions to show you, so let’s get started.

I made New Look 6644 three different times! Each look is so different and I know I’ll be using this basic knit top pattern a lot in the future. || PIn Cut Sew Studio #newlookpatterns #sewingpattern #diyfashion #sewingclothes

The first version was intended to be a muslin and thus, is made from a thrifted jersey sheet. Once I knew I liked the pattern, I went ahead and finished this top as a pajama shirt. Of course, I needed some shorts to go with it, so I pulled out McCall's 7610 and whipped up a pair with the remaining fabric. It was my first time using this pattern for shorts and I really like it!

The second version and the one I love the most is from a rayon baby rib knit I got on my last trip to Colorado. It's a beautiful deep sea green color and so soft. There wasn't quite enough of it to make a cardigan, which was my original intention, so this pattern was the perfect solution. It's absolutely perfect to throw over pretty much any outfit and it's a perfect transitional piece for Fall. I've already worn it quite a bit this week and I'm sad when it's in the wash. (My shoes below are a pair I thrifted and they were like new! They’re Puma, you can find them here in several colors, and SO SO bendy and comfy). Also, the jeans are from Target, find similar here.

I was so excited about this pattern, I went ahead and pulled a few other fabrics to see if I could squeeze out one or two more. This pattern doesn't take very much fabric, so it's perfect for the smaller knit pieces in my drawer just waiting for the right project to come along.

I had thrifted this striped double knit several months ago. For this version I got fancy and used some stretch lace to make a small front pocket and sleeve bands. I cropped the sleeves on this one and also two inches off the bottom before adding the band. I love this one too! It's perfect over my plainer dresses. I also think it would be cute over a solid white button down. (My booties are also thrifted, but they are Nine West.)

I'm not done with this pattern by a long shot. I didn't even put it back in the envelope when I worked on something else this week. I've pulled a pretty green rayon sweater knit out of the drawer and am crossing my fingers that I'll have enough for a fourth version.

I will also be making those pants at some point!

What is your favorite tried and true pattern? Also, are you creeped out by thrifted shoes?? Haha!!

Cheers!

Because loungewear should be pretty

I sewed a robe!! It's soooo pretty. I had a robe already. But it was a shade of gray that just looked terrible on me! So I had a pattern and ordered some knits from Girl Charlee just specifically to make a robe! 

I used McCall's 7516 and it went together pretty easily, The front and hood are one pattern piece, so the construction is different than anything I've made before, but worked great. 

I truly believe that women should feel pretty is everything we wear and that includes loungewear and p.j.'s! If you have to wear them, they might as well be cute. I have made some other loungewear patterns, but the one that I'm most happy to recommend is this chick boxer pattern by EvielaLuveDIY on Etsy.  I made three pair in one day and wear them all the time. Check out her shop because she has such beautiful patterns and kits! 

I've really been having to carve out time for personal sewing lately. I have several knits I'd like to sew up before we move in a couple months, but the to-do list is also starting to compound, so I'm trying to carve out and hour here and there to whip through some projects. It's a good thing I'm fast!
