Now that I’m back in my sewing class every day, there has been a lot less knitting. I was working on finnishing my last Jaywalker sock (got passed the heel and have only a few inches to go), but then it was time for me to sew. I’ve turned to a new set of patterns, Built by You from Simplicity.

Built by Wendy, a hip New York designer has this line fo patterns with Simplicity. They are amazing, I’m working on this very cute top and my next one will be a tunic from two new patterns she released. They are simple, quick and cute. Plus she has a sewing book that comes with three patterns! I’ve heard it’s more for beginner sewers, but I really want to take a look at it. You never know, it may be helpful, even just as an inspriation.

She had a sewing contest back in October where people submitted what they’ve made with her patterns. Everyone has such different and creative ideas, even the same pattern can be different! From simple things as the type of fabric and the length, to toallay changing it (like a girl that turned a cropped coat pattern into a cape!).

Wow, I really sound like a rep. for Built by Wendy, but I do truly love her patterns. Once I have made most of them, I will have this great pattern collection so I can make myself wonderful clothing. I can’t wait to see my closet after this!!!

P.S. I’ll post pictures of my finnished Jaywalkers asap, I’m so close to being done!
