Jalie Jeans!!!! I have made four pairs now and this is by far my favorite pattern for 2009. The jeans pictures below are straight out of the envelope except for a small swayback tuck. Here's the black pair, the griffin pair, first pair, and the star pair (no pictures??).
This BWOF pencil skirt. I wear this all the time.
This Kwik Sew vest. I wear it all the time over my work clothes.
This BWOF dress. I love it. It's the perfect "put it on and know you look great" dress.
This BWOF jacket. I wear this quite often in the spring and fall.
I didn't mess up too many patterns this year. I did make some bad decisions as far as fabric and pattern goes. I like this Simplicity 2922 pattern but this color and fabric just reminds me too much of scrubs or something.
This Burda top was annoying and didn't fit well in the bust. The facing was always coming out and the side view looked a bit like a pregnancy top.
A hat that was just bad all around . . .
. . . and this skirt. I actually like this skirt but the second time I sat down with it, two of the sewn down pleats tore. It happened at school. It wasn't so much that you would notice the tears but I could feel them getting larger. It's too bad though.
I have several things to review and I can't say I haven't had the time. I'm on Winter Break but I go back to school tomorrow. There has just been a lot going on around here.
