2019 Recap

Hard to believe that the first month of 2020 already flew by. I didn't have any time to sew this year yet, but decided to do a recap of last year since most of my makes went undocumented on the blog. 

Looking back at my 2019 projects, it was actually a productive sewing year. These are most, but not all my sewing makes from last year.

M7543 Quick Off Shoulder Top

It's been a productive few months when it comes to handmade garments, but as usual I'm behind on taking photos and posting. This McCalls 7543 top was on my to make list for a while and I wore it out minutes after it left my sewing machine. McCalls 7543 off shoulder top with sleeve ties by handmadepetite

Side By Side Shawl


I don't wear shawls. I don't wear neon colors unless I'm cycling outside and trying to avoid getting hit by a car. So why in the world would I knit a lime green shawl?! Knit shawl using Vera Valimeki Sidebyside pattern

M7591 Summer Cotton Jersey Dress and Costa Maya Knit Flyaway Cardigan

Sewing McCalls M7591 pattern for summer jersey knit dress
This is going to be a two-part post starting with the dress. This is McCall's 7591 pattern view C. It's a pullover dress with elastic waist for stretch knits and looks like it can be dressed up or down depending on the fabric and accessories. When the pattern first came out, what drew me to it was the keyhole neck detail.

Simplicity 2054 Sweatshirt Dress

Handmade sweatshirt dress using Simplicity 2054 sewing pattern
I actually made this sweatshirt dress last year and took a few pictures, but didn't get around to posting it. I forgot about it until last month since it's too warm to wear in Texas most of the year, but wanted to write my review in case someone is still thinking of making up this pattern.
