#Decemberbdaysew: Happy Birthday To Me...

...thank God for another year! I've always enjoyed having my birthday just 7 days before Christmas., It has been a very happy birthday indeed, especially since I was able to complete my new top last night.  It always feels good to wear something new on ones birthday.  I went with New Look 6415 again since I had already used the pattern twice before (here and here). 
I chose to work with stretch panne velour again in a different color-way. I went with View C but added long sleeves that I modified just a bit by cutting the bottom of the sleeve in a slight bell shape.

The panne velour provided just the right amount of warmth for this chilly day paired with my Vogue 8859 pants made several months ago.  Now it's time to clean the sewing room again.  I've got far too many loose pattern pieces floating around in here.

What's going on in your sewing world???

  1. Happy Birthday! I remembered because it's my son Patrick's birthday, too. I love your new top, and I love the tree in your background. It's a perfect accent. I hope you're having a wonderful birthday.

  4. Happy Birthday to you Linda. This top looks very nice mafe in this shade of yellow. Unlike you I don't like being born one week before xmas as its never properly celebrated. There are many orphan pattern pieces around here too.
