Vogue 8774 again....done.... and a TNT knit

March has been a crazy month already.  I finally finished my second pair of Vogue 8774.  Corduroy again.  Green.  My green jeans.  lol.  This corduroy has more stretch than the chocolate did, even though the fiber content claims to be the same.  So this pair has more of a saggy butt by end of day, but they are so comfortable, I can live with it.

Have you ever visited Off the Cuff?  She does some amazing work.  She recently posted a tutorial, the split cowl collar.  It is awesome and simple.  I added the collar to my TNT knit top pattern.  The top is based on a a morph of many patterns fitted to my KG2.  The collar really adds some style to a simple T shirt.  She has 3 variations in her tutorial.  I want to try them all.

Here is the collar 'unfolded'

And folded. 

Here is part of what has been keeping me so busy.  He is 5 months old today.  Being a grandma is awesome.

Stay Happy
Keep Sewing
and if you can't sew,
have fun, doing whatever it is you can do.


  1. What a sweet baby, no wonder very little sewing!

  2. Your jeans fit great! I'm going to go check out the T shirt tutorial. I like what you did with yours.
