Still stash bustin' with Simplicity 2064

I am still stash busting over here and my latest stash busting bff is Simplicity 2064.  It was a Little Lisette pattern that is sadly discontinued.  Why oh why do the big four pattern companies phase patterns out so quickly?  I mean I've only had this one sitting in my pattern stash for about 3 years (that's a spring chicken pattern to me) before I made it!  So I really wish they would bring back some of the Lisette patterns and especially the Built by Wendy patterns....please,please bring those back!  
 My hope with this pattern was to gobble up a few pieces of fabric that weren't quite big enough for dresses or tops.  The first skirt is made from a Heather Ross design for Hancock Fabrics.  Its from her Crafty Chloe series.  I've said it here before, I think this book series and pattern series is adorable and so does my 5 year old who is kind of hard to impress with fabric.
 This pink skirt is made up in size 5 and is just perfect the denim one below is a size 6 and a bit to big and long for her just yet.  These will be perfect to wear over leggings in cool weather.
 This girl's so full of antics these days...they include laughing loudly, phpptttt noises, making up jokes that she believes are hi-larious, pouncing on you and rarely smiling for pictures instead she sticks that tongue out as far as possible!  I'm so glad she is who she is- my equal parts silly and tenderhearted sweetie!


  1. I'm loving your stash-bustin sewing. So much fun. The two skirts are so cute. I can tell she likes them. Good job my sewist daughter. Mom

  2. Thanks Mom! She is such a character these days!! Love to you! E

  3. Brilliant stashbusting, and you are right, 3 years old is a mere youngster in the pattern world!

    1. Thank you Lucy! Its a cute pattern and I'm glad that someone else agrees with me that 3 yrs is like a mere babe pattern :)
