MMM Day 3

For Day 3, I chose this trio: jeans, white shirt, and patterned pull-over.


The pattern is Hearts A Flutter from Cutting Line Design. It is longer in the back than in the front with deep slits at the hip. I vaguely remember enjoying the construction process, but it's been quite a while. I added navy piping to highlight the interesting lines of this pattern. I should make this again. It's such a good pattern!

I love the cotton fabric and would buy a bolt of it if I could. Alas, I purchased this from the now-defunct Silk Road fabric shop in Austin, TX. They had such delicious fabrics. This one seems to have a positive and negative side and I believe it is from India.


The jeans are made from a medium weight dark denim. I used an OOP pattern from Sandra Betzina for Vogue (#7179). Several years ago I had the honor of taking a three-day class from the one, the only, fabulous Sandra Betzina. She was a delightful person, and sounded just the way I remembered her from Sew Perfect on TV.  She fitted these princess-seamed pants to me.


This is a TNT pattern for me - the top portion of the Mix It pattern from the Sewing Workshop. I've made it so many times that I've lost count. It is just a great top for hot weather and a perfect under layer when it's not so hot. I used a cotton pique for it.


  1. Wow!
    I am so impressed. Loved everything you have posted so far and it's only the 4th of May.
    I'm in the process of making a MeMade Travel wardrobe for our trip to Scotland next month. I just have to finish my Zona Jacket, make four more pants (Helix) and two more shirts. Fingers crossed I'll get it all done before we leave.
    Hope all is well.
