lucky lucilles sew for victory 2014

Its time again for Lucky Lucille's Sew For Victory sew-along. I love sharing my projects and seeing what others come up with too. I always seem to run late on sew-alongs but this time, I'm picking something really simple.

My wardrobe is in desperate need of more jeans. With mom living in the country now and a garden to plant in a few months, I must have jeans and overalls for working outdoors and fishing. Last year I sewed a pair of overalls and jeans from the Wearing History pattern and I love them so much, I think I'll crank out a few more pairs. I have always wanted to buy some of those fab repro jeans but for the cost of one, I can make 2 or 3 pairs myself!

To complete my jeans outfit, I'm sewing Mrs Depew's 1940s wrap blouse. I sewed two of these for Daffny from A Vintage Nerd a few years ago- one in cotton and one in a stretchy tee shirt material.

This one so cute and quick to put together and I love anything with a sweetheart neckline. I can pair these blouses with my jeans, overalls or a skirt this summer. I'm undecided on fabric for this one. I really loved the way Daffny's tee shirt blouse turned out so I may sew one or two of those.
