Simplicity 8654 Pattern Review

This year I added to my Sew Your Stash goals to include using more of the 300+ patterns in my sewing collection.  I love sharing step-by-step tutorials so you all can sew the pattern along with me, but sometimes I can’t (or don’t want to) film the process.  Simplicity 8654 is one of those cases.  It was a project I wanted to whip up without having to worry about camera angles and all of that.

I made the pleated shorts option using the floral viscose from the October Sew Hayley Jane box.  You can check out that unboxing HERE!

I wanted to share the shorts after they were completed, so I thought it would be fun to try something new…a pattern review.  It’s my first pattern review so I covered the basics such as how easy/difficult the instructions were to follow, adjustments I made, final fit, changes I would make for next time, and more.

(BTW I apologize for the poor photo quality…I had my camera on the wrong settings).

Anyway, check out my full pattern review with additional photos HERE!

I would love to know if you have tried Simplicity 8654 and your thoughts on the pattern.  Also did you like this kind of video, or would you prefer a DIY Inspiration style video for non tutorial videos??

Make sure to check back on Wednesday for a tutorial on the skinny hair scarf I made to match my shorts.  Until then, Happy Sewing!
