Reviews: Mother Daughter Colorful Matching Tunics and the Janome Mod 100

School started this week so this past weekend I thought it would be great to take my daughter out for some Mother/Daughter bonding. A friend of mine was putting on a fashion show so I immediately thought that would be the perfect event for us. I mean we both love fashion and have our own distinct styles. To sweeten the deal we thought it would be cute to dress alike for the event. So with a full work week and very limited time I pulled out 2 patterns--- New Look 0558 for my daughter and Simplicity 0347 for myself. The designs were pretty straight forward and I allowed my multicolor jersey fabric to do all of the "talking". I bought a ton of this fabric at Fine Fabrics in Atlanta a couple of years back for a project and am just now using it. It's bright and lively but I like that.

I whipped these 2 tops together SO fast! I can thank my new and trust Janome Mod 100 for her help! I'm delighted to partner with Janome in getting the word out about how great this machine is! This machine is awesome and "purred like a kitten" so to speak with use. It's fast stitching and ease of use helped make these 2 tops come together fast! Plus it's new cool design and coloration was just as cool as the fabric I was sewing! I really love this machine! It's reliable yet fun and stylish!

I'd been wanting to make Simplicity 0347 for quite sometime.  It's a lovely top and I love the dolman sleeves and plunging neckline. Due to the vivid color I styled the outfit simply. At the last minute I couldn't track down my favorite geometrical shaped gray earring (I was distraught over this ya'll) so I settled for some black hanging loops and decided not to wear a necklace. If I'd been thinking straight I would have made this top just a bit longer to transform it into a dress to wear with strappy black heels. Since I didn't I paired with black legging and strapped platforms.

I changed up NewLook 0058 to make it into a short dress/long tunic so my daughter would have some versatility in wearing it. Again, due to the busy print I decided against adding any other details to it. Although a cute hanging beaded black necklace would've been really cute. Either way she loved it and she got lots of compliments. Here she is modeling it.....
