Wardrobe Garments Completed
I've been busy! I got the jacket completed and I like it although I'm not completely happy with it. My fabric didn't behave the same as my muslin so the bust point is a bit too high for my tastes. Oh well, it's still better than anything I could buy RTW and I do tend to be too hard on myself and my work. Maybe I can improve the fit with a new bra. I just got an Elan bra pattern and a kit from Sew Sassy. I'm probably not working next week so I'll try to make a bra then.
After getting the jacket done, I needed something to wear with it. Also, I needed to get going on the Wardrobe Contest. So, I made a pair of pants from an OOP Sandra Betzina Pattern, altering the legs for a wider look. The top is so cute! It's from an Ottobre magazine, 2/2007 #12. The pattern as drafted was almost long enough to make a short dress, but as a dress I think it would look great. I may make it later this summer.
I also finished two versions of the Jalie Sweetheart top. I'm too tired right now to share it. It'll give me something to do tomorrow. Good night.
