It's been a while, I know. I seem to say "a lot has been going on" often: it's true. I'm taking it one day at a time and trying to stay positive. Gotta think happy thoughts.
I finished the jacket and blouse over a week ago and took some pictures this morning. Temperatures have fallen quickly here and I wore them both to work today. The shirt fits very nicely and I can see making a couple more in the future. Y'all know I love me some Jalie 2559, so it was a breeze to sew this jacket for the fourth time. I heart TNT patterns, but I want to try other jacket patterns since there are so many different styles available.
On with the show-n-tell.
New Look 6407 paired with Kwik Sew 2960 (not yet blogged)
paired with in-progress McCall's 5523
The jacket color reminds me of strained peas - not really a look I was going for. It's rather bright for fall, but I like it so who cares? =)
I likely will not wear the jacket and skirt together. Lil too much green, knamean?
These four garments (including the dark grey pants I'm wearing) are part of my fall mini wardrobe plan. The inspiration was this floral knit print I picked up from...um...I don't remember.
When I started digging around my stash, I found quite a few fabrics that coordinated with this print.
top to bottom: sweater knit, rayon knit, striped cotton shirting,
solid cotton shirting, wool sweater knit, wool twill
The patterns for these fabrics are yet to be finalized. What I wanted to sew was quickly squashed when I realized I didn't have enough fabric. Oops!
I haven't sewn much of anything in the last couple of weeks. I hope to get some sewing done this weekend. Until next time, peace.
