More Necessary Pieces

I hate to bore you but here are the last two pieces on this theme.

These capris are once again V7608 by Sandra Betzina.

They are part of this outfit.

I'm very happy with the way they fit and how they look with the jacket. (Whoops! I thought I had a photo but I don't!)

The next item is a top made as a muslin to test  Simplicity2234 . I want to make the dress on the model.

I wasn't too sure about this one until I wore it to a community function and got compliments. After all, it may look like a maternity top but I'm far beyond that age so I'll just accept the "It's cute" verdict.

The fabric is an embroidered cotton voile from my stash.

Some detail shots.

I do plan on making the dress soon using a lovely light polyester georgette type fabric that's been in my stash for at least six years.

First though, I want to finish my rain jacket ( here's a peek). I still have a few styling details to finish on it.

Then, I've started to make a couple of purple items to match a bracelet my husband gave me for our anniversary.I;ll share those with you next time.

Happy Sewing to all from

Okay that does not look like a maternity top on you at all! And these are pretty awesome basics...can't wait to see the dress!

I agree with Carolyn. A very cute unmaternity, summery top!

I'm glad that does not look like a maternity dress, because I have that pattern and have just now decided that I must make it. Thanks for reviewing it!

You look great in white. You look very summery.

Wonderful top! The initials on the back pants pockets did catch my attention - cute!

Pants may not come off in a photograph as exquisite garments, but they are essential. Your white top is so pretty. It's not as full as some baby-dolls, and you definitely do not look preggie! Just cute!

Hi Diana you asked me about the sheath dress I made - here are the details.

By the way, I don't think that it looks like a maternity dress either.
