An Outfit for Tamara

Tamara has been home for the past week and a half.

 She had picked out this outfit when we went to Fabricland the last time I was in Ottawa last spring..I've just gotten round to making it this week while she went camping with friends.

It was a lovely surprise when she came home this evening to find this in my sewing room.



The pattern is New Look 6609


As you can see, I didn't take any artistic licence but made an exact copy of the pattern envelope.
DD loves it! All fabrics are cotton.

A closer look.









The handbag of course was her favorite thing

.


And my sweet daughter in her new ensemble.




Tam goes home Monday and somehow that makes me feel like summer is over!! How did that happen?

I still have one summer garment to make even though I'd rather work on something for fall.It's been cut out since July and I promised myself no UFO's this summer.

Hope you found time to sew this week. More later from

Lucky Tamara. I'd never have picked that pattern but based on your work I can see huge potential for stash busting.

That outfit is stunning! I love the eyelet jacket. Must, must make one for myself. And that handbag to match is so awesome. As always, beautiful work.
