A Christmas Outfit for Tamara

I sewed a lot for Christmas and expected to have lots to blog about but I forgot my camera in Ottawa. I had neglected to import most of the photos I took of my proiects. DD is sending it to me.

 In the meantime, I can show you one of the outfits I made for Tamara. I just don't have a picture  of her wearing it.

Here it is.

The outfit consists of a modified version of the  draped cardi, S2603, a sleeveless top to match and a pair of black stretch velvet Yoga pant, Silhouette 3400    .

The fabric for the cardi and the trim on the top is the red version  of the one I used for my Christmas top. The other fabric for the top is a matching jersey which I also used to line the cardi sleeves.

The  inspiration for the trim on the sleeveless top came from the shape of the piece of  fabric I had left over. As simple as that !  I like the way it turned out and so did DD.






For the cardi I cut away about 6" of  the depth of the collar and band/facing from the front pattern piece . The result is a simpler silhouette with much less fabric at center front. I like this version and want to make one for me too.


























Happy New Year Everyone! Above all, I hope it is a peaceful 2013 that is filled with love and  with plenty of time for you to sew!

Beautiful outfit -- so perfect for the holidays. I like the decreased volume in the cardi front -- just the right amount of drape. Happy new year!
