A Casual Outfit for Tamara

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I've been trying to figure out why people have stopped commenting on my Sew Passionista by Diana blog. I reset a few things and have signed up to follow this blog to see if it appears in my Reading list.Could you please leave me a comment if this is appearing on your reading list.

 I just got back from Ottawa so you know  I made something for DD to take to her!

 Tamara recently told me she has plenty of work clothes but not enough casual stuff. I think the outfit I made for her fits the bill. Here it is.

For the jean jacket I used my favorite OOP Burda pattern  (8905) which I've made many times before. If you have this pattern you should try it.It's a real gem.

For the skirt I used another favorite pattern, New Look 6300also OOP

The fabric is a stretch cotton denim which is a nice chambray colour .For top stitching, I used Gutterman Heavy Duty Polyester thread in colour 865 and I loved the effect.

Now about this shirt!

I know! Wow! Really?

In the 80's I made DD a purple shirt with parrots on it that she wore till the millennium! I finally had to insist it had to go.

 I found this cotton  at Fabricville a few years ago and planned to make her a new parrot shirt as a joke. It was quick to make and brought  a smile to Tamara's face. She said however that she wouldn't wear it with the suit! I can't imagine why!!!

I used the print for the facings etc. because this is suppose to be a fun, casual Friday kind of outfit.

I forgot to take a photo of  DD wearing her new outfit so I'll leave you with a buttoned up view of it..

I hope you found time to sew this weekend!

Great outfit. I sure you DD looks great in it. That's such a fun shirt; I'd wear it with the suit. ;-)
