I've had a few things,all navy, made for a while now but getting pictures taken has become a chore to me ! Finally, here they are :
I used V8793 minus the collar. The print is a textured double knit and the sleeves are scuba knit, both from Fabricville. Adding pockets made it a bit more interesting IMO.
A scuba knit pencil skirt made using my UFO skirt pattern Mc5590 (OOP). The navy scuba knit pant was from last summer.
A cream/navy cardi ( based on View B of M6844 ) The fabric is a cotton knit from my stash.
The front drape was achieved by angling out the front from just below the bust ,then joining it to the side of the front piece in a curved line ,using my French curve.
And finally a raw silk jacket. This is a rough silk that looks very rustic ( it actually reminds me of hop sack) and was a lot of fun to sew up but is hardly a luxe piece I used V8605 for a starting point but my jacket is far from the original style of this pattern.
For this piece,I was influenced by the many collarless and minimalist coats I've seen at various sites such as Farfetch.com and Nordstrom.
Style details include Hong Kong finishing on the seams (I should have lined it ) and linen facings.
A jewel neckline
Roll back cuffs sleeves for a casual feel..The fabric was really too thick for a wide hem to fold back and I may decide to take out the Hong Kong finish at the hem.
I so love this one! I know I say that a lot where jackets are concerned, but I do .Look how nice it looks with white skinny jeans!
...and a pencil skirt
....and my wide legged linen pants
...and a dress
and many more items in my closet but you don't need any more pics, I'm sure.
I'm now working on beige and white pieces but I need to hem four layers of chiffon/charmeuse,etc on Jessica's prom dress and I'm dreading it with all my heart. Please wish me luck! No ,I didn't make the dress.
I do hope you 've had time to sew all kinds of fun things to wear in the warmer weather to come.
