I tried to model these but had no one to take the pictures so all I have to show for it are lots of blurry photos of my outstretched arm, the corner of my head, my dresser and dirty laundry heap in the background. Good stuff like that. So here they lie…
New Look 6871 made with some glittery plaid from Vogue fabrics. I like it. Good pattern. Needed to make a smaller size but still definitely a go-to shirt. Sometimes the bias tape finished armholes flip out though. Thinking I need some tacking stitches.
New Look 6410 The blue linen skirt I was talking about a while back. Turned out real cute but reaaaaal boring. So I jazzed it up with a bleach pen thanks to Amy’s super clever Bend the Rules with Fabric for instruction and inspiration.
Simplicity 2599 made with a super soft smooth cotton from Vogue fabrics. Again, I like it. Again, too big. and maybe this print isn’t working so great with the ruffles. I’m not sure. I really love the print. And again, inspired by Amy. I’d like to make this shirt again in a liberty print for Fall. Be so cute under a cardigan! And then no one would see any poorly finished armholes.
