So as many of you know a few weeks ago I posted a storyboard for my nautical wardrobe, NOW! I know it is almost fall and I had no business doing a nautical wardrobe..hello! but I needed it to get it out of my system since I have been wanting to do it for a long time.
Well, I kind of feel the same way Eric B feels about Wardrobe sewing..lol, I get board too! I think what I find to be fun about sewing for me is that I do whatever I feel like it and I change my mind so much that then I dont even want to sew. I did manage to get a few pieces done "kinda in the nautical thing" but I eventually drifted off..lol
Here is what I spent my weekend doing, first up is something that always gets me about patterns when it comes to knits: click to enlarge
Vogue Top: 8477
Pattern: Vogue 8477 and Butterick 5249
The Vogue top was easy as pie, the only thing I changed was the way they have you attach the neck band. Other then that the pattern was pretty easy and the top is cute. I used a knit that did not have very much stretch in it so next time (if there is one) I will use a stretchier fabric.
The butterick skirt is so cute! I am going to do the other versions too. The pattern was a breeze any beginner would do just fine with this pattern. I really like it.
Pattern: New Look 6823 "My Oprah Dress" can you guess why?? lol
This is the easiest dress pattern I have done all year, I mean really I cut and stitched the whole thin gin under 90 min. It was so easy!!! One thing, if I had used a very stretchy knit I would have omitted the darts in the back but because my knit had very little stretch I kept it.
This is a super easy dress and it's cute, I wanted to use this fabric for a simple dress since I love the "O" and it reminds me of Oprah...lol
Pattern: M4924 View B Skirt and Self drafted knit black top
Love this skirt!!!!, again super easy and the only tricky part is matching that darn plaid!! oh my!
I omitted the vents in the back and only did the two in the front.
Pattern: Vogue 8451 and Self drafted drawstring pants
I love this knit top, I have made it twice before...lol and the drawstring pants are so easy to do and I wanted a red pair so there you go.
Finally!!!! you guys wanted to see me "wearing" the M5705 so here it is :)
