It's been almost a month since my last post. Just can't seem to get going with the blog posting. Hope your new year is off to a great start.
On to sewing. Here is the last project for 2011. Top from B5355, the skirt is V8464. The print fabric came from the Chicago Textile Outlet as I helped my daughter use her Groupon, LOL The skirt fabric was leftover from a long time ago. It's funny I can remember this. But we purchased several pieces of textured crepe before it was called Fabric.com. It worked well for jackets, skirts and slacks. I lined the skirt although the pattern doesn't call for it. It's a straight skirt with darts on the front & back. It has a centered back zipper and narrow waistband. I like this skirt and have made it twice so far. The pattern I've had for over a year perhaps. And the top is a loose-fitting pullover and sash with full-length raglan sleeves. The neckline has bias tape that I made from the fabric. I wore this on New Year's Day. It was comfortable to wear but I think I will most likely shorten the sleeves just a bit.
