Hello everyone,                                                                
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.
