Well, I haven’t managed to work on my capsule wardrobe… not specifically anyway! But, I’m making great strides in the skirt department! I’ve almost completed seven circle skirts, 3/4 circle skirts and one 8 gore skirt. They are all different lengths and colors. All will have elastic waistbands. I’m also getting ready to start some pencil skirts. Maybe I’ll become the “Skirt Lady”, I’m pretty pleased with these….. photos to follow the new batch!
Making progress on this dress! Getting ready to out the zipper in… wish me luck, I’ve been fighting with my sewing machines all day….
Here’s the top inspired by Butterick 6620, over added a couple of darts to give it some shape. Hemmed the bottom and sleeves. It will be perfect to throw on with a pair of cigarette pants to run to the fabric store!
I’m self drafting this dress based off of a blouse pattern that I don’t have. It’s looking pretty good. I’ve made several patterns including a short sleeve version. This one will have 3/4 length sleeves and a full circle skirt.
I’ve also cut out a 3/4 circle skirts out of a red linen. I’m pretty sure I have enough to make the short sleeve shirt to go with it.
