Coloured Cocktail (remember no comments here)

Been procrastinating about doing  SWAP this year,  it has taken me a while to get a clear concept together.    Generally, I want to create a colourful collection of smart casual clothes out of  some of those fabric that we (I) 'save'.  These for me are a few silks.  I want  some nice shirts to use as  beach cover ups,  to take me to a casual dinner and to go over the shells.   The bottoms are set to become shorter,   (capri  or skirts)  so I can paddle in the ocean.   All is topped off by the Linking piece the Navy Silk Jacket.

I going to change some of the patterns in my SWAP.   The Hot Pattern 'Kiss Me Cost'  has princess seams running from the shoulder,  I want the other garments to reflect this look.  So I have decided to use a Burda shell and shirt pattern that have this construction technique.   This is the dress pattern (Burda  7502) selected because of the princess seams.... could use it for  a top also. 

The first capsule that I am sewing will be more weekend,  I will be making pants and  princess seam dress from a stretch  cream cotton,  I am thinking about a pink shell with a red silk shirt ???   Going to cut out pants and dress now!

Just completed my dress,  using the above Burda pattern 7502.  I was able to squeeze out this dress and a pair of slim pants from a piece of stretch cotton. 



The pants are being used by Sneaky Snazz at the moment....please go and play with the dog!
