There are such lovely clothes showing up here. Jen, silk charmeuse, with pleats! I am in awe, having previously failed dismally with pleating that 'ornery fabric - and your blouse looks lovely. I am also really liking Ruthie's jacket, skirt, and cowl neck top - is that half the collection, very smart.
Elizabeth, the first shirt I made using David Page Coffin's book took me 3 weeks - that man is some perfectionist, I felt as if he was looking over my shoulder the whole time and tut-tutting about how wide my flat fell seam was. I guess that is good writing in a way. He certainly inspired plenty of wear and tear on the quick unpick.
I am thinking about the deadline, and what was on my list originally.
BWOF Dec 2008 dress 130, cream and mid brown - done, and I will wear it to a Mocktail party next week with the lace wrap top. This is a left over from the June capsule and does not fit in the plan anyway.
Cardigan style jacket, from cream striped rayon fabric -done, but I have not yet worn it IRL, and don't think I will. Style experiment shall we call it?
Chocolate brown cotton gabardine trousers, Um, no, trousers, what can I say, just not my favourite thing to sew, although I really need trousers
blouse,- no, it is to go with the trousers
several knit tops 2x Vogue 2925 cap sleeve t, 1x Jalie sweetheart citrus mesh top, all into immediate circulation, success
wrap silk jersey dresses - 1.chocolate brown, no
2. purple, yes, but only worn once. Too bright for me for daytime wear
cheating inclusion of knitted eyelet cardigan - my favourite cardigan of all time
so 4 items, I am including the eyelet cardigan, but not the dresses, so no actual outfit. I need to watch Ruthie more closely and sew with a better plan for the eventual wardrobe.
I also have just finished one summer sheath dress, and have only the hem to do on another, this is not sewing trousers for my plan. However, it is 40 degrees Celcius at the moment, and insubstantial clothing is on my mind. Despite this I publicly announce that I will sew work trousers this weekend and make progress on the 6-PSC. Please hold me to it!
