So this post will cover my last four sewing projects. Three blouses and a pair of pants.
The inspiration for the first blouse was these mixed print blouses.
After all the work on the previous blouse, I was looking for something simple. Butterick 6417 looked easy enough.
Still on a stripe kick, the next project was a pair of pants Burda 6811 .
They have a side panel and inseam pockets. I cut the side panels with the stripes going horizontally. I hemmed the pants and created vents on the panel seams just for fun. No issues with these pants. Fabric is a navy poly rayon blend with white shadow stripes from JoAnn’s.
The final garment is a blouse made out of the Nicole Miller novelty print “Cosmetics” from JoAnn’s Fabrics It was on sale and I liked the print.
But the fabric is poly lycra. I try not to be a complete natural fabric snob, and buy and sew poly fabrics every once in a while. Still no love. This fabric was easy to sew, but wrinkles a lot (I know...what?) and gets static cling except in high humidity conditions. The pattern is Vogue 7906 from 2004, I made view B with the high collar and bell sleeves.
It looks great and I get nice comments when I wear it. ....On rainy days.
Time to put away all my wooly fabrics, bring out the linens and cottons and start some warm weather sewing.
