I managed to get a lot of sewing done since my last post but sometimes I just don’t feel like taking pictures or blogging. I haven’t gotten into the new routine that’s required to download pictures from my camera to my new computer or the change in uploading them to Flickr. It’s always easier than I remember, but it always makes me anxious about messing it up. On to what you’re really here for: the pretties!
I said I wasn’t going to sewing another Butterick 5209 but this second one was the first thing I sewed since my first B5209. It was much easier the second time around! I made no changes to my pattern and again, it fits like a dream.
Next up is another McCall’s 6284. The first time around, I used a blue leopard print that I wasn’t quite happy with. I was right, in solid black, this is my new favorite shirt. At the same time, I also made a solid black long sleeve version.
And finally, another Smooth Sailing blouse from http://wearinghistorypatterns.com/ The only changes I made to this version was to add an inch in length at the hem to help keep it tucked in. This is definitely my TnT go-to button front blouse pattern. I LOVE the fabric, having grown up playing mah jong with my family. It’s a bit busy on it’s own, like this, but looks fantastic with my favorite jumper/pinafore.
