|I found this knit fabric in the bedding section of a thrift store...and it was barely enough but I managed a Renfrew from it ....The match in the picture is from the burn test I did. It's cotton.|
|I'm home alone so no pics with me wearing it....yet|
|This finishing band at the bottom was cut on the cross-grain. IT seems fine now but I don't know how it will hold up over time.|
My next shirt ( I need shirts!) is already cut. It's a New Look Pattern 6150
It's cut out from some blue knit fabric from my stash. Hopefully I can finish this shirt (it's only four pieces) during the week.
February 1st marks the first day of Victoria's Fearless February Challenge. This and Beverly's Scary September Challenge really seem to reinvigorate my sewing.
My challenge choice: jackets and blazers. I am always cold and this is a cold, cold winter and likely a long, cold spring too, so some jackets will do me well. I am planning on doing the Colette Albion Sew-along (but I will be following after the schedule posted as I can never keep up with these things). I'm going to make at least one blazer and a few open, knit jackets. Not too much, not too little.
