Here's one of my versions. I actually finished this months ago, but figured why not blog about it now?
One thing that makes this pattern so great is it's timeless style: the gathered bust, sweet puffed sleeves, the flattering waistband and the gathered skirt.
I used black dotted swiss from Osgood's (still haven't met any polka dots I didn't like). The pattern is super easy and except for the tedious task of gathering small areas, I blasted through the blouse in an afternoon and loved every minute of it. I think this was my first time inserting a side zipper, and was a breeze.
Another closet staple has become my version of McCalls 6844. I've made 3 cardigans and aint stopping there!
This little number is another last-winter-make but it seemed ok to blog now. This pattern works up so fast and is another easy peasy construction. I used some really soft knit fabric with an Aztec-y pattern from Joann's.
Let's hear it for camera self timer!
Next I'm tackling some pants! And the stupid fly part!
