Here are the promised pictures of recent sewing projects:
Autumn plaid blouse. Made from a reproduction vintage cotton, that has a lovely weight to it. Grey/black/cream/brown plaid that hopefully will go with everything.
White blouse. The first thing I made on the new machine. Shown here with my fantastic shoes and purple handbag. (Vanity pics of shoes and handbag because my mom asked to see both.)
Rainy day dress!! In cotton that looks like PNW drizzle to me. Ribbon detail on neckline. Dress is fairly structured, fully lined and was definitely harder to make than I thought.
Up close of the ribbon detail and the fabric. It’s “homespun” quilting cotton, made as reproduction fabric from 100 years ago or so. Lovely uneven grey stripes. The ribbon is just pleated grey grosgrain ribbon.
I have one more dress to make for Fall/Winter (f only I can find the fabric) and one more blouse (if only I can find a pattern). And more pictures coming soon of things I made for someone other than me.
