I hope you enjoyed my foray into menswear, because now it’s time to focus back on me. Me! Me! Me! (Hey…I tried to focus elsewear…)
While I was working on my doodle shirt/The Photographer’s muslin, I was also working on a dress for moi. I picked up some lightweight fabric at Mood with a preppy-like pattern on it.
I also had a McCalls 6167 calling my name.
I was thinking shirtdress (rather than just long shirt). And the kicker – I saw this. Shirtdress with rolled up sleeves, great patterned fabric, long…love it!
So I got right down to it. Tried some new fitting techniques. Cut out my fabric. Started sewing it together. Then realized I hadn’t accounted for all of the changes. So instead of fixing it right away, I let it sit. And sit. And then I made a bag for my mom. Then started a skirt. Then made a male muslin. Then finally decided to get back down to it.
So lets take a look:
It’s not much to look at now, but I think a good thing is coming…just in time for spring! Keep an eye out for more!
