I know, I know - the title is a bit out there, but that's how I'm feeling with my latest 2 FOs. Both of these are part of the PR Wardrobe Contest. This puts me in a comfortable position to actually finish. I have only one top to make, a pair of pants, and a skirt to finish (which is almost completed already).
First off - the shirt is the first attempt at the Simplicity 2594 top. After succeeding with the green stretch fabric, I felt confident enough to complete this version. Still loving the fabric and texture.
I made the skirt using the new Vogue 8603 pattern. I really love the side ruching and back panel. It makes me feel all Betty Boop. Unfortunately I chose a fabric that really likes to unravel. Even after serging the sides,it is still unraveling inside, here and there. Regardless, I love the look and since the skirt only took an evening to make, I don't mind whipping this one up again.
Next up - I'm finishing my Cynthia Rowley skirt pattern - Simplicity 2512
I have messed up at every stage of this one, even though it isn't a complicated skirt. This includes sewing the pockets to the outsize and sewing the top of the skirt as the bottom, etc. Either way, I'm making it work (I love you Tim Gunn) and I am still happy with my progress. Speaking of progress....I was able to make really fast progress on the binding with the following purchase:
Now, I know many people find this to be useless, but I really like it. I HATE making bias binding tape and do not find the store bought variety attractive. This is the perfect marriage for the lazy and polished project seekers....meaning me.
