Two more garments for my handmade wardrobe – both using patterns I have made before, so apologies if this is boring.
First up New Look 6407 Shirt but this time with -collar. Pretty fabric from Rose & Hubble.
Blue Linen Skirt – New Look 6106.
I only had a metre of this blue Irish linen, but the pattern required 1.4 metres, so I cut the skirt a little straighter than the pattern, which I think I prefer as its not quite so A-line now. Facings and pocket linings are in a blue gingham from my small hoard of fabric, together with matching bias binding for the seam treatment.
I managed to find somewhere to balance the camera for a photo using the self timer.
New Look 6407 Shirt – 2nd version
This is the 2nd version of this shirt, I purchased this 100% cotton fabric while on holiday in Cornwall last month. I cut the sides a size bigger for a more relaxed shirt, not quite so fitted as the vintage sheet version.
New Look Top 6356 – View D
Another outing for my vintage sheet………. I really enjoyed making this it was so easy and the instructions very clear.
I am even quite pleased with the zip, just needs a hook and eye.
I also managed to cut out two skirts and make a phone case, so quite a productive Easter break!
Today has been a lovely day not only was the sun shining but I have finished my first ever shirt!!
New Look 6407 View E. The only alteration made to the pattern was to shorten the length. It is a little snug across the chest, but a wearable muslin, made from a sheet from a charity shop.
