Nothing new here –

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.PENTAX DIGITAL CAMERA

 

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.

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!
