Blouse · Shirts · Skirt

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.

Red Spot Skirt – New Look 6106

I really fancied a skirt with pockets, and New Look 6106  seemed to fit the bill, although I was worried it might be a bit too A-line.

I am really drawn to fabric with spots lately

with Russian doll shirt, I bought these fabrics at the same time as part of my grand plan for a new co-ordinating wardrobe.

Also made  the same skirt in a polycotton from my stash.

 Easy to sew and a good staple for the wardrobe.
