Not as many this week.
Monday – Hot Patterns Riviera Summer Breeze
This was a UFO (UnFinished Object) that I finished a couple of weeks ago, and it was the first time to wear it. Yes, you may recognize it as the same material as the other top last week, but definitely a different style. I may yet convert that self-fabric-I-already-converted-to-grosgrain-tie (at left waist), to a grosgrain “belt” with snaps. While it wasn’t egregious, several times over the day it did come untied.
Tuesday – Vogue 1236
I made this last summer out of old fashioned cotton seersucker. It’s one of my favorites for comfort on a hot day! It has a tie of the same fabric but I decided to wear it with a belt this time. Getting better with fitting here; although it’s a loose style, the shoulders aren’t falling off and I’m covered. Every time I wear this a lady at my office threatens to steal it off me.
Wednesday – NA
I had a meeting with a client Wednesday morning, and chickened out of wearing any of my own makes, mostly due to lack of confidence that any of my makes were really the appropriate style. I ended up actually buying a knit jacket that fit in well.
Thursday – HotPatterns 1133 Plain & Simple tee
Same starting pattern as the floral layered top, but made with a neatly textured cheap poly I got to practice working with knit fabrics. I actually made it before the floral top. I wore this half the day, then went home not feeling well.
Friday – NA
Spent the day home being sick, so no me-makes & even if there were I wouldn’t have been up for a pic.
Love it all! I am in the process of looking for a seersucker dress to wear to a July wedding…
Seersucker is good for July!
I really do love them all- you do a great job!
Thank you, Suzette!! I feel like I’m improving with my fitting skills, so that makes me happy! 🙂
