work wardrobe

Since I've done a few separate pieces I thought you might be interested in how I put these pieces together for work. There's nothing too flash about how I style my wardrobe but each piece fits well. The only piece I didn't make was the beige skirt. I bought it because I loved the style and fabric.

Check challenge

I decided to have a go at M5466.










The check is large and navy blue, so I've used a dark blue bias on the sleeve hem. 
The sleeve doubles on itself so I've used the bias tape for a smoother hem.






This shows how I lowered the neckline by using the facing, a blue pen and a french curve, to help line up the neckline better.


It's now 7.30pm and I'm giving up for tonight - I think.

Housework weekend

I had a quick look at the calendar ahead and in the coming weeks there are a few pre-Christmas functions happening. Last night I decided to clean the kitchen while I pondered what to sew next, time permitting. 
Today I cleaned the front driveway, again, trying to decide on what to sew next.
Now I'm fixing clothes that need mending, but I just bought fabric when all I needed was a replacement zipper.
The red fabric ($5/m) is a linen cotton mix that is medium weight, but can be shaped easily. I think this will eventually become a pencil skirt with pockets.
The tea cup panel fabric ($2/panel) is a light weight cotton and I love the print. Now this could become anything from an sundress or skirt. 


Right now I still have 'no idea'.
