Here are some of my end of semester projects from before the break.
I had to make two men's shirts for my sewing class. I made this plaid version and a basic men's white dress shirt version. I didn't get the buttons or button holes in as the night I finished these my machine's tension went out of order. I did get extra credit for the plaid yoke and shirt cuffs on the bias though, so I was happy with that.
I love the plaid. It was really kind of fun to sew these! Even if I can't wear them! I do wish I would have had the foresight to put the pleat in the center of the plaid, but overall I love the way this turned out!
I kind of love some of the details like the straight square shoulders, and the flat fell seams on the inside. Who knew making a men's dress shirt could be so much fun! Just a fun sew!
A (somewhat wrinkled) tailored jacket made of muslin for pattern drafting class.
I made this hunter green wool crepe skirt for Christmas. I love wool crepe! So wonderful to work with! I also think the blouse above will go great with the hunter green, and I am really excited as I was looking for colors to wear with this skirt!
While I like the hook and eye closure, I think next I will try another petersham ribbon waistband.
This is another green skirt I made a while ago that I used petersham on the waistband for. It worked like a charm, and I can't wait to try it again sometime.
Have a great week!
