I made another pair of Style Arc Linda Pants in a wonderful rayon/cotton/poly/lycra from Marcy Tilton. This is the fabric I'd most like to be wearing on a 13 1/2 -hour flight...
It impressed me so much, I ordered more to make a jacket (not to be worn together) from my TNT, CLD Anything But Ordinary.
I changed it to a zipper front, added pockets, and lined it with a wonderful pleated poly taffeta from my "neighborhood" store (Betty's). I also used the taffeta to trim the pockets, sleeves, and the collar. I put 8 pockets inside, one of my favorite things to do with a jacket for traveling.
Next, I made Style Arc Adele Tunic in a rayon/lycra knit from Emma One Sock. It fit perfectly out of the envelope, as has been my experience with all the SA patterns I've used.
I made a separate cowl to wear when I need more coverage. I made the neckband in a contrasting ponte knit.
And lastly (although I don't think I'm finished yet!) I made Vogue 8582 out of another rayon/lycra knit from Emma One Sock.
I made the longer length, long-sleeved version and used some fun black trim
from Marcy Tilton for the neckband.
I found this in my closet...many sewists will recognize this 1980's Carol Horn for Vogue
1907, long OOP.
I have one more tank to make, and I hope to photograph the whole wardrobe
before I leave...such gratification!
A WORD TO THE WISE: My 6-month-old Bernina 430 started wailing like a banshee during my 3rd project; it's still under warranty, and probably is reacting to all the fuzz, glitter, fur, etc. I've subjected it to in the last 3 months...:D. I had always planned to take my SM and my serger in for spa treatments while I am gone...just not until I FINISHED my wardrobe! My humble $350 Brother was waiting in the wings, and stepped up to the plate like a trooper. Moral: always have a backup sm if you HAVE to finish something NOW!!!!
