In between activities, I was able to grab some studio time and made this tee
an OOP Vogue pattern by Marcy Tilton (8582). You will notice, I'm sure, that it has some COLOR...it's a very pretty knit from Emma One Sock that had all the right colors in it.
The next project I tackled was a Claude Montana pattern, also OOP, Vogue 1373
I've always loved his designs, and have "collected" a number of them on eBay.
Since these are mostly 1980's patterns, I had to do a lot of work on the shoulders, armscyes and sleeves. They were HUGE, to accommodate the shoulder pads of the times.
I used black piping on the princess seams in the back.
You can see I have a little more work to do on the shoulder area before I try another one...it can be worn open over a tee, as well.
The last item I made is a shirt/tunic in my old reliable B5526...
The fabric is a beautiful drapey rayon with a lovely hand from a NEW SOURCE!
The site is Smuggler's Daughter...I have ordered several pieces of fabric from her and am very pleased with the quality and speed of delivery.
I made a double collar on it, which is kind of hard to see in the photos...
(that large round thing on my bosom must be a water spot on the lens)
This too, I can wear open over a tank or tee.
Sorry for the dot...
During my sewing times I listened to several audio books...I particularly enjoyed
Daughters of Mars by Tom Keneally, the author who wrote "Schindler's List".
I'll probably post again before I leave for Santa Fe...
PS, sorry for the duplicate photos, I can't seem to fix them!
