I have told you that I am planning to make a skirt and a shirt. Well, I thought you might like to see the pattern that I am using.
The skirt: Burda 7861 (I unsuccessfully tried to get the technical drawing off the website. I love the technical drawings because they really show the lines of a garment.)
I will be making this out of brown fine wale corduroy.
And the shirt: New Look 6407
I am not sure what I am going to make this out of. I have two choices. One is a solid and the other is a really pretty lavender stripe. Eventually I think that both with be made into this shirt if I can get the fit right on the first one.
I am a little nervous to start the shirt. I have been reading about all the "fun" others have been having with their fitted shirts over at Pattern Review. I am hoping that this project does not totally frustrate me.
First though, I will start with the skirt. I think that it will break me back in slowly to fitting garments for myself. I am hoping to start tonight.
I wish that I had shirt fabric that would coordinate with the skirt. It would be so much fun to make a coordinating outfit. Up until now I have not purchased fabric with coordination in mind. I just purchase what I like or what might go with other things in my closet. After I get rid of some of this stash I will definitely try to purchase fabrics with more of a plan. Everything is a learning process!
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a fantastic day!!
Until next time...
