Photos...

Here are the photos of the finished garments...

First up - all the pieces made during the sewing vaca:


Here is a picture of me in the Vogue 8209 jacket and the TNT pants


A close-up of the jacket front....


The twinset worn with a TNT 4-gore skirt that's been in the wardrobe for a couple of years - actually its a skirt from my SWAP 2006 collection!


And one more shot of the dress (Butterick 5179) - that is growing on me! *LOL*


All in all it was several restful days off! I am sorry that I missed my friends in Chicago but I did sleep late, eat well, watch some of that expensive cable I pay for and spent days enjoying my hobby!

  1. Carolyn, I love all the latest additions to your wardrobe. My favorite is the pants suit. That jacket has a great look to it for a simple design

  16. What a great vacation you had! I love the pants suit, but the twin set really gets me. I almost bought that fabric and now I'm regretting my self-control. It all looks great on you, and congrats from saving yourself from UFO-buildup.

  19. Carolyn, I've been reading here for a v-e-r-y long time. All your clothes are attractive, but you should know that you are a knockout in your brown suit!

  20. Wow. That was a very productive vacation! I really like the brown suit. That's another pattern that I like better once I've seen a 'real' version so I'll have to go hunting I think. :)

  31. Great new clothes, Carolyn! I love the dress, but really, I love them all. Now you got me all dreaming of a sewing vacay! Sigh...

  32. You are inspiring me to take a vacation and try and create a mini collection... lol. Luv... Luv the suit.

    Maybe you can help me. I'm working on a dress (New Look 6785) for my dd and the yoke is similar to your Butterick 5179. The problem I'm having, once I baste stitched the sleeves and attached the yoke, my dd is having problems raising her arms, and unsure how to correct it. I'm currently in the process of removing the yoke. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You for the lovely compliment on my skirt & Top, and so excited that I was finally able to use my serger.

  33. Wow-wow-wow you surely have been productive! Love everything, but I must praise that dress (what a beautiful fabric) and the chocolate suit with the pink top. Beautiful!
