Almost Done

It was a good sewing weekend...





I made both the jacket (V1127) and the matching dress (TNT pattern) from the gray cotton blend...although both need hand work to be completely finished and wearable.  The jacket just needs a button sewn on.  The dress needs to be hemmed.

The VOT dress still needs a hem and the covered button added to the collar.  I guess I could have finished the Vogue jacket and the VOT dress but when I realized it was just 4pm in the afternoon, I went for it and cut and sewed the matching lined dress.

I know I promised pictures of me in the VOT dress this weekend but faced with the choice to keep sewing or stop and take pictures...well I went with "just keep sewing!"  *LOL*

So as soon as I've finished up the hand sewing on both outfits, I will post "fashion shot" pictures and detailed construction information on the jacket.  It was an interesting piece to sew and a little different from my norm.

...as always more later!

  1. Wow, Carolyn, did you come up for air this weekend? Seriously, you really got a lot done. Can't wait to see the fashion pics! I'm envious. All I got done was taking my 5 year old to two birthday parties!

  10. I'm loving what I'm seeing so far. And to answer your question about M&J and the lack of bias tape: Maybe because that's more of a supply item rather than a decorative item, and that's what M&J sells? I wonder if any of the ribbon stores on W38th closer to 5th sell bias tape in more flavors?

  11. You have to be extremely focused to sew that much in one weekend. Tunnel vision! Wish I had some of it. Those are nice dresses. I especiall like the gray with the jacket. That outfit can go anywhere, anytime.
