Chugging Along...

Another weekend without much desire to sew...but I did get a little more done on the Vogue 8935 outfit.  The top is almost finished...




...and the skirt has been started.




It's looking like I imagined and the top fits without the extra boxy-ness that the original pattern has.  I've made a few changes to the outfit during construction, besides the pattern alterations, which I'll discuss in the reveal post. However, I'm happy with how the pieces are looking so far.

I'm thinking that I won't have the "Five in Five" garments done in the time frame I'd originally imagined...but I'm okay with that.  I'll definitely finish these pieces next weekend and then I'm moving onto the coat project.

Just wanted to give an update...

...as always more later!

  7. That outfit is so versatile. The top can be paired with other skirts or pants, as well as the skirt paired with tops. Great pieces.

  13. Nice touch using a contrasting color on the collar and the sleeve cuffs. I must order this pattern when there is another sale.
