I finally snapped some pictures of me dressed in the outfits.
1. The Sewing Workshop Mission Tank and TNT Pants in the brown twill linen from FFC.
2. The Burda OOP Cardigan and TNT straight skirt in a chocolate brown rayon/lycra knit from EOS.
The best thing about these four pieces are the little extra details. The black dyed lace on the tank and the piping added to the front of the cardigan:
I don't think you can see it in the pics but the skirt has side slits instead of the normal back slit opening. The slits open about a 1/2" above my knee and are open to the hem. It was taking the time to add the special touches to this set of garments that made this sewing weekend so rewarding.
And here is a sneak peek at the beginnings of Butterick 6619, my next sewing project:
I am using a black/creme linen purchased from Fabric Mart's Sample Cut Club. I have added a black satin rattail piping to the neckline and front of the bodice. I will add the same piping to the hem of the short sleeves. The dress skirt is made of pleats. Will keep you updated on the progress of this second edition from The Season of the Dress!
So do you think I had a productive sewing vacation?
