My sewing is going to be boring for the next couple of dresses. I'm trying to amass a few more work dresses for really corporate type meetings so I'm relying heavily upon my TNT dress pattern to make them.
The previous two dresses had variations done to them so that they would look a little different (faux welt pockets/chevron'd front insert). This version is sewn as is. When I asked my DD if I should add some gray piping to the neckline and armholes, her response was, "Can't just leave it alone can you?"
So here is my Liberty of London Sheath Dress alone:
'nuthin spectacular right? Just a good basic sheath dress.
And here it is with the New Look 6788 jacket that I made a couple of years ago:
2.5 yards of Liberty of London fabric purchased from EOS earlier this year
2.5 yards of gray rayon bemberg lining
22" gray invisible zipper
3 yards gray rayon hem tape
3 yards 1.5" black lace for the hem
I also cut out a black linen version of this dress and a cute little shawl collared bolero jacket in the same fabric to be worked on next weekend. Hopefully after that I will make my version of the B5147 dress using one of the border prints I acquired this year.
I know it's boring sewing but it's necessary. Hopefully, you'll stick around 'cause I will go back to sewing the more fun stuff soon!
I bought some new shoes...and even though these are taupe & beige...they work well with the LL Dress and jacket.
...as always, more later!
