Well ya'll, the black & white dress is finally done, made from Butterick 5500 that I mentioned in an earlier post. Here it is open with black top & pants underneath. Sorry that this picture is dark around the bottom. It hits me right at knee length. This is it belted as a dress. Not that it took me so long to make it just finding time to sew. I was able to finish it Saturday. I was also able to make this knit top as well since I had it cut out & ready to sew. This one is from Vogue 8580, view D. It was supposed to be a tank top, I wasn't happy with it without sleeves (I don't like sleeveless tops) so I don't even know why I started to make it that way. So I put sleeves on it and made it a plain ol' top. The fabric is a wonderful soft knit, I'm not sure of the content but it feels like a silk jersey. I love the way it turned out. This picture really doesn't do it justice, the color is a lot richer.
Here's another one, almost done, it's also a soft poly knit. This one however is giving me a real workout around the neckline, it's stretching out of shape so it's giving me a fit. SO, we'll see how this one turns out, I'll keep you posted on that one. Yes, I have a black & white theme going. I love black and white, I'm working on building my wardrobe around black, white & red.
Here is one last top that I currently have cut out and ready to sew and I hope to get to it soon. Sew & Sew #5444. I'm using this fabric for this top, yep...it's knit. I guess that my other theme lately. I will be mixing other colors in, I really do love color also but the black, white & red will be my base colors. I need to get some more pants made and start working on jackets too. So, I've got lots to do and so little time but I chuggin' along.
Hope everyone had a great and productive weekend. More later...
