My Mojo is working...

I finished an outfit from this New Look (6735) pattern. This is really a nice simple pattern but I did run into some problems with the band around the neck, because I had to enlarge it across the back a little.So, I fixed it by running a center seam down the back tapering it toward the bottom, then splitting open the top part of the neckline and tacking it down. What a goof-up but it turned out OK. I forgot to take a picture of the back after I finished but it looks virtually unnoticeable.
Here a picture of the finished outfit. I see lots of twin sets in my future from this pattern.Up Next...I'm trying to get a really good fitting pair of pants. So today I spent the day cutting out about three different muslins. I'm not even getting close to what I want. No pictures on that adventure yet but I'll be taking pictures and posting on my next attempt. Cross your fingers with me. I don't want to burn out my Mojo on making these pants, I've got far too much I need to make...Spring is coming and I'll need plenty of Mojo for Spring & Summer sewing. More later...

Happy Sewing!!

    I totally forgot to mention anything about the skirt I love it too, it's a silk jersey and it feel so nice. I'll be making more outfits like this, great for Spring.
