Back on the wagon...

(Vogue - 8668)  Front
I got a chance to sew a while today...Ya!  I'm almost done with the top I've been working on.  I just made a couple adjustments.  The sleeves are a little shorter than planned but it still looks good.  I don't know what happen but they came out really uneven (front piece to back piece).  So, I just evened them up making them shorter.   Since the fabric is chiffon I wanted to line it without changing the nice drape the fabric has so I lined it with black chiffon which worked out really great.
Inside, lined with enclosed seams


Chiffon isn't the easiest fabric to work with but I think it all worked out.  All I have left to do is hem the bottom and the sleeves and add the buttons.

Next I need to get back to getting some pants done amongst other things.  I have a jean style jacket already cut out in a stretch cotton zebra print.   Do you see a theme here, LOL!  Yes, I like animal print and haven't used any in awhile but have come across these that I really like so I'm going for it.   More later...
