Click Images to enlarge!
Fabric: Printed Cotton
Conclusion: This is a great little pattern I really love it. I think next time I will make the longer version eliminate the center pleat and add more volume to the skirt. I like this look with the leggings it is super cute!
I know I have made this like 4 times already…lol I added a turtleneck 🙂
I love this skirt, it fits really nicely and it is so comfy 🙂
Skirt: Self Drafted Pencil Skirt
Fabric: an amazing Tweed fabric I bought a few weeks ago, I love this fabric I wish you could touch it 🙂 lol
Fabric: Silk Cotton Shirting
Modifications: Well, this was time consuming…geez! First I cut the princess panels and realized that the stripes would not match…Crap!!! so I re cut them and decided that I would angle the stripes on the side panels and it worked, it looks great! I then decided to angle the stripes on the cuff and I re-cut the collar so I could add a CB seam and create a chevron pattern for the CB.
Conclusion: I love this top!!!
Fabric: Grey Brushed Wool
Modifications: None really I used two silver belt closures for the belt and added 1″ to the length
Conclusion: I love it! it is so easy to make, I didnt even need the instructions, I does not call for a lining so i didnt make except for the peplum, I did not want to have a hem so I double faced it and then stitched it the bodice.
Modifications: I used the belted closures instead of the hook and eyes.
Conclusion: I love this jacket, the pattern was great and easy to follow, I used a colorful lining because that seems to be a signature for me..lol
Would I recommend it: Yes, I think this is a great little jacket 🙂
