My favorite tops are definitely the 2 Alabama Chanin inspired tops. Discovered a love for hand-stitching and though I may be oh-so-slow, it is a process I really enjoy. Used NEWLOOK 6735 as the base shirt.
free pattern from Maria Denmark that makes up quickly into a nice little shirt that goes well under jackets, or on its own.
Vogue 1247 Rachel Comey top and self-drafted, lined skirt were worn lots even though this top is a little big on me. When the reviews say a pattern runs big, it runs big and the size 10 swallows me..... but who cares! It is a great top out of soft, fluid moving fabric and the converging seams matched perfectly. Plan to make it again soon cutting a size 6 flaring to a 10 at the hem and taking out the big curve at the sides.
self-drafted floaty top has been fun to wear too.
my poncho even more!!! Ponchos are fun to wear and this one was a fun creative process to make altering the McCall's M6209 pattern to delete the scarf attachment, used selvage edges for the finish, and a biggie...... add flannel lined pockets with a big button! Gotta' have pockets! The Shetland Lace Scarf, also in photo below, accessorizes the poncho perfectly.
Road to Oklahoma quilt for my cousin Clifford.
participated in Gene Black's quilt ministry and donated a strip quilt to be given to a child in a children's home in my home state of Alabama.
it was a good chance to go different places to focus on the photography, as well as the garment.
Happy Sewing 2015 everyone!
