Vogue in Green

June 15, 2017   /   byDiana  / Categories :  Feeds

The Fashion Show for which I sewed 100 items !!! and which my Sewing Group helped me put on was a huge success. We made a whopping $1200 dollars, $1000 of it going to charity, the rest I kept for my expenses. I'll sort through my photos and show you some of the items next time.

Today, I'm showing you the muslin (but very wearable ) of V9240




You may have seen my first version here.  This green version was made to test adding a bust dart to the pattern. After I found that to work well ,I put this one aside until it was time to wear summer clothes.






The sizing description for this pattern was fitted so I cut a size larger and that worked well for me.

The fabric is ponte knit from my stash but bought at Fabricville.. I had smaller quantity of the prints and because I cut the back piece all in one instead of the way the pattern showed,


,  I had to do this at the back hem .




And it doesn't look too bad, I think. I added that little wedge for added interest ????





I had a hard time to get these pics done. I think I need a new camera. Most of them were blurred for some reason. These were the only ones that weren't.



I'm every bit as tired as I look in these photos. I battled mosquitoes half the night ! Ugh !!!!  

Come back later and I'll post some of the things I made for my fashion show. They were all easy makes but very popular  !

First though I'm off to Quebec City with my sister for a few days . Yeah !

A New Adventure in Sewing

It was strongly suggested by a friend I be more sociable and get out of the house more often.  I decided taking a sewing class would fit the suggestion nicely.  However, since I live in a rural area, a town of 104, classes aren’t easy to find…
