Latest Sewing Project
This is New Look 6947. I actually bought it last year and have already made the sleeveless top in a white with red stripe shirting material. It has some tucks at the neckline and a simple hook and eye closure at the back.
I got some cheapo fabric to make a 'muslin' of the jacket but it is actually turning out nice enough to use. I'm making it without the collar in a white pique, only on the reverse side so it is smooth instead of bumpy. Somehow, the bumpy side made me think too much of a tennis outfit.
So I'll bind it around the edges. It is light weight and will make a nice sort of cardigan for the spring.
I'm actually up to the sleeves already so this will be finished pretty soon. I'll take a picture of the finished project and post it.
Oh, and I'm not making the pants. I'm only 5'2" and chubby and I would look ridiculous in big pants like that.
