Sweater Dress with double contrast slouch collar and Free Flowing Jacket

Image
Didn't have enough of this Gold Sweater Knit so I improvised by using the little piece  and made a small slouch Cowel out of the color and then made a regular size  large slouch cowel collar and then sewing the two together before sewing them to the neck of the dress. The Free Flowing Jacket is the normal pattern I use, and made the usual scarf out of the  leftover side piece and matching earrings of both fabrics.  The scarf jewelry is an old  magnetic bracelet wrapped around the scarf. The pieces were cutout one night after work and they were sewn together the next night after work to wear the next day. I am trying to inspire you!

Total Outfits - for Vacation, Work or Play

Image
 What is a Total Outfit? In my closet it is a freeflowing Jacket with a tank, a pair of pants, leggings or tubins, a long dress and a scarf and earrings.  Maybe even 2 pair of pants, one as a print and one as a solid. Total Enough? My theory is when someone says, oh I don't like matchie matchie.... they just can't manage to make things match LOL But we can.... we can make this thing and that pull out the color from that thing and on and on... In between my regular sewing meetups, I manage to squeeze some time for... tonight a Tank for one outfit and a Lace Jacket and matching Long dress with the same lace as a Yoke insert.  Hopefully a sweetheart neckline.  I will probably make a shirt with the lace yoke also, if I have enough scraps. A  cha cha gore on each side of the bottom of the dress...when you are really going dancing maybe put one in the middle of the back. Done Earrings are made and matching lace scarf. Jacket the burnout, one scarf the burnout and one the dress print.

New Outfit for Spring

Image
  One of my favorite Patterns   Butterick B5045 This is the Jacket I make so many of... usually some kind of flowy material, like chiffon or lace.  It makes me feel very feminine.   I also like the fact that it is loose and hides a multitude of curves... 😁 I am going to make the pants to the ankles, but nice and loose and flowy out of a royal blue... found in the 2.97  TREASURE HUNT ROOM.  The jacket is one I couldn't resist, a printed chiffon with blues throughout and came off of the Poly special table, which is only 7.66 a yard.  But of course, we have our spring sale right now. That will be Pants, tank, Jacket = 20.00 for full set if you sew it yourself. Of course,  matching scarves and earrings for my total set. The elastic waist big leg pants will be quick and easy and I think I will make the tank top shown here out of the same royal blue.   The jacket will be the print.   See if I can wear it tomorrow. Here is a picture of the full outfit.  I made the jacket a little longer
