Your Wish is My Command (Part 2)

My last post showed quite a few of the new pieces that I had recently completed - and here are the rest of the garments.  To date . . . . . I may have another 3 or 4 planned!

Now, somewhere amongst the garments from this post and the previous one are my entries for the Artisans Square Summer 6PAC!  Just need to identify them and create a collage!

So what is next?  I picked up 3 patterns from the recent Tina Givens sale, and I am ready to try some different styles.  Fabricland is also having a pretty good sale so I picked up some more linen mix (I have been using a linen/rayon mix) really cheap, in the light blue that I used for a jacket on my previous post, as well as a gorgeous 'jewel' sapphire blue.  Watch this space!

I just wanted to comment on a reply that was left about the fabric that I use and ironing.  I am embarrassed to say that I have 'misplaced' the comment, so will reply here!  It would appear that Tina Givens (my here - not that you would have noticed!) throws her linen garment in the wash, and once dry . . . . they are ready to wear.  Personally, I need a little more structure to satisfy my OCD tendencies, but I also don't want to lose the soft edging that raw edged bias binding and the patches leave, so I have only been ironing those garments that look really rough when they are dry!  My off white Jaqueline pants needed ironing as they looked a mess when they were dry, but the white Jacqueline slip (the one with the lace patch on the front) can go straight in the closet.  I suspect that the fabrics have slightly different compositions and that is what the difference is.

How is your summer sewing?

  3. That collection of clothing is to die for, so many different looks are possible, each better than the next.

    1. Thanks Rosemary. I have been perfecting details as I go along - how I attach buttons, adding a clothing label, finishing raw edges etc., and I'm loving how the clothes go together and the layering options. It's like being able to dress up . . . . and then walk out the door with the same clothes on!

  4. I asked the ironing question :) I just asked it a few days ago, but on an older post so thank you for responding. I don't know how wrinkly I can go, but I agree that that softness adds character. The blend would certainly affect how wrinkly the garment becomes. I'm so glad you posted all you (many!) outfits, they are terrific!

  6. I think the multi layered look suits you really well. These are the ones that I like best on you. The pink Zelda is lovely.

    1. Thank-you! I do enjoy wearing these clothes - I feel rather glamorous in a slightly eccentric kind of way!
