|end of the day, a little wrinkled|
Fashion fabric for Taffy Blouse: a sweet cotton lawn from fashion fabrics club. Created gray bias tape from Kona Cotton. Sewed using french seams and I used my roll hemmer foot for the hem.....I love the soft wavy effect. Fashion fabric for Meringue Skirt: a nice cotton twill from Hancock fabrics and the lining I used a black cotton sateen. Again, I made the bias tape for the edge facing and Hong Kong seams from a cute cotton print. Check out the inside of the skirt:
|cotton sateen is so nice for lining|
Adjustment notes: I lengthened the skirt an 1 so it would be work appropriate, and added a black cotton sateen lining. For the top I lowered the bust dart an 1", added length to sleeves, and a smidge more to the hips.
The is the 2nd time I have sewn a Meringue Skirt and Taffy blouse..........I love these patterns! Who knows I may sew a third set?
|already thinking of sewing up a matching jacket for this outfit|
