I made it through all 7 days of week 2 wearing me-made clothes! Here is a recap of the second half of the week.
May 9: The shirt is a heavily modified version of Simplicity 2255. I removed all the darts, and added gathers at the shoulder seam for shaping.
I also altered the button positions, so that they are placed in pairs down the front placket.
The jeans were altered to a narrower trouser-style fit from the original wide leg trousers that they were.
May 10: This is a self-drafted shirt with a modified princess seam and cap sleeves. This is quickly becoming another of my go-to shirt patterns. I used this pattern to showcase one of my favorite Liberty prints, the Tatum in aqua.
Even the side view shows pretty decent shaping. I'm pretty proud of this pattern!
May 11: I went walking about Boston proper on Saturday in this dress, made from a pattern that I cannot find (it's either butterick or simplicity). The front wraps around to tie in the back.
It also has side-seam pockets, useful when strolling about town.
May 12: Sunday was a lazy day. I hung out around the house sewing in this comfy knit shift. This was a very simple A-line dress with raglan sleeves, finished with white bias binding.
That's it for week two! Stay tuned for the rest of MMM'13!
Also, happy Monday!
