Progress Report for Gengal
Contest: Natural Fibres Contest     Managed By: velosewer

  Photo Pattern Used Points Items Made Yardage Used Description Last Updated
1 Simplicity:undefined (Skirts) 1 1.000 5.000 I had meant to enter the jacket & skirt together, as one entry, for this contest, but couldn't figure out how to enter more than one pattern used for the outfit.
I chose this skirt, rather than the one that came with the jacket (I entered) because it looked like one I could get more use of.
I can see it with a t-shirt top for casual, at work wear or with the jacket that coordinates for a formal get together.
It was made out of Embroidered 100% cotton fabric. I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked best, so practical me, decided on the black background for the main part of the skirt, and the white background for the godets. The godets are interlined with white 100% cotton, and the skirt is lined with black 100% cotton voile. The waist is elasticized.
The skirt took a bit of time to cut out, due to the amount of pieces, but it sewed up quite quickly.
It fits nicely & I am looking forward to wearing it soon!

2 Simplicity:Jacket, Pants & Skirt (Coat/Jacket) 1 1.000 3.500 I made the jacket in Embroidered 100% Cotton fabric. This fabric came in both the negative & positive color way. Since I couldn't decided which color background I liked best, I decided to use them both.
The main part of the jacket was done in the black background, and the lapels were done in the white background.
I omitted the ties in the front & substituted a button & loop closure.
I did lengthen the jacket body 1 1/2 inches.
I love the way it fits.
