February 3, 2013:
Well it has taken a long time for me to get back to my wardrone but I am determined to make it,. So the first garment is finsihed
Vogue 8731 see review hereClick Here
This is my composite review for the Mini-Wardrobe Contest for 2012. Hope I chose the right contest when I set the review up.
I bought a bright Red-Orange Jones New York Jacket last Fall and have only worn it a few times because it is RED-ORANGE. So this contest is the perfect opportunity to make some things to go with it.
I plan to make three tops and one pair of slacks and one pair of gauchos as follows:
Top #1: Vogue 8597 in an ITY "watercolor" beige, red and brown print
Top #2: Vogue 8731 in a red orange/brown Geometric ITY knit
Top #3: Here I have the fabric but not necessarily the pattern. I am going to use an orange, brown, gold and olive floral polyester charmeuse. But I am not sure of the pattern yet...perhaps Vogue 8668 or Butterick 4811...but this could change!
Slacks: My TNT slacks pattern in a brown stretch twill with an orange stripe.
Gauchos: Butterick 5681....okay so the additional piece has become the first one that I am sewing. I will have to edit down and right now I am thinking the charmeuse top is the one that will come out of the wardrobe...but still not sure.
