Joined the August Wardrobe In A Week (WIAW) contest over at Stitchers Guild, that is! After failing miserably to complete last years June Capsule Contest and this years SWAP, I think this is slightly more achievable. We get a week to prepare during which time we can cut out, fuse interfacing, mark darts etc - anything that isn't actual 'fabric piercing sewing'. Then we get a week to put the garments together - sounds like plenty of time..........right?
I would normally never attempt to use a new pattern for pressure sewing - but I have just received this pattern, Simplicity 2603 which I have been waiting impatiently for. It looks fairly simple, no real fitting involved and I have the perfect teal drapey knit for it. I will do a t-shirt or tank in the same fabric and I have a lovely print knit that matches really well, that may become another top to go underneath or I may decide to do two bottom pieces. At this stage they would be a skirt and a pair of pants, both in charcoal which is going to be my new neutral.
I will post a photo of the fabrics tomorrow - after I have finished the muslin for 'L's dress as she is coming for her first fitting tomorrow after work! Fingers crossed!
