I think McCall's 7094 would work and just lengthen for a dress and add some button on the plackets.

Briar T-Shirts


Fabric Mart's recent sale on knits was too good too pass up and I filled the cart up with some new knits.

This lovely stripe rayon was turned into a Briar T-Shirt

I love this fabric and the style of the shirt.

Grainline Studio Morris Blazer

Grainline's Morris Blazer was purchased very quickly after the release as I love anything from Grainline Studio.

I didn't make it right away after purchasing the pdf pattern but I contemplated the fabric to use.  I went with this Mood Fabric's Derek Lam novelty knit

Tuxedo Jacket and Silk Blouse


Mood Fabric's silk-wool twill jacket using Papercut Bellatrix pattern for a tuxedo jacket look

Summer means bright and fun colors but in reality  you just can't escape black and white and/or cream.  These two colors are classic and always show up in fashion, plus they just go with everything.   I wear the cream/white so much better than the black so I went with a cream heavy look with accents of black for these two garments.
