McCall's 7818 - Green and White Seersucker

McCall's 7818 oversized blazer made in Mood Fabrics' seersucker

 The new trend in jackets is the oversized blazer and I couldn't wait for fall to make one!  My blazer will be perfect for the end of summer and I picked Mood Fabrics' Green Candy Striped Seersucker.  This fabric comes in several different colors and I loved working with this seersucker.

Scout Tee - Silk Border Print

Grainline Scout Tee made from a Silk Border print

Easier projects, I do love them.  I usually turn to them when I need a quick sew, want to sew up some stash or going to start a larger project.  This Scout Tee happened because of all three!

This pattern was selected because of the fabric, the fabric needed to be the star.  It is an amazing Mood Fabrics' Silk Crepe de Chine sorry sold out.  The Scout Tee is a nice basic that shows off the fabric.  I have made this pattern several time (see here).  The very first one I still have and love wearing it.  I also love the knit one I made with print mixing,  When I made the denim one, it was a bit tight.  I looked in my pattern to refresh my memory.  I have a size 8 and a size 10, well the size 8 is for the knit and size 10 is for wovens.  This one fits so much better.

Here is the back.  I really don't have much to say about this pattern, it is a good one and I like to make it.  Quick and always looks good.  Plus it is a fabulous layering piece.

One more royal blue quick project but all the photos turned out not so good.  This one is the
 Union St. Tee.  I wider neckband from a floral knit and the same fabric for the pocket.  Good news, pocket is up higher so placement is good.  These knits came from Mood, they are nice but very thin, so I don't love them.  It will be a good top to have something new for end of summer.  I have been taking in my Union shirts at the side seams. in fact, I should go down a size.  This one I am happy I didn't go down that size yet.  The thin knit looks better with the oversize.
