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

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.

I have made the blazer once before and it surprises me how quick it is to make.

Polka Dot Archer and Stripe Blazer (Repeat)

My goal for 2015 is to make garments I will wear in my everyday wardrobe.  Not to say I won't sew a dress or a skirt but those are not my daily wear to work garments.  As many you know I work in agriculture so that is a more casual atmosphere and so that means knit tops, Ginger jeans and Archer shirts!  So yes, you are seeing another Archer shirt

Camas Blouse

Indiesew Camas Blouse by Thread Theory using a rayon knit from Style Maker Fabrics

A beautiful blouse and beautiful flowers what a lovely combination.  My blouse is from Indiesew and it is the Camas Blouse by Thread Theory. and this has been on my list since it was released.   The design of the blouse brought me right in then when I read more about the blouse, particularly the fabric suggested..... knit.  After that I really wanted this pattern now, it is made from my favorite type of fabric.   You all know I love my knits!

Friday Fashion Inspiration - 23

I read an advertisement which stated these are the top 10 must haves for Spring.  Well, that gave me an idea for Friday Fashion Inspiration.  I am going to do 1 to 5 today and 6 to 10 next week, using a several sites for ideas.  For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere and heading to fall, some of these will work great for you, too.
