projects completed

here is the shirtdress (simplicity 4171) in a great vintage floral cotton. i don't think it turned out too waitress-y (what is up with my hair??) and i love the print for spring.

here is the blouse (new look 6705) in white-on-white striped lino. i love the square yoke and the feel of the lino though it is a bit on the thin side. great for summer though. this blouse has a nice tie across the back which helps give it a bit of shape and fit while still being loose and blouse-y.

the pencil skirt is simplicity 4087 with a shaped waistband and small pleats on either side of the center front seam. i did it in a dark denim with a heavy gold thread for the running stitch detail.

thanks! it was super-easy too. center back seam and two side seams, front and back darts for fitting. and even though the sleeves are set-on, they're slightly gathered at the top, so there's no ease to control. even the inset piping in the collar was surprisingly easy. hooray for easy fun sewing!
