Back to sewing: here it goes, look away NOW!
Jacket and trousers meant for Miss Y and I even have brown corduroy for the trousers in the attic...
I even went on an expensive day's sewing course where sewing with jersey was to be covered to find out how I can have neat seams with my swing machine on jersey ... it has fancy special stitches- only to be told not to bother but just buy an overlocker...!!!April 2011 and yet it seems longer ago.
When I was a 36-38B I could sew so happily but after breastfeeding two children I went up to a 34F and knowing that sewing patterns are for a B cup at most I lost my confidence.
It needs a wider panelled skirt for dancing though. Or stay slimline if it's for work.
Short sleeve in cotton with Vneck and high waist, just the ticket for me. March 2012 again, still deciding on the perfect fabric choice.
And THEN I discovered yet ANOTHER BOX....:
The contrast bands are in self fabric on my version.
Simple keyhole button at back of neck.
Made the waistcoat too but that did not work out.
WANTED TO DO THIS JACKET IN A COLOUR-BLOCKING EFFECT.
An excellent standard coat design with comfy raglan sleeves
That was 1991 I think.
