I thought you might like the Me Made desserts first. I love to bake for special occasions and the recipes are on my food blog.
Here’s my church outfit for a cool Sunday morning on Day 19.
By the afternoon, I took the little ones to the park to kick around a ball. Thanks Amy for taking this pic.
Skinny jeans – Vogue 1204 This wool blend fabric is perfect for cooler weather.
Here’s Mum in a Me-Made fleece fully lined Burda 7749 coat and Me-made lined self-drafted skirt, off to church. I think I should make another jacket for Mum this season.
Then Day 20 at work I rugged up for work and Jeanne took this shot.
Top – Jalie 2921 scarf top
Navy wrap – Simplicity 2603 wrap
Jacket – McCalls 6292 snakeskin trimmed jacket
Trousers – Burda 7746 lined trousers
Day 21 is an after work pic. I made this wool skirt many years ago with a double-breasted jacket and a short skirt too. The fabric was given to me by an aunt from overseas so it took me some time to cut into it and I will always keep it as a memory of her and that visit.
Sandwich bolero from 2011. This is a good travel piece.
Top – Kwik Sew 3740
Skirt – never blogged. That’s how long ago I made it.
PR is running a fitted blouse contest that I’m managing from 1 – 31 March.
“Contest Theme: Cut, sew, model and review a fitted blouse to showcase fitting skills.”
So while there are some key elements your blouse needs to meet to qualify for this contest, if you already have a fitted blouse pattern in your stash that needs tweaking, consider making it in March.
Here’s a link to the fitting workshop I attended last year to get this blouse fitted right.
As this contest runs from March 1 – 31, there’s more time to sew up your blouse than you would have had in February.
These are a few of my fitted blouses that I prepared earlier. Does that sound cheesy enough?
One of the contest criteria is to provide a photo with you wearing the blouse to showcase your fitting skills, so my pictures showing the blouse on a dressmakers dummy would not qualify. As a manager I don’t qualify either but I do enjoy helping others sewers share their knowledge and extend their skills.
Convinced yet to sew a fitted blouse?
