ILLUSION Dress Shirt (Take 2)

ILLUSION Dress Shirt (Take 2).

I’m still on pace for a garment a week on average so far this summer, while still having time to play lots of tennis. I won’t post most here so as not to hog the blog, still wishing more members would email me their garments pictures and writing details to post, or just other content to post. However, I will post the occasional garment I make that I really want to share and not wait till the fall. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

The TRANQUILITY Dress Shirt

The TRANQUILITY Dress Shirt.

I got my serger back (thanks to Pat for making it easier). Got further fitted patterns for my dress shirt. Dug into my stash of good fabrics at last for a full garment. Began a new garment design and making era with my Chinese Cowboy style dress shirt that I wore to work today and felt like a million bucks in. 🙂

Now to see how many more I can get done of different designs before our next Guild meeting… and going back to feeling $1.65 every day in the meanwhile in my regular old clothes.

The MUSLIN Pajama Top

Second go around at dress shirt fitting, with the hep of Tory and others. Instead of wasting muslins that I end up donating as fabric for craft makers, I salvage them for pajama tops now. They’re MORE than good enough for pajama tops cause it’s not like they’re not well-fitted. They’re just not perfectly fitted. 🙂
