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 BRAILLE Dress Shirt.
Welcome to Level 2 of my design skills, folks… symbolism in design!
You know how they say love is blind? See what I did with it on a sexy “suggestive” 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 FIRST Dress Shirt.
My secret sewing past!
I SERIOUSLY need a photographer when you see the photos in this post and recall the other crappy ones I took of myself and my garments!
I’ll try to organize one for Guild members this summer so you can have nice pics of you in your garments!
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. 🙂
The CHINOLINA Dress Shirt.
This one will be mostly for hanging rather than wearing, sadly, but a redesign and redo is in store probably next week. I’m on a roll and got the heat to make my sweatshop more literal! However, I’ll have to break this streak this weekend for costuming.
The TOILE Dress Shirt.
At last, the dress shirt fit and style I wanted! Now to start slicing it up for pattern variations!
The DRAPERY Dress Shirt (Draft).
I don’t know if I’ll be wearing this dress shirt often. Drapery is a tad rough on the neck. However, it served several good purposes and won’t be the last shirt I ever make from drapery, that’s for sure. That’s what I have all that lining skill for! 🙂
The ILLUSION Dress Shirt.
For those in the Guild, lots of dress shirts, including this one, are what you will be seeing from me when we start up again in September! Most won’t be this crazy, though… I hope! 🙂
The Cannibalized Dress Shirt.
If you were at the last ASG meeting to see this dress shirt, that’s the last time you’ll ever see it. Muahahahaha!
But wait till you see what I did with it!
