Simplicity 3688 skirt and 4047 top. The coral polka dot fabric is a quilting cotton. I will be lining the skirt and underlining the blouse in an ivory quilting cotton. The idea for the crochet trim was inspired by vintage crochet gloves. Alas, I do not have crochet gloves nor a good excuse to wear them even if I did have a pair, so crochet trim will have to do.
The fabric didn’t seem like it would stand on it’s own, so I also bought a coordinating blue for the collar.
The quilt fabrics were picked out to match my family room.
This blog is a chronicle of my sewing adventures as I attempt to build a wardrobe of vintage-inspired clothing that works in the real world. I'm blogging to motivate myself to sew more regularly, to try more advanced techniques, and to share what I learn along the way.
During the day, I help associations with their marketing and communication projects as the owner of JMT Communications Management. You can learn more about that here.
