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.
Love your “sewing moodboard”.
Thank you, Calandra! Thank you so much for stopping by.
