The dogs coats are boxed up and en route to Michigan. I'm trying to figure out what to sew next but in the meantime here is a shirt that I sewed up in December. This was either going to be a love or hate style for me and I actually LOVE it! I think it actually turns out to be somewhat minimizing on my upper half. The detail is above the bust so your eye goes up. I made a muslin out of dollar a yard poly and promptly chucked it when I was done but I found out I liked the design.
This is a yummy Rayon/Lycra knit from my old indie, Fabric Gallery, in Michigan that is no more. She retired. I found out she was selling out after I decided to move. I tell ya, if I had known prior to my move, I might just have bought her store!
I really am loving this pattern! There will be more of these, in fact, as I'm pondering a new coat to sew, I may make another one of these quickly. Once you figure out the construction, it's a breeze to make! I made my muslin wrong but figured it out before the final product.
Off to fondle fabric and stare at patterns to decide what to make next...
