This is a lightweight and spongy wool/spandex fabric, difficult to press, tailor and photograph because the gold is laminated on and it’s very stretchy, but it’s finished. Next time I’ll use a better fabric, I’m getting tired of difficult fabrics.
I’ve done two straight skirts from my own draft
The jacket that goes with the raspberry skirt is under the alterations glass. I swore I’d not try to fix it but I just can’t seem to leave it alone. The color will NOT be ignored.
Note to self: pass on silk/linen in the future. It is too stretchy and wrinkly.
This is a wonderful fabric, top quality and picked up from the remnant table at Textile Fabrics in Nashville for a song.
Wish I could have purchased more of it!
The chiffon blouse ended up to be fitted after all. I’m not in love with the diagonal drape but, hey, I am adventurous and try almost anything at least 15 times…
So, between the drafting, the cutting and the fitting, my weight fluxed, so everything has been taken in and the blouse needed to be nipped throughout the waist. This business of owning a body is tricky!
