Pink Linen Simplicity 1621 with Crochet Embelishments

Good morning

I seem to be letting life take over sewing and blogging at the Minuit! I have at least 2 projects that need done yesterday and at least 3 blog posts photographed!

So here goes one off the list!

The Pink Linen Simplicity 1621 with crochet flower embellishment.

This was made for Mrs.M, She has a wedding in a few days now. Her wee boy is page boy and she was looking for something different.

We decided to go for this, it’s easy to wear. Simple but with WoW with the right fabric…..

 After much humming and hawing, we decided on this pink linen. It’s drape is divine and heavy enough to give a real sense of luxury (it was priced at £12.99  per meter). We bought and extra couple of bits for embellishments too..

But before any cutting of the real thing, I measured Mrs.M and altered the pattern. I always pick up second hand/thrift store vintage bed sheets for my muslin’s/toile’s. Mrs.M Wanted sleeves added too, so I used the jacket sleeves and made then 3/4 in length…

With the fitting done I has a few issues, the center back seam wasn’t sitting right the armscyle needed a little taking in too.  (Sorry about the photo quality…. It’s my phone!)

So on I went the “real thing”

 Simplicity 1621

For this fabric I use a squillion pins, because your garment is only as good as your cut!

Time for a few action shots……..

I do love this fabric it’s really loose but heavy with a fantastic drape, BUT it is a bit of a nightmare to work with. The darts were hard work…. I ended up hand stitching these!

This is my first time using bias tape as a type of finish/facing…. I have to say I am converted, Pressing is the key to a fabulous finish!

I have recently bought a Tailors ham, if you don’t own one and are serious about sewing…. Buy one! This shoulder for me is one of my best to date

So what can I say about Simplicity 1621, well it’s not a pattern I would have gone to for myself.  BUT now that I have made it for Mrs.M….. I might just make myself the original version on the envelope!
