Simplicity 1621 – Muslin Vintage sheet

Hello again

I’ve just come back from a fitting with Mrs M

Simplicity 1621

Image

It is for a wedding in August, and is going to be made in Bubblegum pink linen…

Image

Isn’t it lovely…. I personally would never have chosen this colour, BUT I think it’s totally going to work with Mrs M. I think everyone knows what colour suits them. With the wool and button I’ve made a massive crochet flower….

Image

What do you think?!?!?!?

************************

So on to the muslin construction, I generally use vintage sheets to make up my muslin’s. They are pretty, and are easily bought from second hand shops AKA Thrift stores!

Image

As ever, when i’m cutting out a pattern I take over the kitchen table! We all do that?!? RIGHT?!?!

And here is Mrs M modelling the the font view….

And the back view…

So What alterations are required?!?! The pattern is cut out in a XL the bust darts are L and I have added 3/4 sleeves (They are from the jacket in the pattern) Due to the bust dart alteration, the shoulder straps are a mite too long also.

Next up

The real thing!

Sewing class with a vintage bonus… + winning the overlocker over!

Morning peeps

Well it’s another quickie but….. it is a very productive one! (I have my Accountancy course today)

I had said that my swing class was a little “relaxed” for my liking but I have to say I am sewing soooo much more at home… Which is defo a knock on effect, in a very positive manner!!!
I have managed to sort out the tension problem 😀 on the overlocker..
I’m well on my way with the lined pockets for my Amy Butler jacket…. I’m also making a new set of pj’s and attempting the placket… I normally omit this but I want to challenge myself!! I plan on blanket stitching on a bit of applique lettering too.

*******

Now on to my fab fab new patterns…. These were given to me by my sewing teacher, She felt I would get a better use out of them!!! I just have to find a good soures for getting them sized right….

Do you have any good sources for re~sizing patterns?!?!!? I’m thinking Gertie might have all the answers!!

Till tomorrow peeps…
(more creative peeps here)

Today the to do list is massive sorry for the rush post!!

HAPPY THURSDAY
