Our guest and I did bust out the serger to make this outfit for his girlfriend. He needed to bring home something nice to assuage his guilt for going on a road trip/vacation while she stayed home to work.
A remnant I picked up at Fabrix during PR Weekend seemed just her style. I paired it with Kwik Sew 2874, a basic raglan shirt pattern I have sewn at least 5 times. We used the lower neckline of View C with the shaped hemline of View B and truncated the sleeves to just above the elbow.
Vogue 1224. That dress is scandalously short so I lengthened it 5-6" to 23" long to end just above her knees. The skirt pieces are ingeniously shaped to curve around the hips and peg at the hem to exactly the right width to appear perfectly straight. It's like wearing the Parthenon columns (Art History humor).
The recipient is unfairly tall and slim with big shoulders, small hips and long legs. I cut the top in size medium and the skirt in size 12.
If you are keeping score, I've now sewn four of the pieces I picked up at PR Weekend.
The outfit looked vaguely familiar. Then I realized that I had previously paired KS2847 and V1224 to Frankenpattern the dress I wore in Unschooling. Myrna may be interested in reading that post that because Iris wore Vogue 8936, a dress that she wants to make.
