Dress is a New Look mock wrap, Fabric is FabricMart ITY
Sweater is a McCalls(6844) pattern in a mystery knit from FabricMart
and I made some modifications to the pattern, added belt carriers, a tie belt and pockets.
I wear at least one handmade garment a day on most days and this shouldn't be a huge stretch for me. I have not taken a pledge of any sort, I don't really do pledges anyway (no New Years Pledges either) but I do better with an overarching goal. So since I wear at least one handmade garment a day anyway I figured I would document each day with a picture this year. I am a little slow to start and missed the first week but here is my second week!
Grainline Alder in a thrifted cotton
McCalls (7348) T shirt dress in a Modal/lycra from FabricMart
and the sweater tied around my waist is a McCalls (7484) sweater in FabricMart rayon/lycra.
Butterick (5526) Top in Cotton Voile from Hancocks
Grainline Maritime shorts in a stretch cotton sateen from Hancocks
This is my second favorite outfit of the week, its just about perfect to me, the shorts fit comfortably and I love a button down when I know that I can roll the sleeves down the air conditioned indoors.
Hey June Raglan made from salvaged(a project that went awry) black rayon lycra and the white ribbed knit is from a 4X white tank bought at Walmart.
Picture credit goes to my 4 year old :)
Simplicity (1167) Tank made from a FabricMart rayon/lycra.
This has to be my favorite outfit of the week.
The jeans are comfortable and I love this McCalls (7387) top, its very loose and breezy for summer heat but still feels put together.
I can already see that I need at least one more pair of shorts and since I love wearing the McCalls top, I should make another one of those as well.
Well that's it for this week!
Happy sewing and thanks for reading!
