Marfy Top 1913

I forgot to share the Marfy blouse/top 1913 I have made this year.

This top I have worn very often this summer. It was the perfect combination with the silk skirt. I like the colours and pattern on the fabric and the style of the blouse.
I will for sure make more tops based on this pattern. I won’t be the first one – check here different version of this top made by Leisa.

MMM 2013 and my business trip

For the fist time I was packing for my business trip with greater concentration then usually.

I had to take into account not only number of days, the weather, meetings, dinners, social activities but the Me-Made-May 2013 challenge as well.

Herewith a summary of my MMM2013 wardrobe during this trip.
Additionally I had to remember to take pictures. They are not so good – taken by phone in a hotel room at the mirror … But here they are:

Just before leaving to the airport 9th May – I am wearing my dark blue jacket (Simplicity 4991) from boiled wool and top based on Jalie pattern 2682:

I did not use the elastic tape for finishing the back neck line but I used stripe of the same jersey. As you can see I have changed the finishing of armholes in this model as well.
I love working with jersey, sewing on serge – it is so easy…

The back neck line and armholes I have finished as well with the stripe of jersey only this time I turned it over and stitched.

I like both of them and I will for sure wear them often. Definitely addition to my wardrobe essentials.

Having my camera on I have taken as well photos of my other top I have made base on Vogue pattern 7799. I was posting about it here.

My skirt with high tail fits as well good and I am really glad with the final result.

Next week there is a huge fabric market – Stoffen Spektakel in Zwolle (NL) – and I am already making a list what kind of fabrics, colours, prints I would like to buy. I am very excited! I am sure there will be a lot of summer fabrics….

Just a skirt – fabric stash busting

DSC_0181I have bought once this piece of fabric. It is a wool bland in white, black, grey colour. It will be fine for this colder days. It is just enough for a skirt.

I am going to make this skirt with raised waist – based on Butterick pattern B5396.

This is the same pattern I was using for making a Little Dark Blue Dress (which BTW is still waiting to be finished).

skirtThe front and back is already cut off from the fabric and I have already put the zipper in the back.

I am now busy with lining and interfacing.

This will be my weekend project. I would like to finish it so I could start working on my coat.
