Here’s a few new mock-ups I’ve made. Some of these are super basic pieces, but I have so many crazy patterns and colors I need some “quiet” items. The lingerie I plan on modifying the bodice from Butterick 5350, and adding a lace skirt to it, that may be loosely modeled on the skirt pieces from the same pattern. If I do that, I plan on shortening them quite a bit. The back will close with a swimsuit hook at the top and be open the rest of the way down. At least that’s the plan. I can’t wait to see that gorgeous teal blue-green velvet in person!
Simplicity 1613 View D I am hoping I have enough fabric to cut the neckline in the opposite direction. I think that will really make a difference in how this top looks. The fabric choice is not something I would normally buy, but I wanted to grab something different while I was in there.
The pants are in a tan twill and a dark blue denim, both of which have a little stretch. I’ve never sewn pants before but I feel like I am ready to give it a try. As it is, I have 3 pairs of jeans, and I would like to have a few more.
The Qwik Sew patterns are just basic tank tops and a cowl necked long sleeved tee. Dark brown, dark blue, and army green are the colors.
I’ve also just listed a few more clothing items in my Kittyloaf Shop, all store-bought clothes that no longer fit or I just don’t want. Everything that was store-bought is free- you just paying shipping. You can see the clothing items in my store by going here and clicking on the Yard Sale category.
