Another color scheme for our Sanctuary Choir. I thought it would have been a good way to get rid of a couple of yards of stashed fabric. So I chose to do S9825.
Originally, I was going to do View C, but after I measured the finished length to my body, I would have to add another full skirt to it to make it church decent! The finished length for View C (in ALL sizes) is 17 inches! Now we ALL know that a 17 inch skirt will not fit
the same way it will fit

So, I had to go to the View B skirt. Much better. I put a few personal touches on this one. (I actually liked how another reviewer put bias on her seam allowances so I bit.) It actually made the inside a whole lot better.
The side seams are nice too although I did not put bias on them. I serged them in black to coordinate the bias. (Actually, that’s all I have is black and white serger thread. lol I chose black.)
Here are the buttons and the full shot of the zipper. Boy am I getting superb results these days!
Free Vogue Pattern
I took lots of photos because three reviews are in this one outfit. The free vogue shirt was very simple and my second time at this top. I like it a lot but I think this is my last time making this one for a while. This is the first version.
The last article is the pattern for this tank top I had for a very long time. I made the long sleeve blouse a long time ago and kept the pattern…because that’s what I do. I keep patterns. I decided to go ahead and do the tank and retire it. Although this is just a mock up it’s ok. (The reason for the ripples in the pictures.) I did not sew down the tricot lining because I am going to use it in the ‘real thing’.
Here’s the pattern:
The pattern calls for a woven. I used a knit. Hence the reason this is a mock up. But away with the blabber, here are some photos:
I like this look with the belt:
Another look with the scarf I made with left over fabric from the vogue top:
I have to add the pictures with the Vogue top later because my camera died in the midst of the session. I have more batteries and will take pictures tomorrow and post them for the world to see.
Until Later and more pictures,
