Today we had photograph-friendly weather, so the Mister captured over-shirt and capri pictures for me:
|Slim white capri pants are my answer to a mini-dress.|
|And a matching camisole is my answer to a deep neckline.|
|I proclaim this outfit a success all around.|
|The pattern is from Burda World of Fashion 05-2008-128.|
|Inspiration was the outfit on the left. |
White capris and white camisole
worn beneath a light, breezy over-shirt,
or, as I now realize - any short dress.
And good news on that BWOF 05-2008-128 pattern - I fixed it! In my last post about this pattern, I mentioned it had problems and I did not expect to sew it again. I re-considered that assessment and I simply made a small bust adjustment to the pattern and sewed it up again. The fit was correct (yay!) but then I made some irreversible sewing mistakes and really prefer not to discuss it any further. You know how it goes. Sometimes, the whole thing goes into the trash can and it's best forgotten. The fabric lost in that sewing crash was the pretty pink plaid shown on my dress form in this post. Yes, it is better to forget and carry on. There will be more fabric and more shirts from this pattern.
Except for a few more photos, I am finished with SWAP 2012. It feels good to finish sewing with a plan (loose as it was) and I look forward to some very random sewing in the weeks and months ahead.
