This project has not only been ready for ages (September/ October 2014) but was in wearing rotation non-stop till the weather turn colder. I love making stuff and of course to share “fashion” photos (photography/styling is also a passion hence picture heavy posts) but it can get a bit boring being my one & only model all the time. I think most bloggers get tired of their over exposed image once in a while and some projects can get skipped.
Since my mom is here for a few weeks and sewing room is packed away I took the opportunity to dig this out for you. Ps: No, I’m not wearing handmade jeans. I want to tackle jeans and bras at some point this year. Thinking to try both the ginger and the jamie at the same time and compare.
Firstly, I must say how much I LOVE this project! This is one those makes that been blessed by sewing magic.
The pattern and the fabric are perfectly matched. Even thou this is super girly (for me) the print just make me incredibly happy. All shirts should be made out of Voile. Delicious! I used Emmy Grace by Bari J for Art Gallery. The finishing touchers are as cute as the fabric. Pink Buttons and different denim scraps for the collar/under collar and plackets.
Details are so important specially on handmade clothes.
The pattern is Tyler shirt by named. I sewn size 38 with a very small FBA. I cannot remember how much because my muslin and alterations were made in june and I didn’t write anything. I normally do so I was quite
confused grumpy when I couldn’t find any details. I will have to recollect stuff from memory. Oh forget it.
The only change I would do for the next one is to make the collar bigger. Being tall I can carry volume. Tiny/cutiesy details looks out of place. Being a romantic at heart I love little pretty things but they just disappear with my personally! That’s what I tell myself anyway.
I have posted a lot of details photos over the web during the making off including my tips for perfect buttonholes.
Now, give me get back my coat! Brrrrrr….
Ps: I have only a few preschedule posts for the next weeks while Mom’s here but you can follow our adventures on Instagram
