Aloha dear readers! I have a new outfit to show you. I think working with gray the past 3-4 weeks caused me to gravitate to some of the most cheerful fabric in my stash for this next project. The complexity of the jacket also relegated me to a Burda Start 3 pattern for the top. I have made this t-shirt pattern before and I love the fit. The two patterns I used are Kwik Sew 3152 and Burda 3197. The skirt is made from a cotton lawn from FFC and has a swiss dot lining from Fabric.com. When I purchased the cotton lawn earlier this year, I had tried to find a perfect shade of blue for a matching top. No luck. However, I did find the perfect shade of blue at my local Old Navy where I purchased two XXL, men's, $5.00 t-shirts to cull the fabric from.
I've finished this post with 15 minutes left to spare before the start of Project Runway. I can't believe they are down to the final four. I am off to get my appetizers together for the show :) Thank you all for visiting and for your lovely comments on my Burda jacket!
