I have to admit that making a complete outfit out of separates makes me feel really proud. I've found that people I run into (who know that I sew and knit) will ask if I've made part of it, but they assume the rest is store bought. I just think that's really fun :)
Here are two things I've made! The shirt is once again Vogue 8634. It's such a great pattern, and I sewed it up so quickly the second time around. If you're looking for a pattern to experiment with sewing knits for the first time, this would be a good candidate. The fabric I used is an interlock knit from JoAnn Fabric. I'm temped to make more, but I'm a little nervous that my wardrobe would get too predictable with so many big collars :) Please note how the collar is artfully arranged. David's helpfulness is not only limited to photography, but also includes collar prepping.
The skirt is Simplicty 2411. It's a pretty straightforward skirt. I made most of it in the spring and then lost interest when the weather got warm, so all I needed to really do this fall was put in the lining and finish it up.
I've been trying to blog frequently, but I STILL have a huge backlog of things to show you! I'll be back soon. Have a happy Monday :)
