Here I go again. I am still sewing from Yoshiko Tsukiori’s Japanese sewing books. There are so many patterns! This is my go-to source for simple everyday clothes.
I made another Jersey Bolero from Sew Chic.
This time I used denim with white top stitching and added a lining. I need to make a pencil skirt for this. Loving the silhouette.
The next garment is from Stylish Dress Book: Wear with Freedom. Tunic Q.
Finally, I decided to conquer my fear of sewing knits on my sewing machine. After several false starts, I did a Google search and found that I needed to use a “walking foot” and ball point needle on my machine. That did the trick. I sewed McCalls 6612.
Love this pattern, the cowl neckline is my favorite. My only issue is that I tend not to wear straight cut, form fitting clothing because I am pear shaped. I am an A-line kind of girl. I have gotten all kinds of advice on how to make this style work on me. Get some Spanx, wear a belt and jacket, add ruching at the waist, drink tea, sigh. I think I will add more ease to the side seams to make more of an A-line dress. Either way, I will be using this pattern again. It has lots of versatility.
