Still Going - I mean Sewing - New Look 6810



Pearly had her eyes set on this pattern long before me. She made the first one and then I had to find something to use to make it, too. From cutting to completion = about 2 hours! I love instant gratification sewing!
I think I want to make the sleeveless with ties next.

The fabric was a red dot clearance item from JoAnn's - poly/rayon/lycra. I buy the cheapo stuff from JoAnn's to "practice" on. Obviously with my height, there are a lot of pattern revisions to make, so by using practice fabric, I avoid losing a lot of $$ in case the piece doesn't fit. So far, because of very careful measuring, I haven't had to discard anything. Woohoo!

My next goal is to try pants, I think. Yikes, the thought of that scares me.

I'm thinking of these pants:

I like the lower left top, too, but that can wait for another day.
