A month ago I published a post about planning some production sewing and having cut 5 garments. I challenged myself to finish them in 2 weeks…. good plan, no surprise really that it didn’t work. But….I’ve finished all garments and there’s not one left as a ufo. Which is what has happened to me more than once when I’ve cut multiple garments.
So today is un update post on those 5 items and a little extra that I did prior to those. More record keeping than very interesting I guess, as these are more or less basic items.
1 pants / trousers
The grey one was done earlier, the other two were in the set of 5. All linen, all from this Burda pattern from the March 2012 issue. This pattern has a nice fit for me, though I made the leg width significantly smaller.
For the white version this was my inspiration:
I’m a little disappointed about the visibility of the pockets, as I lined this pair. I think/hope it will be a bit less visitble in real life, as I think photos accentuate more.
2 skirts. The one on the left has the pockets that I showed earlier. It’s a pattern from March 2010. The pattern has a zipper center front; I changed it to a zipper in the back and no seamline center front.
The first one is Burda April 2010, I made it twice before and worn those two a lot. A nice basic with special sleeve detail. I made the collar less pointed.
A shirt that I made soon after the Burda February was released (2018 issue), but never blogged about. The pattern comes with a detachable bow which I don’t like so didn’t bother about. I used variegated thread for topstitching, which is not visible in the photos, but a nice variation.
Finally: a t-shirt for which I used a StyleArc pattern. Changed the neckline but otherwise this is just a t-shirt.
With the blue/white jacket and the skirt I made last weekend this brings the total of the past 3 months on 10 garments. It’s been a long time I sewed so many garments in a relatively short time. My wardrobe has some good basics in it again.
Now it’s time for a bit of holiday sewing. We’ll be going to the south of France in a couple of weeks and I’d like to make one or two summer dresses and will try not put everything in one post again.
