October Club Garments

Debbie’s Garments:

Camel Stripe Peplum Shirt

Simplicity 8297, View D

100 % cotton woven

1. The facing was altered as a band for a more shirt-like look.

2. Shortened peplum. Eliminated front pocket.

3. Doubled the yoke and used the Hot Dog construction method.

4. Pattern called for horizontal buttonholes rather than vertical.

5. Used a two-piece cuff to utilize contrast fabric. Also used contrast for neck stand and band trim.

Camel Wrap Coat-Photo to appear soon 🙂

Simplicity 8796, View B

Wool Suiting-Lining 100% Silk

1. Shortened coat between bust and shoulder and between waist and bust.

2. Did a 1 inch narrow shoulder adjustment.

3. Used “soft”tailoring techniques – no hair canvas, used fusible interfacing and tie interfacing for sleeve head.

4. I was surprised how well this pattern went together. The instructions are clear, thorough and illustrated well.

Raglan Stripe Tee

Style Arc Madison Top

Cotton Knit

1. Shortened between shoulder and bust and between waist and hem.

2. Raised bust darts.

3. I like the cuffs and deep hems. I would make it again but a go down a size.

Center Front Flounce Tee

Sewing Workshop Urban Tee

Viscose Knit

1. Color blocked to gain more contrast but did not work as I envisioned.

2. This tee isn’t difficult to make especially if you use more modern and efficient sewing knit techniques.

Kristin’s Garments

Knit Trim Cardigan-Jacket

Hot Patterns 1209

Sweatshirt fleece, knit trim

1. Great ideas-top/down bust dart, darts on sleeve

2. Sleeve fit was not a drop and not a fitted?

3. Loved the trim-pattern calls for facing so I cut off all edges and added the knit trim.

4. Lost some of the darting and should have just added trim-no trimming-ha!

Split Hem Tee

New Look 6482

Rayon knit

1. Trying to achieve a split hem without having flaps right at hip area.

2. Armhole/sleeve is very nice.

3. Pattern markings are off and “split” inset didn’t match at side seam.

Pleat Neck Tee

Burda 6329

Rayon knit

1. Fun pattern-several options with sleeves.

2. Neck binding was supposed to be a knit bias binding, folds and all

3. Used a wrapped edge instead.

Waist Pleat Tee

Burda 6276

Rayon knit

1. Another fun knit tee with nice variations.

2. Placement of pleat a suggestion 🙂 may need to move up or down.

3. Interfaced neck facing per instructions-lost the stretch and clingier fit for a vee.

1. Just the bomb pants pattern-
