Fashion Sewing Club February 2020

Debbie’s Garments:

New Look 6469

Navy Swing Dress/Tunic

New Look 6469, View C

Rayon Ponte blend

1. Shortened between shoulder and bust on front, back and sleeve. Did not shorten overall length.

2. Omitted zipper and changed order of construction-sleeves to front and back then side seams.

3. Easy, quick, fun and I like the fit.

Purple Color Block Dress/Tunic

New Look 6439

New Look 6439, View D with Scoop Neck

Rayon Ponte blend

1. Front and back are on fold – to achieve blocking, I added seam allowance to front and back at fold. Left front, back and sleeve are opposite colors from the right front, back and sleeve.

2. The neckband was omitted and the neck edge is turned under and cover stitched.

3. I have made this pattern at least 3 times and it is a winner.

New Look 6394

Deep Coral Botanical Print Blouse

New Look 6394, View C

Liberty of London 100% Cotton

1. Shortened between shoulder and bust on front, back yoke and sleeve and also one inch between waist and hip on front an back. 

2. Pattern had sew on front facings – I changed to fold over to eliminate bulk. The yoke is single layer so I added yoke lining with burrito technique. This got me into a little trouble with facing so I improvised as best as I could to attach front facing to shoulder area.

3. French seams were used as often as possible as well as a bit of serging.

4. This is an easy pattern that lets the fabric stand out – exactly what I wanted.

Sewaholic Granville

Light Coral Small Print Shirt

Sewaholic 1501 Granville Fitted Shirt

100% Cotton

The fit of my shirt – princess seaming in back, shaped hem are definitely true to the Granville, however, I often combine construction techniques from Kwik Sew 3555, Nancy Zieman, Pam Howard  and other resources to create my favorite shirt.  

Kristin’s Garments

Vogue 1648

Julio Cesar Fleece Jacket

Vogue 1648

Polar fleece, activewear knit

1. Omitted back pleat because of thick fabric.

2. Kept a center back seam for shaping at neck.

3. Nice fit but maybe a bit close if using a non stretch woven as pattern calls for.

4. Omitted lining.

Turtleneck

Vogue 9337

Vogue 9337

Activewear knit

1. Pattern has a half neck piece for front of turtleneck-maybe to give better shoulder neck shaping?

2. Turtleneck isn’t meant to be turned down-one layer, hemmed at top.

3. Turtleneck is close fitting and long.

Leggings

Jalie Clara High Waisted Leggings #3887

Activewear knit

1. Center front seam is on fold and pattern has a gusset.

2. Easy to assemble. Near perfect fit. Made the version without waistband.

3. Only took in at knee-otherwise leg fit snugly.

One More Vogue Jacket

Vogue 1642

Polar fleece, activewear knit

1. Chose the longer version, View B.

2. Eliminated zip in collar.

3. Very large through shoulders and bust and then tapers to hem.

4. Collar opening too wide.

5. Sleeves are wide.

6. Pattern calls for zips in side seams, I just did slits.
