First 3 Pac for SWAP 2014!

As I mentioned in my last post, my wool skirt is finished and I now have all 3 pieces for my first 3-pac for SWAP 2014; a skirt, blouse and jacket!

This is my TNT skirt pattern and the fabric is a very fine light brown wool which was gifted to me by a wonderful sewing buddy who decided it needed to go to a home where it would be used!

There is not a lot to say about this skirt, it has been made exactly how I make all my skirts –

Waist finished with twill tape and edge stitched.
Hong Kong finish on vent, mitred corner, slip stitched hem and lace on lining

and the complete 3 Pac!!

I have made a toile of Marfy 1913 blouse and will show that as soon as I wash the gelatine out of it.

2014 Stash Out: 2.4 m
2014 Stash In:  19.25 m

  1. I missed this post – it's so lovely to see inside your garments – a little bit extra really does make a world of difference, and does not really take much more time. Remember the days when everyone used to look inside garments to check they looked good? Even in RTW?


  2. Sharon, I am constantly impressed with the quality of your sewing and the beautiful fit that you get with your garments. You are definitely someone that I look up to in the sewing world – especially as a short woman. Love your style – you always look so at ease in your garments.


  3. Sharon, the elements of your 3 piece ensemble are perfect together. As I went back and read the details of the blouse and jacket, it became clear that your plans for a couture-level outfit have been realized. I'm still amazed that you were able to locate just the most perfect trim for your jacket, and echo that same color in the skirt. That outfit was simply meant to be. Congratulations!
