Donna Karan Suit- Update

Update
In the previous post I wrote regarding the Donna Karan Suit.
Below is a pic of my knockoff DK skirt. I still have some hemming to do and then the skirt will be completed. Spring has arrived here on the east coast and I want to sew spring and summer clothes. However one of my goals of 2012 was not to have UFO, so I am going to work on jacket slowly during the summer

Below is a picture of the almost completed skirt.



FYI- I have a bulging disc at the base of my neck. I am having physical therapy three times a week. I have two more weeks to go and it so painful. As you can imagine my sewing pace is very slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

I hope your neck feels better soon! I can't imagine that sewing is good for it at all. The skirt looks great and I'm looking forward to seeing the jacket!

Done Burda 6727- The Coat

Hello,
The Amazing Coat Sew Along- The Wearable Muslin I started this coat (wearable muslin) last year as part of the Amazing Coat Sew Along. In the end I got sick with the flu and was unable to meet the deadline. The coat was done, all that was left to do was to hem the coat, add snaps and large button. The alterations to the pattern was documented in my previous post about the coat. Thanks to my sewing sister I worked on the coat last weekend and completed it. I had to wait for my new photographer (daughter) because the hobby was fired. I did a forward thrust shoulder adjustment, and I did not rotate the sleeves cap. The folds in the sleeves were a result of not rotating the sleeves cap. the biceps need mores ease.The armholes were lowered, as you can see I need to adjust the armholes a bit more. This is a great pattern,  I will adjust the pattern because I am planning to make another coat in the near future. 
Even though the coat is a test garment (muslin) I am going to wear it until t…

Butterick 6419 and 5941

My DD attended a spring fling event on April 21. The color for the event was blue, anything blue. She asked me to sew a blouse in blue with a large bow at the neck and palazzo’s pant in silver.

I use my TNT pants (Butterick5941) made a muslin, extended the front crotch length and tweak the fit in the hips. I use the muslin as the pattern to cut the fashion fabric. The fabric took me out of my comfort zone, because of the appearance on the right side (liquid silver) , however, it was a knit and it sewed like butterrrrr. Next was the blouse; I did a muslin, there was minor adjustments in the back because of her narrow back and a swayback. I did not do a swayback adjustment in the muslin, instead I did the adjustment on the fashion fabric when I sewed the center back seam (I learned the technique in a class…
