Project Runway- Stanley Hudson vs Michael Lesniak.

First, I want to congratulate Michael Lesniak Project Runway season 11 winner.
Yes, in the past I wrote that I was done with project runway and I did not watch the show for almost two seasons until now. I watched season 11 mainly because Michael Kors was not on the show this season. Jack Posen was one of the judges and he was awesome. He explained the reason behind his decision to yeh or ney a contestant. I was rooting for Stanley Hudson because he was quiet, fierce.His creations were beautiful and his sewing skills were impeccable. In the end I don’t what went wrong with Stanley. He was one of the designers that went to Lincoln Center and he was not ready. He came back to NY with unfinished garments, one hot mess. My heart went out to Stanley, something happened to him he was not the same person when he came back for the finale. I totally agreed with the judges this time. There were right on point, Michelle Lesniak collection was beautiful and I can relate to what inspired her to create her final collection. Stanley was the favorite, he appeared to be unbeatable, in the end Michelle step up to the plate and won. Congratulation to Michelle Lesniak, you won and your collection was beautiful

Done Burda 6727- The Coat

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. She Choose Butterick 6419. I started with pant, the fabric was bought at Joann’s for 19.99/yd. Thank heavens for 50% coupon; I bought 3 yds. There is enough left over to make a blouse. 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…
