Summer SewingI thought I would share a pic of one of the outfits I made this summer. Yellow and brown are one of my favorite color combos (actually, I love brown with just about anything). The skirt is a 100% cotton pique from the Early Summer 2006 mailout. I used my TNT (tried and true) pattern pictured below.Everyone should have a basic skirt pattern that they can sew and go. The blouse is Vogue 7876 view C minus the drape across the front.

The fabric is a linen/rayon blend from the Summer 2005 mailout.

One of the alterations I always have to do on blouses (and so should anyone larger than a B cup) is a full bust alteration (FBA). Here is a picture of that.

This blouse is becoming one of my TNT patterns. There are lots of ways to change the style by adding collars, different sleeves or adding trim. I’ll post other versions of this blouse as I make them.
