Crazy days around here lately as well as waves of illness passing through so I am trying to get back in the saddle.
The weather has been extremely uncooperative as of late so as we all know, a blog must have pictures. I set up the portable studio indoors today and took a few so I could get caught up on my sewing posts before we start rolling out the gardening stuff for spring.
In the course of #memademarch a few garments really stood out as workhorses in my closet. Of them, the True Bias Sutton blouse is my favorite. Even though it’s a fairly quick sew it has these little details that sets it apart from basic shells or woven tees.
This one is in a silky polyester that was the very devil to sew. I redid the neckline twice because it was so wonky.
Its white with grey and peach flowers so it goes with almost every bottom I own. Yes, most of my clothes are neutrals but hey, it works.
The V neck is done in such a way that even a beginner can knock it out with very few headaches. The directions were very easy to follow and made sense in the order they were presented.
I am by no means a size 6 and I have to say the sizing for a 14/16 was spot on. I wasn’t sure how this would play on a curvy girl but it totally rocks.The slit bottom with a slightly lower back is very flattering.
Changing up the fabrics can make it workplace lovely as well as summer BBQ appropriate.
This summery rayon works with denim or capris for a cute casual look. My number one criteria for a top is it must look good with jeans, whether its a denim skirt or skinnies.
I am a die hard Colette fan especially since they came out with Seamwork magazine last year but I have to say, I will be trying out a few more True Bias patterns. Both the Hudson pant and Southport dress look like items I would wear a lot.
Go check it out, you may find yourself a new tried and true.
