Have you seen the amount of research Tempest has put into the David Bowie Sewalong slated for the month of March? Impressive. As I encouraged dear Tempest in this little endeavor, I sincerely hope I haven't been overly unrealistic about being able to complete my natty suit. The jacket and pants are raising my game-- tailoring and a front fly are not part of my repertoire.
I'm using Butterick 4610 for the jacket plus welt pockets, bound buttonhole, and fusible tailoring techniques from Gretchen Hirsch's Craftsy course, The Starlet Suit Jacket, now discontinued I believe. Sewaholic Thurlow for the
pants, Gertie's Portrait Blouse for the shell. At least the shell
pattern looks easy enough, but I've never made it before. So yeah, three garments done by the time I hit the road with Fenna for a grandparental visit March 22. We shall see.
Looking pretty good, right? It seems a bit wrinkly in the back, but I can't identify what alterations would be needed. Please weigh in if you know more than I do (likely). Xo.
