Fall Sewing

I (Sis) made a couple of things for fall wearings!

First up:  Butterick 5473 in a stretch cotton from Marcy Tilton.

I shortened it by about 7 inches, so that it hits at lower-thigh; perfect for wearing with a narrow pencil skirt or leggings

We're calling it "Lambs to the Slaughter"  It's a perfect piece for the Day of the Dead wardrobe.

Also, a long sleeved cotton knit tshirt, McCalls 7018 in a burnt orange cotton knit that's been around so long I've forgotten where it came from. Maybe Fabric Depot in Portland?  I lengthened it by 2 inches and will lengthen it by 3 the next time around.  I also interfaced the front makes no sense to me NOT to do that when there are buttons/holes. Jeez McCalls.   The fabric rolled like crazy when cut which was annoying, but other than that, a pretty easy sew.  "Bittersweet" is the name of this one.

Hedy modelling the new clothes on the front walk-way
Lambs. Unknowing Lambs
Square buttons from Nancy's Sewing Basket.

I really like the yoke in the back.

Not the best pic...the jacket looks a little boxy, but it has a nice swingy movement.
Dead things and crows...the perfect accessories.
