What a great idea this is - to join together and blog about the garments we sew to build our own "sewn by me" wardrobe.
Thanks to Vita and Natalea for this invitation.
I have just finished my first 2 garments for this challenge. They go together as a suit. I have been sewing for about a year and a half now and slowly getting my skills up to where I am proud to go out in public with my sewn by me clothes so this challenge is really timely for me.
My first item is the StyleArc Marni Jacket. My inexperience in sewing can be seen on this post - with all the trials and tribulations of trying to put a sleeve on a jacket.
This is a great pattern and I would recommend it. It is recommended for a Ponte Knit which is what I have used.
The second item is the dress I am wearing with the jacket. It is fast becoming a TNT for me. It is easy to whip up and I am getting the fit right. It is McCalls 2401. It is a sheath dress - however my alterations have made it more of a shift.
Here is the suit together.
