Well, I said I got on a sewing roll during the holidays, and I wasn’t kidding! My main goal for holiday sewing was to focus on separates: as much as I love sewing AND wearing dresses, they’re just never going to be as versatile as shirts, skirts and pants. And given I had some beautiful cotton I’d bought at the start of the year just begging to be sewn up, and patterns already in mind, there was nothing to do but get sewing!
First up were two patterns I’d worked with before – Butterick 6133, and the pencil skirt from Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing.This time, I had a beautiful white textured cotton from The Cloth Shop for my shirt, and another fantastic piece of vintage wool from my great-aunt for the skirt. And I’m pretty damn pleased with how they turned out!
