My “Finished” Wardrobe!

November 30, 2009

Woohoo!  I finally finished (mostly). :)  I’m love almost everything about this wardrobe.  It has a few faults, sure, but I’m so excited for it.  So, here is all of the information I can give you…

Finished pictures can be found in my flickr photo album.

My pattern review for the whole wardrobe is here.

Here is my collage, and I plan to make another one also to stick in my review that is a little simpler with close-ups of each item separately.  Just to ease the viewing a bit. Click to view a larger size.

I have a couple things left to do, before I can actually say I’m finished.  The three big ones are: lining the jacket, finishing the sleeve hem on the kiwi-colored shirt, and buttonholes on the khaki pants (I tried but couldn’t get them to work the other day).

    Fantastic! This was a lot of work. I’ve been thinking of renewing my wardrobe in a similar way but I never find the time.

    Dear fellow seamstresses,

    I’ve been following this great blog for a while but never dared to comment. I’m so sorry that the first time I write here has to be to ask for help!

    I need a FREE sewing pattern to Make a cowl neck sweater (like
    THIS ONE
    ). I have a fancy dress (costume) party on Saturday 12 December 2009. I must go dressed as Velma from Scooby Doo.

    Unfortunately orange is not in fashion this year and I can’t find an orange cowl neck sweater in shops.

    I’ve thought of finding some orange fabric and sewing this sweater myself, but I don’t want to spend money on a pattern (I never wear cowl neck sweaters). But I can’t find any on the web and I’m running out of time, the party is on Saturday and I’m a beginner at sewing so it will take me long to sew it!

    If anyone could help me with this, I would be grateful forever (and join his/her blog, of course!)

    I’m sorry if this cry for help bothered anyone, normally I don’t do this, but I’m desperate now.

    Thank you for brightening up my days with your contributions to the sewing blogosphere!

    Greetings, Rebeca

    Good work! Actually, just the fact that you managed to finish that many garments in a matter of ere months, is enough to earn my complete admiration. But every piece looks really great on you.
