Choir Wardrobe 7.23.17
And the photographer was in a hurry. Can you tell? :-)
This is a Jalie 2566 Tshirt in a nice,firm cotton/lycra jersey, cut out and sewn up in the last couple of days. I have two sizes traced off...one for loose floppy knits that seem to grow and one two sizes larger for firmer, stable knits. This was the larger size.
Modified Loes Hinse Oxfords...basically, I just shaped the legs into a more bootcut style, which I like very much.
Purchased lacey vest.
I have one more top cut out to the neckline binding (the fabric is jacquard silk charmeuse and the binding is cut on the bias; I was working on it late at night and decided for the best chance of accurate cutting I'd wait till a better, more alert time. Which hasn't come yet). It might or might not get worn next week; after I pulled it out and compared it to the rest of my turquoise, it almost looks jade green. Except, of course, when I put it next to something green.
I don't know yet what the August colors are. But it doesn't matter much as I will be tied up in other stuff and will only actually be in choir one Sunday in August. I can probably wing it with the existing wardrobe, whatever it turns out to be. I'm likely going to have to sew some stuff for September if my hunch on that is correct.
I'm missing my sewing time. I really need to get into the sewing room.
