8 Gored Skirts
I have 5 meters of rayon (1m each type) and I am going to make 5 of these 8 gored skirts from a 1940's advance pattern 3287.
I have made this skirt 3 times before and am close to perfecting the fit but the pattern is just lovely - especially in the soft floaty fall of this rayon ($4/m). I used a lot of rayon to make skirts to travel around Italy with due to the not needing to iron and fell in love. Actually I already have one in the same pattern as the orange floral but red.
Hopefully I will be able to process line these and will therefore have all of them done saturday night. Which reminds me I had better call into spotlight for zips and buttons.
Sorry the pic for this is a little smaller but the square allowed a better view of the fabric that I picked up of Ebay. total cost was about $50 for 3m including all postage. To be honest the fabric photographs better than it looks in person but I still really like it. I don't have anything else like it that's for sure.
Whether I manage this as part of this Blitzkrieg or not is questionable because I am unsure if I have enough material to do it, and because I need to find a green to accent it with if I don't. It may also be put in the when I have lost a little weight pile. Dropping a size could cut .5m off what I need by this pattern, now there is weight loss incentive.
Childs Play Clothes
All around me friends are having babies, recently some are even having girls which means I can make cool things for them. This one has been on the to do list ever since we got back from Italy and being so small I doubt it will take too much time so I am including it in this blitz.
Pattern is an old one, 1960's by my mothers guess and of a mail order variety so I am not certain of the company but I think its really cute (size 2 but kids do grow right)
The material is quilters cotton picked up on sale probably about $6 for the pattern and $5 for the plain. I will do the top patterned and the pants plain.
So there it is 3 projects (well 7 really) and more to come. I figure if I put the info up here I will remember what material goes with what pattern which should be useful in clearing things out.
