Entry #58


Second Outfit Entry

From Once Upon a Dollie


I wanted to really challenge myself, using patterns I had no experience with.
I didn't want to have to buy any more material than I already had on hand.
 I drafted the pattern for the hat, and the rest are from liberty Jane.
Here’s my inspiration for the outfit.


Here’s the sketch for my outfit, it’s a mix between country chic, and l
umber Jack (or is it lumber Jill?)



The outfit consists of six pieces, Dark blue skinny jeans, a white tank top, a blue/green plaid button up shirt with ¾ length sleeves, a pair of boots, a hat with ear flaps, and some black suspenders, (of which I forgot to take progress pictures.)

Here are all of the pieces laid out.

I started sewing in general, about five years ago; I am only recently learning professional methods.
Luckily when it comes to new techniques, patterns, etc., my little sisters and their friends are happy to except any/all of my Experiments. Practice pieces.
