I made this blouse, which is BWOF 02-10-114 from a wonderful cotton I bought in Tweed Heads. My dilemma is whether to use white or red buttons. Black I've already dismissed as too boring. I hope you can actually see them as these photos are out of focus. This is a lovely pattern and has a long version, too, which I think is 113. I omitted the large, turn back cuffs, but I'm considering making a long version in red. The long version also has oversized collar and stand, which looks fun. This stand is square, too, which is way more easy than the usual curved one.
I can't decide on red or white buttons, so I'm keen to hear your opinion. I'm leaning towards red because it takes away the preppy feel, in my opinion.
Here's also a bad shot of my label, which I made in red for this one because it felt like fun.
This skirt is BWOF 02-10-104. I made the shorter version with a piece of wool that came from the Vera Wang collection on Fabric.com. I know a lot of people expressed disappointment with the quality of some fabric, but this wool is lovely. It's quite fine and even a little see through so I lined it. It has 1% lycra, too, so it will be comfortable. Sadly, as Vera and I begin to look less and less like each other, this skirt looks daggy on her. You can't tell from this shot, but there are angled pockets at the hips.
This is a shot of the inside. I used the cotton from the blouse to face the band as well as make the pocket bags.
Two more additions to the travel wardrobe. Now that I'm almost finished my assignment, there will be more time for sewing!
