Sadly, sewing clothes for myself has dropped down the priority list lately. However, we all know that sewing is essential for mental well-being, so I put Wednesday aside just for me-sewing, picked an easy project, turned the computer off and got started. My plan was to sew up the new Vogue 8655. Go on, click on the link, because I think you could very easily overlook this pattern. It is just a tank top and elastic waist pants. Made up in the wrong fabric, it could look very, very ordinary. In the right fabric, it could look luxe resort.
I was sewing from stash. For the tunic, I chose a silk-rayon blend knit (at least, that's what I think it is). For the pants, I chose a mulberry coloured silk charmeuse. And that's where my plans came unstuck. I didn't have enough fabric for the pants and nothing else in the stash seemed quite right. So this post is not as exciting as I would have liked. Sorry I can't show you pattern complete (and sorry that I can't smile and use the camera timer at the same time). Here, I am wearing the top with my silk-linen pants.
