So, this would be my new favorite shirt. I'm trying not to wear it all the time.
I have several stash fabrics earmarked for more versions. For this seersucker plaid, I drove all the way to the mega-warehouse and went to some strenuous effort pulling the bolt out from the stack at the fabric warehouse. Actually, "pulling out" doesn't work, even though I try. It's more like taking each bolt out, one by one, until I get to "my" bolt conveniently located near the bottom. I will say, though, I'm grateful to have the huge selection, however overwhelming.
Back to the shirt .... It's the classic shirt-blouse, but with some nice shaping to it. I had a previous "go-to" shirt blouse (Ottobre 5-2009-4), but I like this one much better with the longer, curved hem, shaped side seams, shoulder darts, and pockets. For reference, this one is "Gardener Blouse", Ottobre 5-2012-7).
Oh, the front bodice is supposed to be in two panels with different fabrics. I went rogue and did all one fabric. Ooooh.
This is my 3rd iteration of the jeans, this time with a floral pocket design. There's not much to say about them except I like the pattern enough to keep making it (Ottobre 5-2007-10). Maybe someday I'll get bored or happen to run into a fit I like better.
I did hem them quite long. It looks almost silly now but, never fail, my jeans get shorter and shorter and shorter. And then they do look silly.
Look, the facing matches my shirt!
