Up date on my Tim Gunn wardrobe

A week has passed since I was last here. I started putting together my 'Tim Gunn' wardrobe.  After searching in my stash I found fabric for the trench coat and for the classic white shirt. Will get started on these soon.

This was a busy week for me so I did not get in much sewing. I did manage to make a blouse for myself.  This is made from lite blue stretch shantung.  Was easy to make and fits really well. It is McCalls 6286.

Took DH with me today to Hancocks (not his favorite thing to do), but since I am making him a shirt I thought it would be nice for him to pick out fabric he liked.  Not a smart move on my part.....We were in there about two minutes and he asked me where the men's department was.  He could not visualize any of this fabric turning into a man's shirt.  Hence I picked out some fabric but he's not sure he will wear it. (I'm sure he will).
While I was in Hancocks' I noticed that they just started to sell Burda patterns.  There were catalogs on the table and one of the sales ladies was stocking the draws.  I wanted to take a look at the catalog but DH asked if I could look at it when he was not there. Guess I will go back there later this week.

Be back soon.

  1. I like the way that shirt turned out.. For some reason I have always been intimidated to do a button u blouse... might be my fear of buttonholes... And I really do like Burda patterns. They seem to be a little more fashionable.BTW I stopped sewing for along time too.
