Apart from getting a bit derailed by the fur coat I am mostly managing to stick to the plan I posted here. I am adding in one extra piece so that I can make a mini collection of 2 tops, a skirt and pants.
The skirt you have seen in my previous post. The other pieces in this collection are;
Pants - Hot Patterns Razor Sharp Pants in a darker grey wool. These are well on the way although let me tell you the faced fly front took me an age to figure out. I am going to write a separate post with instructions and step by step photos so I never have to figure them out again.
Top 1 - McCalls 5977 in a grey, pink poly print. This is also partly completed although I hit a problem with the sleeves. The pattern piece for the sleeves on View D are essentially an oval ring doughnut shape and they just don't hang very well in my fabric. So I have purchased a yard of grey chiffon and will do some kind of draped sleeve / neck embellishment. Still figuring that out, I think I will do some web research for inspiration. You can see the original, stiff sleeve basted on below and the grey fabric just thrown on top for now.
Top 2 - This was not in my original plan but I really want to use this textured pale pink chiffon for a top, the fabric is just draped on my dressform here. Not sure of a pattern yet but it will be something very simple with few pattern pieces.
