As for the details of the look I created for Natalie….
For the dress, I used the basic bodice from Volume One, shortened it, added 3/4 sleeves (don’t forget to download the free sleeve pattern to go with Volume One), added a longer skirt with a hi-low hem, and I sewed it all up in a pretty floral Ponte knit from Girl Charlee.
The cropped jacket is Look 7 from Volume Two. I just extended the shoulder into a back yoke, added some scoop shaped pockets to the front, a small, rounded collar, and added snaps. I sewed it up in gray wool from Jo-Ann and some leather from the Leather Hide Store which I had in my stash.
Every time I read STYLO I am always left feeling inspired to sew more, to try new things, and to push creative boundaries.
I can’t gush about it enough!
