Going Green :)

patricej green and white collection 2009

The pants were so easy. 2 pieces, a waist stay (I used grosgrain ribbon), and a zipper.

The wrap shirt *eyeroll* took forever to make. I promise patterns with 4 pieces always give me the blues. Lol
The pattern called for a knit, I used a stretch poplin. Had to do a fba. Finally got the shirt together and for the life of me could NOT get the snaps that close the shirt to line up. I have made wrap shirt before, but they all were full wrap shirts meaning the tie was what held the shirt closed. I won’t make this one again. The shirt has kelly green and navy pin stripes.

The dress was easy and is flattering on me 🙂 AND I didn’t have to make any adjustments! Whoo lol

That’s 4 of the 11 pieces I sewed this weekend 🙂
