Summer's really over. In the past week my daughter had a tonsillectomy, my husband had emergency surgery to remove his gal bladder, my 6-year-old son was sent to the Principal's office (the second day of school) to discuss what scissors are used for (as in NOT cutting your hair!), and school started for me too. I'm currently enjoying what will surely be one of the few quite afternoons on my lovely porch that are left.
Here's the result of my little wardrobe challenge (the plan, anyway) using Butterick 5258. If you click to enlarge the picture, I've written a key to the pieces that match the pattern envelope.
As part of the challenge I wanted to reproduce the exact garments on the envelope just as the designers had put them together. But as I realized once I got the pattern, the skirt and pants don't have pockets. So, with the black pieces I will add side seam pockets. The purple set I'm going use a different pattern, at least for the pants. Wow. That looks awfully ambitious, hmmmm...
Time to break the peacefulness and go announce to my little girl that we really and truly are not going to the air show today. It's tough to be tough.
Happy sewing to those of you that are actually doing some!
