A working girl’s day never seems to end, not for Megan, not for me.
We work in the same office and wear the same uniform (several colour ranges to choose from, though – very liberal). Thing is, they deduct the cost from our salary, so I made my own instead. STICK IT TO THE MAN.
I covered the draping of this make here and the construction here as my tale is too long for one post – why not pop over?
This is me hard at work in the office (click first image for carousel and captions):
This is me hard at work sewing my uniform (again, click first image for carousel and captions):
Thank goodness I’m behind a desk, so the boss can’t see I haven’t finished the skirt (=started on it yet)! My plan is to sew a Hollyburn skirt (my red one here) in the same mustard fabric and wear as faux dress, or separately, as it might get a LITTLE too mustardy… especially as it doesn’t even come with a lovely hot dog.
Here’s a GREAT trick: I cut the sleeves on the bias for extra movement so I can reach lever arch files on the top shelf and just for general movement. Turned out SUPER! But dang – I forgot to remove some ease and lose some pouffy-ness. Next time.
After all that work AND I got also all the filing done, it’s drink o’clock, don’t you agree?
(OMG did I see Megan disappear somewhere with… DON?!)
Thank you SO SO much, Julia Bobbin, for hosting this cracking challenge. When Harry is old enough to go to school, why don’t you come and work with Megan and me?
Fabulous shirt! Great work! 🙂
Thank you very much, Cherise!
What a wonderful work! Amazing, what you did! I hope to see the skirt soon! Will put you on my reading list! Greetings from Germany!
Skirt will come, I promise! Thank you for the motivation, and for putting me on your reading list!
The result ist very beautiful !!
So glad you like it, Jeanne, it means a lot!
This is some amazing stitching! It looks terrific. Love the colour, the lines, the cutting – – everything. Congratulations on an amazing make.
You’ve made my day – thank you!
