Now with photos!

The camera had batteries, my photographer (kid brother, who really was cranky about being the photographer) was around, so, photos!

Outfit 2

This is outfit 2. The skirt, I've reviewed before, here. The top is Simplicity 4076. I've made this t-shirt before and reviewed it here. No updates to add, this is an easy, basic, and oh-so-wearable t-shirt that I will reach for again and again on my wardrobe.

Outfit 3

BWOF 03-2008-110 top, Simplicity 3962.

This top was the sleeveless version of BWOF's illustrated pattern of the month. Simple in construction, until you come to the center band, which was incomprehensible to me, with or without pictures. In the end, I looked at the pictures of the finished top in the magazine, Christina's review and muddled through. Also, I raised the neckline an inch after cutting, at the shoulder seam (since I forgot to do it before.)

Outfit 6

Same tops, the skirt is Simplicity 3631. This skirt! Sheesh. Honestly, this skirt had what, under 10 seams? I must have ripped each seam atleast once. There are some projects which feel jinxed from the start. This was one. End result. I still have a bit of ripping to do. I need to redo the lining, since the fabric I used was a bit thicker, and just feels really heavy for this skirt. So, got to fix that, but I will only at the end, once I finish the other items in the wardrobe, if I still have time.

So, status update, I'll get done, but barely.
