I’m finally catching up on blogging all of the makes from my fall sewing plans. This is the only dress of the bunch. It’s my second version of NewLook 6123. The first version was my dissertation proposal defense dress.
For the first time in years, I am not going back to school this fall! The fall planning vibes have still gotten to me, though, and I’ve got a whole list of projects that I want to tackle this season. They mostly center around building my business-casual work wardrobe, with an emphasis on separates.
It seems like it’s been a while since I’ve had a really successful make that wasn’t either a pattern I’ve made before or a Sewaholic pattern. But, this top has been a great success!
Since learning how to sew, I’ve become so picky with how my pants fit that I now only own two pairs of pants: these Ginger jeans and these crazy elastic-waisted Sadie pants. All of my other pairs of pants (both RTW and me-made–see failed Colette Clovers here) have been given away or trashed. With the arrival of fall, I decided that it was time to make a proper pair of pants for myself. Enter the North Point Trousers by Itch to Stitch.
