The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

For this week's challenge I really didn't go towards a fashion designer. I wanted to focus on the unique underground movement that is taking place here. Individuals making their own labels out of materials made right here. It's the slow clothing movement. My inspiration was pulled from Alabama Chanin, Emerson Made, Imogene + Willie and Sarai Mitnick the brilliance behind Colette.

This shirt is inspired by my favorite pattern Sorbetto! Surprise, surprise but with a twist. The fabric is cut on a bias, I completely overhauled the pattern to accommodate the stretchiness of the fabric and my long body.

That color really suits you. Do you remember how much fabric it took with the added length an everything cut on bias?

From the back top center down to the hem it's roughly 29". My best guess would be about 7" or 8" added to the length.

love the little gather at CF instead of the pleat. Looks great. Well done dying as well!

What beautiful work! The color of the blouse and vaporous cut fabric to bias binding make a fabulous garment.
