Last winter, I was taught how do make a lingerie slip in my Sewing Guild from a free online version called The Ruby Slip. I had to do a bust adjustment beyond what was the range in the pattern, but otherwise, put it together as shown. Well, I added trim and that flower pattern was purple and white shear on top of the shiny purple polyester seen in the rest of the garment.
It’s been a while since I’d done a fashion garment or accessories post so I want to let you all know that I name all the things I sew as a way to quickly reference them. Here, I have a tennis racquet cover and so to play on, both, a verbal and written pun of racket and racquet, I am calling this accessory LOUD. I am also putting a double meaning in LOUD for the visually “loud” design these racquet covers will be since I can choose any fabric I want in making them.
Quite the clever and funny name, I thought! 🙂
I’ve been meaning to learn how to do a few things for my garment construction development. One was to get a pattern and sew a hood. The other was to put grommets into garments for lacing on my own, as opposed to doing it with a vice like industrial strength tool. So what did I come up with for a project? A hoodie and bolero jacket combination for women.
