Cutting Table : Grandma’s Nautical Look
Thanks to everyone who weighed in about my posting habits! So many nice compliments and suggestions. I’m glad you all are enjoying The Sew Weekly and will do my best to try to make this place interesting to visit.*
So without further ado, here’s a look at an upcoming outfit I’m planning — what I’m currently calling “Grandma’s Nautical Look.”
I love this picture of my grandmother. Not only because she actually is posing, but she’s got her trademark big smile, a smile which I definitely inherited. The outfit is practical and simple but just so smart. And the best part is that I have all the patterns already to make this little number.
Here’s a breakdown of the patterns I’m using as well as the fabric that I’ve purchased.
- 3 yards of brown and pink striped ribbed stretch knit fabric from Etsy for the shirt. The pattern is Simplicity 9365 from 1971.
- The jacket is Simplicity 4120 from the 1940s. I’m using brown linen from Fabric.com. Not sure about the buttons yet.
- The pants are already made. See this post. If I’m feeling adventurous I might make another pair.
