Made by a Fabricista: Work Wear

One of the item I make least is work wear.  I work in a pretty casual environment and have the ability to dress up and down with ease.  Over the past couple of months I have been collecting suiting and wool with the anticipation of making some great separates specifically for the office.

The fabric used for this project is 100% wool (great for these cold days) beige/blue/multi colored suiting with a very faint plaid design found (HERE).  This fabric can be found in the as is section at a great deal for the quality.

I  love to be chic everywhere I go, but I often fall short at the office out of sheer laziness.  There are so many projects I have this year as I approach my 36th birthday to spruce up my image.

This week's garment was constructed using McCalls M6901  with the following modifications:  Pockets omitted, legs widened by 2 inches from the hip down, and an invisible zipper on the left side.

The Top was constructed using Vogue V9075 bodice with the following modifications:
Lining omitted and replaced with facing on the front and back necklines, Sleeve lengthened into a full sleeve, and 2 6-8 inch wide peplum created by using the circle skirt and slash and spread method with a longer tail in the back.

I love this look and feel like it has me written all over it.  I wore it today to work after being out sick for several days.  Because I work in a heavily casual environment, I was complemented all the way into the door and to my office :).

Happy Sewing
