Sorry, here’s another bad picture of me.
The pattern I used for this blouse was New Look 6598, an old favorite. The fabric is just a cheap cotton I found at Walmart. I think they consider it a “quilting cotton” but it’s more lightweight than what I typically think of as quilting cotton. I love this mustardy yellow color and the simple, sort of vintagey print. The color is more accurate in this close-up.
The gray pants are relatively new, a medium-lightweight stretch cotton twill. Now that I see the picture I wish I’d ironed them and left my phone out of my pocket. Oh well, this is the real me – wrinkled and bulgey.
I’m currently working on a dress. It’s almost finished but when I tried it on I discovered that the pockets are ALL WRONG and I have to take them off and re-position them. #@%$&!
