The "Palette" Ensemble

    Newer Older

    The Facts
    Fabric | Black Stretch Cotton Twill $3.98 a yard and Silk Blend Cotton Lawn $9.98 a yard, from Fabric.com
    Patterns | Butterick 3530 (Sorry, Vicki!!!) and Grainline's Tiny Pocket Tank
    Year | 1960s and 2011
    Notions | Thread and a zipper.
    Time to complete | About 4 or so. I spent much more time fretting over fabric choices and starting projects (a skirt, the bra top from B3530 and this dress that I cut out last week) that didn't work out.
    Wear again? | Yes! I really want to make more pants, so these shorts were my wearable muslin to see if they would fit, and they do! I like the top, but it's very delicate so I'm not sure how well its exposed serged seams will hold up.
    Total price | About $25 if you count take into account the fact that I wasted the additional yardage of both fabrics on previous projects.
