Now that I’ve finished my handbag entry, it’s time to start thinking seriously about the Mini-Wardrobe challenge–er, contest. My mind is pretty set on Option 3: 1 bottom, 1 dress or jumper (overdress), and 2 tops. I’ve also settled on fabrics, I think.
Ivory Linen, which will most likely be another pair of Almost Perfect Slacks.
Tan, open weave linen, which will be another McCall’s M5396 Jacket.
Ivory textured silk, blouseweight. I haven’t measure this one to be sure it’s enough for the pattern I have in mind: Simplicity 3918, view E.
(Updated photo) Cotton print that looks great with the tan linen. This will be a shirtdress, McCall’s M4769, View C.
If it turns out that there’s not enough of the Ivory silk for my blouse, it may change my plan to Option 1: 2 bottoms and 2 tops – 1 may be a jacket. Or I may find a different top pattern.
I’m making that tan jacket, one way or another.
