So here goes:
This was one of the thirty multi-size patterns (size 8-22) that was in the box! The patterns vary from the late 1970's to approximately 1984, along with some seasonal booklets showing variations in the basic patterns, plus a design book explaining how to slash and spread to adapt patterns. The illustrations in the booklets are all very '80s, but the styles can easily be adapted.
I have always liked cowl neck tops for summer and winter. I'm sure I have at least half a dozen recent handmades from this pattern, or a simlar pattern I already had in my stash.
This is another pattern that I like to use, which I bought for the speedy sewing: ten, twenty, thirty minute sewing. I like the idea of being able to use this pattern to make a variety of garments for a capsule wardrobe. This concept is very popular and certainly makes it possible to get the most out of your wardrobe.
I have made two versions of B, the shawl collar long-sleeved jacket, made from stretch knit jersey.
Everything I've made recently adds to my working wardrobe. Completing an inventory of recent handmades should force me to try to complete looks, so that I don't end up with too many stand alone garments that are difficult to mix and match.
