Ta Daaaaa! Gold Top with Rust Slacks.

Wow it's been a looooong time since I've been able to wear an outfit that I sewed out in public. Well, today, I wore this to work.

You have to look under my sewing label on the side bar to see the details about the pattern and the fabric. I have to review some other blogs before attempting to do a technical post.

We not gonna look at what the inside of these garments look like (the pants actually aren't that bad). But, here's what the outside of the outfit looks like. This picture sucks, and I'll try to get a better one later. But, you can see the basics, right?

Now, since I don't know which details are most important to display on a sewing post of a finished product, you have to tell me. Where should I zoom in?

Before and After the seat belt and 3 1/2 hour meeting. Pics Enlarge.

@Nik: You and me, we gone make some milestones next fiscal year, LOL. Hurry up and go get a slacks pattern!

@Sheila: Yes it does feel good. Can I call this couture?

@Adrienne: Thank you. Watching you and the other pros really made me want to finish this.

@Harlem Purl: Thank you, but I wish I would have known how much care it took to install some gathers. What a pain, but I love it too.
