“Thread and Needles”, a French sewing community, has recently launched a contest whose purpose was to sew two pieces of clothing that would be wearable both together and separately. The deep blue jacket and striped dress with Peter Pan collar are my entries.
The blue jacket is McCall’s M5531, view B (no alterations to the pattern).
The striped dress is Sewaholic Pattern’s Renfrew Top, view C with quite a lot of alterations (to make it into the dress I wanted, not because it actually needed those).
Go far afield in this collection of bib dresses, waistcoats, and wool jackets in textured fall fabri
