♫ ♪ A Lung

Idea for this project started after I recieved late birthday present from my friends – shirt collar brooches with Darth Vader and Stormtrooper.. I needed to make a dark side shirt..

For making this shirt I combined two Burda patterns and my ideas to get the shape I wanted.. The main thing was a classic collar.. I can never get enough of matching the fabric patterns and that’s why I wanted for my shirt to have a yoke and button placket.. The shirt has only bust darts.. There was not enough fabric for long sleeves, and that’s why I made a simple short ones.. Loose fit with this rayon fabric is perfect for spring/summer..

I needed to make a black skirt to wear with my dark side shirt.. I wanted to try pattern #104 from Burda 09/2014.. At start I was prepared to make changes to this pattern to get the look that I wanted.. After trying the original pattern, I decided to make a skirt yoke shorter.. In the end I shortened it for about 6 inches.. I finished the skirt and tried it on with the shirt and didn’t like how it looked on me.. The skirt was sitting on my hips, not at the waist.. I narrowed the yoke a lot to fit my waist.. Because of my last minute changes the skirt doesn’t look the best, but I still like it.. The fabric I used is black cotton with stretch.. For hemming the circle parts I used bias tape and hand stitching..
