Office Collection: Part 2

Today's sewing resulted in a heavy grey ponte knit skirt.  I used my TNT a line knit pattern. It has the facing built in. Sew one side, the other, hem and done. 

The shirt is Simplicity 2618.  The shirt will be a layering piece, I probably won't wear the two together.

This woven blouse took more time. I drafted the pattern from a favourite ready to wear top from Banana Republic. It is basically a square dartless shirt block, spread for pleats at the waist.  Back shape is given via the tie. I used a polyester satin.  The neck, arms and hem are done with my coverstitch.

No, my pants aren't hemmed yet.

I've never looked at that Simplicity patterm before. Amazing how they look made up as opposed to a pattern envelope. Very nice!
