After feeling like I need to get back to sewing I decided to trawl sewingpatterns.com for some inspiration – the $2.99 butterick patterns didn’t hurt either! I ended up ordering the following:
I love the different variations with these skirts – I can see myself wearing any of these styles, and they would be perfect for work.
A-line and full skirts are always so flattering – again all of these would be perfect for work.
I love the dress and cropped jacket from this pattern.
I am a sucker for anything high-waisted – I love the jacket and pant combination.
High-wasited skirts – perfect for work once again. I love the detailing on the skirt on the right.
I find waistcoats smarten up most work outfits, so this pattern should come in handy.
Both dresses are the perfect shape for a work dress.
Now we just need to wait and see if any of these make themselves to the final product!
