Here's my Mini-Wardrobe Storyboard!


I Thought the title "Do the Math" was very clever, as this will be a back-to-school wardrobe for this high school math teacher! (Get it... Do the Math... 2 + 2 makes 4 outfits... ) I know, I know... stick to the day job! Aside from Dawn and Angie, any other teachers that love to sew out there???
Pardon the mess called the storyboard. It's my first time, and it took most of the day. I wish it looked like this, but I guess that gives me something to strive for! I'm so proud of myself that aside from a little thread and maybe a zipper, I own all the materials involved! I wish I could earn bonus points for that...
I was afraid it was a little boring (black, khaki, ivory), but these pieces will be wardrobe staples, and go with so much that I couldn't deny it. And... the skirt option I was considering (BWOF 06-2008-122) is already in 2 other storyboards, so I felt this would be better.
So, this storyboard means I have 1 pattern left to cut (paper, not fabric... I know the rules!), and 2 fabrics to pre-wash.
In the mean time, I'm still going to make the skirt I mentioned above, and a coordinating blouse, if I can tear myself away from the computer long enough... My name is Kristine and I'm addicted to reading sewing blogs.

Wow, you crazy-woman. Two Burdas? You rock.

No, don't doubt yourself--the colors you picked are classics and always chic.

Oh, I think it looks great!! I love your colors and your pattern choices. I've made that butterick top. I had to give it away to a less endowed friend, LOL. So if you normally need a FBA in a woven, consider adding one to this knit top. I didn't (thinking it was a knit & wouldn't matter) and was sorry! It really goes together easy though and is c-u-t-e when finished!

I like your choices! Basics that I would definitely wear when I use to teach!

Very, very cute and certainly not my math teacher! (Think coffee, tuna breath, and "all the evens on pages...")

How do you like using Burdas? I'm still waaaaaay to intimidated.
