Let me first say that I have NEVER EVER EVER EVER sewn before in my ENTIRE life. My mom got a new sewing machine a few years ago. I got her old Singer in the deal. I put it in the basement and didn't touch it. I didn't know what to do with it. This challenge inspired me. I bought my supplies, whipped out the machine and thought I was going to breeze through this. HAHAHAHAHA I broke a needle trying to wind the bobbin. SO, off to mom's for beginner's sewing 101 (or how to wind a bobbin without going through my entire supply of needles).

3 days later I have an outfit! WOO HOO!!!

Here's what I started with:

And here's my finished project - my take on men's dressy attire!

And here I am modeling it! I hope this pics are OK - my 6 year old took them for me!!!

I know its not perfect but I'm not too disappointed in my first attempt at sewing.
Thanks for this challenge - it got me motivated to finally try my hand at this!!! Grin

Great first sewing effort.  The outfit  is really fun.  From IndividualFrog's entry I learned about Jun Takahashi, your work has a bit of the tie style Jun shows in his winter 2005 collection.   Way to Go!!!  Your ideas float with the high end.  Not bad at all for a first time design.  Kudos to the 6yo photographer and many thanks for sharing your work.

Thanks. I think I surprised myself with the skirt.
The shirt didn't turn out exactly like I wanted. I ripped the seams out of it so many times I lost count.

very cute! thanks for sharing. It gives me great ideas for a western shirt that doesn't fit me but I don't want to part with it, either.

what a great job for your first effort! Several of my first efforts ended up in the trash or as rags for a rug!! Be proud of it!!

I really like how the ties look like a bustle almost.... I may borrow that inspiration with all the ones I' have kicking around the house!

I'm a sewer, and artist, and generally all-around creative person with more fabric in my stash than I know what to do with!

This is fantastic! I  LOVE the vamp detail on the back of your skirt - this is incredible for a first-time sewer - keep on sewing!!  Cheesy
