I also timed the sewing. From picking up the prewashed fabric off the shelf, to putting the last stitch in the skirt, was two hours and twenty minutes. McCall's 6654 is a really simple skirt to make.
I realized that my "replace jeans" scheme should include something to wear when I've been too lazy to press shirts--because woven home-sewn shirts almost always need pressing. So I'm adding a black tee as a part of the scheme.
And this wipes out the difference between the more and less ambitious versions, leaving me with (boldface items are complete):
- Purchased black long-sleeved tee.
- Early Bird indigo silk/linen jacket.
- Pale grey knit skirt.
- Dark grey knit skirt.
- Black knit skirt
- Darkish green knit skirt.
- Jacket two
- Jacket three.
- Shirt one
- Shirt two
- Shirt three
