I've got 5 items of work clothing started and incomplete, and this list is in order of preference.
Work clothing UFOs
blue linen/rayon herringbone 1930s skirt - half cut out
Decades of Style 1930s matinee blouse - 80% sewn
aqua knit top - cut out
paisley self drafted pattern - 50% sewn
teal knit top - half sewn
I really need another couple of skirts at least and more tops ... I don't think that last one is going to be suitable. IE a bit lightweight on it's own and summer gets too hot+humid for me to wear camisoles as well as a top.
But I'll focus on finishing these this month and see what I can think up that's vintage inspired while still being professional work clothes.
Edited to add:
I've got 2 retro Butterick patterns that I'm going to make. 6700,for which I may use a knit fabric (a 3/4 sleeved version of the blue (no ruffles on my hips)
and 6701 with 3/4 sleeves again .... I'm looking forward to sewing something new.
