Fearless February one down - Newlook 6130

There is nothing to this pattern  because it's been made more than 2 times, one being here, but I usually like to start a new challenge with something easy before I move up gradually to my goal. My plan for the fearless February is to make some improvement in my sewing skill.  Here is my list of things I have in mind for the challenge( in no particular order) but mostly depend on my mood
Hope am not being over ambitious, but let's wait and see .
  1. A jacket ( With some details, must include lining, and fit to my satisfaction)
  2. A LBD ( Must be fully lined and fit to my satisfaction)
  3. A pant (This is going to be my major challenge )
  4. Two Tops (Not just easy tunics)
  5. A skirt (Let's see how it goes, must be lined)
Now to Newlook 6130, the only alterarion I did this time around was
1. Lowered the neck
2. Interfaced the neck, and the arm-holes for stability, and;
3. Added lining .Yes I used the bagging method, it's so easy to do and am becoming more comfortable with the technique and  plan to use it more.
I love the lining fabric so much, some kind of knit fabric from fabricland and the shell fabric was the reminant (ponte knit) from my previous project.

    Good luck with your projects. I've got pretty much the same goal of perfecting my skills. In addition, I want to use something I learn from videos, magazine articles, etc.
