Sewing: Burda Sew Along Pants and Blouse

I would love to tell you that I have sewed up a storm for the Sew Along, truth is that I have had the last 3 weekends in May away from home so I have done almost nothing.
I did start a pair of pants in April which were from Burda Magazine 11/2012 107C. Thankfully these are now finished but the weather has been crappy this weekend so I have no good photos to show just yet. Anyway here is a sneak peak of my faux welt pocket which I am super proud for conquering. 

 I did also manage to start cutting out Burda 7188 which is a paper pattern, this one was on my planned list which you can see here. One of my wardrobe holes are tunics or shirts (who knows what the correct name is!), something that is of a nice enough fabric that can be worn during the day or dressed up for something more fancy. 

The fabric I am using is some poly rayon mystery fabric which came from Spotlight ages ago. It is sort of a zebra stripe with a border print on it, I am hoping it will be a wearable muslin. Here's hoping!
My sewing these days is all about getting maximum wear out of everything, it may not be as flashy or challenging as a cute little cocktail frock but the reality is that I don't have the occasion to wear these things. I want to be able to show things off that I have made and if that's by making the everyday kind of knit tops, shirts and casual pants then that's the way it has to be.
