My Friday / Saturday sewing? I know ya'll we're just dying to see it ;-)
Here it is:
I don't really consider that I have much of 'a style', but if I do,
this is it.
Fitted knit top, mostly plain, but with a little something special,
and a comfy skirt,
cute, but comfortable, footwear.
I guess you could say, comfort is my style ;-)
made up in a dreamy fabric (either this or this - I think the bamboo) purchased on sale from Michael Levine,
is made from the bodice of my tweaked and re-tweaked Lady Skater dress pattern,
(that I still haven't managed to get to fit just right in the shoulder/underarm area - or blog about...)
lengthened, and then widened at the hips,
with a sweet little bustle added.
The sleeve length was determined entirely
by the fact that I only had 1 yard of fabric,
but I quite like it.
Long enough for warmth, but not so long that they get in the way when I wash dishes.
is a fun knit print - also purchased from Michael Levine,
made from my Alabama Chanin pattern, but sewn entirely by machine.
I underlined it, because the fabric was super thin.
To keep my fabrics together, I used my trusty basting spray
which worked fabulously!
(but was a little trickier than basting a quilt, since both fabrics were slickery)
I did 3 rows of stitching on the neckline and hems, for added interest.
|I love my bracelet from Rahab's Robe!|
And here, let me show you the hem on my skirt...
You can't see it - it's a blind hem.
har har har :-)
There you have it.
My comfy, signature style.
