Design a outfit for the Marie Clare Woman: Intelligent, Practical, Fashion Forward & Sexy
30 minutes to sketch
$150 fabric budget
30 minutes to shop
Full day of sewing time
I changed things a bit to fit my world. I did all of the above, changing the budget to $75 (we are broke ya’ll) and confined my “One day of sewing time” to 12 hours.
The final result, a vest and dress turned out great, and I plan on making another one of these vests for me! I can’t wait till it gets cold outside!
The vest is made from Wool and the dress is made from Lyocell. I also added some sequins to the dress for some added pop!
