Long time no see everyone! This week classes and finals ended .. and then I got sick. Bleh. So in part celebration and loopiness I decided to sew like a madwoman. I made a skirt and a blouse!
The first item was a gathered skirt in a burgundy red fabric; got three yards of it for three dollars at a clearance bin in a fabric shop in the city! I love it! It’s so comfy and warm and simple and bold. It has a 7in. zipper and snaps on the side. My other item was this wacky newspaper-like print I found at a fabric shop in Jamaica Ave in Queens; only a yard and a half and for a dollar. I used Simplicity 2151 in View A with princess seams. Originally this was supposed to be a muslin, but I ended up loving how it was looking while in the making. Instead of sleeves at all, I left it sleeveless because the print was so busy. I also didn’t make the bow into a bow, haha. I used handmade navy blue bias tape around the arms. I can’t believe I don’t have a picture of the buttons! They’re cream and gold <3
Rayon/knit-like/polyester burgundy fabric, 7in. burgundy zipper, snaps, cotton newspaper-like fabric, blue bias tape, sewing machine.
