Another pair of shorts

Ok here is my second pinspiration. I am in love! I am wearing that simplicity pattern out. And yes I have another pair of shorts on deck right after I finish my two knee length skirts. If I haven't said it before sewpaloosa! This is why I haven't knit a thing and my girlfriend has a grand baby coming. I still want some sequins shorts I just need the fabric.

I saw this tablecloth in thrift store and instantly thought that it would pair well with my gingham top just like I pinned some time ago. I was up all night trying to finish these shorts and a lace pair as well when I finish them I will post that pinspiration. I have another tablecloth creation on deck (that makes three floral tablecloth lace tablecloth and a solid Kelly green tablecloth).

Mermaid dress

Before you ask I cut this up and made a pencil skirt. Something about it I did not like I used my drafted t shirt pattern for the top and I had extra fabric in the sides I did. Not like that the skirt was not long enough I did not like that. I need another sheet I want my top and skirt to be all one piece I drafted that mermaid part and in theory it looks fine I am going to purchase mi mi mermaid pattern even though a lady on you tube has a free one. I may play around with the you tube pattern first. You know I did not draft the sleeves of my t shirt. Lol!

Still sewing

I made this maxi out of a curtain blogged about that haul already. Final got around to making it. I thought it was going to be shorter but when I held it up I saw it would make a maxi. It had a topper and I thought I was going to make a skirt for the baby but as I was sewing I thought I could add pockets to this so there went the baby's skirt. Still have the curtain tabs I can make both babies bow ties.
I did a flat twist out on my hair. I started too late but it still came out kinda cute.

Pattern drafting

Look who is drafting patterns! Now what I made did not fit but that may have something to do with the stretch being in the wrong direction and no seam allowance. But they look like swim suit bottoms( ok underwear) but you get the idea. Next up basic tee!

Three year hair anniversary

2013 makes three years natural. I like to get my hair straightened so I can see how far I have come. This round was a doozy. I thought ,ok let's say hoped it was longer that what it is. I know never satisfied. I was really going for arm pit length. My journey is my journey. My hair has never been this long before.
