Today is the last Wednesday of the month half off everything at value village the bolt of fabric $1.75. Sheet $1. Golf cart ( I think that is a golf cart) $6. The sheet will be a peplum and gathered skirt. Oh yeah. Not sure what I am going to do with the bolt of fabric other than give half to my mother in law. It is a heavy material but I think I can still make a something wearable.

Still trying

To fix my dress I took it in about an inch it is still not right it just screams homemade! It is not bad when you out a blazer on but what if I have to take off my blazer. I need some professional intervention. I think I am going to break down and go to Cheo.

Great combo

Saw this On Pinterest and I had to have it. Made mine out of an old t shirt of Leon's it has hip pockets but I kinda like them so they are going I stay. I love that I can make it today wear it tomorrow.

Teal dress

It was supposed to be a maxi like my inspiration. Lesson learned 3 yds not 2. I think it is too big and my seams are a bit bunched that may be fixed with ironing. All in all it is wearable. It kinda looks like pjs.

Another pinspiration

I bought a sheet and pillow case at the thrift store the other day for $3.50 this is what I did with pillowcase.

A Doozy

I have been working on this skirt for about two weeks. I was so frustrated. It was testing me! Finally after my 5 th or 6 th try at the gathers I gave up. Bump it make a casing put some elastic in there and call it a day. I made my sash too long so I only needed half but all in all it came out GREAT! I have to pay special attention to the sash or else I will have sash on top skirt in the bottom and that is not cute! Now to make my plaid one. Making the skirt with casing instead means I can definitely make more I want a neon yellow one.

Sequin skirt

Not bad.

Green and Animal print

Not bad.

Sewing fail

I made this dress. The top is too big. I was trying to make Mimi G's off shoulder maxi. I cut the size 20. Is is fine on the bottom to me but the sleeves. Which wasn't as bad as I thought even though I put one sleeve on wrong and had to redo the whole elastic casing over. I thought the elastic was too long so I shorten it. But it still too big. One lady made it and hers was too big as well hers didn't have sleeves. Any who. That is that.
