Late night sewing

Facebook group is doing a sew along I said hey why not it was two pieces. I made it too big easy fix.
Pink dress used a tutorial on you tube. Man me and a circle skirt I just do not have it down yet I need to make a paper pattern till I get right. That dress took only a yard and a half. Not bad!

Snow day =sew day

Last night I was sewing like mad just in case we did not get a snow day. The school district called at 5:30 am and I was not even mad!  I wanted some palazzo pants and I want mimigstyle new jumpsuit. I have patterns for each but not fabric. You tube to the rescue. Nadira037 has a palazzo pants tutorial that uses non stretch fabric. I was all over that!  I made them a little too big but they are not bad I may shorten them I have on high heels with  these. I am quite proud of myself for my self drafted pattern!

Full skirts

I made two skirts from mimi g regal skirt tutorial. This make 4 skirts I have made from that tut. I put zippers in these. I need an 030 zipper class. 030 is a remedial level class at Livingstone College. The zipper on the red one is way better than the black.
I paid .74 a yd at Walmart for the red one. The metallic fabric cost 2.97 from hancock on the spot the bolt table.

Blanket Scarf

Found this fabric at Walmart. $6.47 a yard. Only needed 1 1/2 yards. I did not cut mines down to 53" on all sides I pulled it out the bag made a triangle and that is all she wrote. I also went to Hancocks and they are still having their 50% off remnant sale and I bought the fabric for the pencil skirt in the picture and some fleece for $2.08.  You see I came straight home and made my skirt made two cowls out of the fleece too. I could not wait. This sewing thing has gotten bad. I have one skirt cut one skirt almost done just made one yes I need to slow down. Lol!

Blanket scarf

Ok I seen the zara blanket scarf and fell in love. I do think it is still available on the the zara website.  I was at the thrift store and found a flannel blanket. Yep. Pinterest has numerous ideas on styling a blanket scarf.
This blogger gives you a tutorial on three ways to wear it.
If you want to make your own the blogger mentioned her zara scarf measures 53" on all sides. So that is roughly 1 1/2 yards of 60" fabric. You can cut it down if you want.
