Teiraney J Drape dress

I only had 2 yds this is what I did. I followed her video tutorial and i like it. I see it as a tunic top or a really short dress. I used m6886 for the armholes and the same pattern for the sleeve.

I got the top from A-Re-NEWed-Purpose 

I made the skirt to coordinate with it.  The fabric is neoprene from Joann's.  I am going to put a bodice on it and make a dress.  I added pockets but I don't really like them.  They may come out.  I really want a floral pencil skirt to go with the top.  The top is a peplum.  I put my animal print pencil skirt on with it and i did not really like it I was not happy until I matched the top with something floral.  I don't know why.  To make the skirt I used my tried and true scuba skirt template.  I used 10 (40") panels.  I usually do 9 (36") but I wanted it even so that I could 5 panels each side with pockets. So the skirt is a little big.

The children and i went to a food truck that sold mexican sweet treats i had a mangonada we also got a peach and a strawberry one. A co worker gave me a big bag of frozen mangoes so mangonada it is. I watch several you tube videos and instead of water i used tequila. Came out great.

Tried and true

I made this dress the same way i made the last dress. I did not add the v in the back. I forgot about that. I used m6886 and the scuba mini am skirt template. I just added sleeves to this one. I still need to hem. I am thinking of pairing it with a camel belt and shoes.

Print mixing

You know i love to mix print. I made this skirt and so glad. Demi Fuller has an online thrift shop and i bought two striped peplum tops from her. Why did i do that so i can print mix if course. Girl Charlie has floral ponte knit in their shop now 7.50 a yard. The pink black and grey would go great with the black and white striped peplum i just bought.

Here she is!

I posted the sketch or croquis a little while back. I finally sat down and put her together. I still have to hem the top. My serger put me down and I did not feel like rethreading it. Fabric from fabric mart I used 3 panels. Came out great. Plan to #rockthecrop with some skinnies. Stay tuned.

Crop tops

If pooh can wear a crop top so can I. This is my second attempt. The problem every time I raise my arms you can see my undergarments. Pooh doesnt have this problem. Any ways vack to the drawing board.

one more croquis

ok this is my idea my hubby and I  are going to a comedy show.  I am thinking this outfit with heels.  I saw this top at Dillards in a neon color if I can find some of that fabric that will be the pop of color amongst the black and white.  I have the window pane fabric and pattern at home on the table waiting for me.  Now I think about it I am not sure about the shorts.  Might need to make sure I use a good fabric.  

my first croquis

I bought some fabric from fabric mart because Jenese my inspiration made one with a panel from fabric mart.  Hers sold out so when this came up i traded this weeks lunches for three yards.  I am fluffier than she is so my top will be looser.  I am really excited!

Internal happy dance

I made pulled pork used a recipe on Pinterest call dr pepper pulled pork. Really simple salt pepper garlic powder dr pepper and time. I quickly made a pulled pork coleslaw and hot sauce sandwich with a toasted English muffin and that is why i am doing an internal happy dance. I will not buy pulled pork again i want to try it with a store bought rub or look up a recipe. Need to buy another shoulder before the sale ends.

Straight black hole cowl

My attempt at making this cowl i just used the black hole cowl bit did it straight i casted on 26 and followed the pattern until i was almost out of yarn. I used two ball of home town for the yellow and thick and quick for the brown. I also used N hook instead of P. The brown is longer than the yellow not sure why.
