Whatcha Workin On Wednesday

IMG_2806 I must admit that I love the style of the teensy, squared short sleeve. I’ve doted on this style on pinterest, but honestly didn’t think about the construction until I began sewing the binding onto this tank and put the half-finished project on the dress form. Maybe next time.

The original design- quickly sketched, not that I’m too amazing at drawing when I spend a lot of time on it. I have the pattern made for the skirt and the fabric cut out, but I haven’t begun sewing.

IMG_2799That’s my to-do list pinned to the dress form. If I leave it anywhere else, I forget about it and get off track.

IMG_2790I got a little bored and played with the scraps and I love these dainty little flowers. I have enough for several hair clips for my daughters to lose.

IMG_2807Turns out, they would be pretty cool around the neck of a really rad dress, or just as a neck piece. Boredom really does inspire a lot of my designs.

I’m excited about this criss-cross back! It’s fairly open, while still being able to hide a bra. I love fashion and fads, but not at the expense of my bras!

DIY Infinity Scarf

    Infinity scarves. I loved them. But I didn’t have one yet. So when I realized I had majorly over-purchased  this cute bow print fabric for a dress I was making, I got right to work looking for tutorials! There are zillions of tutorials out there on how to make one, so I’m just posting the pictures. I serged my seam with white thread since I didn’t have navy and it was already threaded with white. Black would have been less visible, but it really isn’t noticeable under the dark fabric.

I like the idea of tying one side so it doesn’t slide and choke me. I only had a short length of this creme colored ribbon, but would like to buy some taupe fabric and make a longer tie for it so I can make it into a bow. (Yes, more bows. I love them. I would drown in cute little bows every day if I could. One simply can’t have enough of them!)

The moral of the story?

    When buying fabric, always get a little extra. You may need it for your project. And if not, you can still put it to use.

    Also, bows make the world go round. Let’s remember that, people!photo 4
