2) What is your absolute favorite knit skirt pattern?
3) Don't you hate paying good money for poorly constructed clothing?
1) My toughest critic, by far, is my lovely daughter. The good thing is, I know she won't let me leave the house looking ridiculous. The girl does not mince words. Case in point: Last month before we went on our beach vacation, I sewed up McCall's 6559, the oh so popular maxi tank dress. I thought it would be a good dress for the beach, going out to dinner, over the bathing suit, whatever. I made it in a green knit, that wasn't my best color, but I had a lot of yardage. So I looked at this as a muslin, 'cause I wasn't sure this dress was going to work on my bod. Well, it didn't work on my bod.
|No pictures of me wearing this were taken.|
2) I ask this skirt question because I want to make a black knit skirt this week, casual, easy, not a pencil skirt. I'm eyeing the Bobbie Bask by Style Arc, but that will take too long to get here. If I can't find one in my stash I may have to just copy one from my closet. Suggestions?
3) Ugh. This pains me.
Isn't this a pretty little blouse? Nice lace panel set into the back. DD loved it, we picked it up this week at Nordstrom's, in the Junior's Department. I should have looked at it closer.
The top is made of polyester. The label said Dry Clean Only. Yeah right. I hand washed it. It's still wet in this picture.
That's when I noticed the pockets. Unfinished. Jagged cuts. Fraying.
I expect this from H & M, Target, yes. Nordstrom's? No. I am annoyed that I paid for this! I know as a person who sews, you get this.
Well that's all I've got for now.
Have a fantastic Friday!
