Plaid Drop Waist Skirt.

Smashing my fabric stash this month.  I have had this beautiful plaid sitting in my stash for a couple of years.  Its a very nice Homespun Cotton Plaid Red/Green fabric from Joanns.  It has a very small mechanical stretch and the color is very vibrant.  This picture truly does it no justice.  I paired it with 3 tops that I got a thrift store, and I love each look. 

I used McCalls 6842, View "C":

Quick Review:

Ease of Use:  Very easy pattern, came together nicely,

Time:  From cut to finish (No zipper or Hem), about an hour total.  I did not match my plaids, though it came out ok.

Recommend:  Yes, highly recommend.

Fabric:  Homespun Cotton Plaid Red/Green from Joanns 


Problems:  None

Happy Sewing!

New Look Chiffon Chain Neck Halter Gown with detachable Sleeves

I am so very glad to be back to sewing for myself.  I have so many UFO's on my sewing project list to finish.  

I literally started on this gown a few months ago. I was really excited about getting it done for my upcoming fashion show that happened in early November, but it just didn't happen with all my client work.  I am very pleased with how it came out, and I lined it with a tricot knit.   

 I used New Look 6372 to achieve my look., and added detachable sleeves with small snaps.  

It was a really quick make and I probably could have finished in a day.  

Happy Sewing!
