I had a free day off from work because I worked the 4th of July so I took advantage of it. Had a few items that I had previously cut out and decided I would whip them up pretty quickly. All three were easy to make.
Vogue 9928 is my TNT for a pencil skirt. I have pinned a number of pencil skirts on Pinterest that I have been wanting. I really like the printed skirts and it is an easy way to add color to your wardrobe.
I made view A and took a page from Carolyn @diary of a sewing fanatic by underlining the skirt and I love the way it turned out. The fabric is a cotton blend purchased at Joann's and the underlining is something I had in my stash that worked quite well.
The navy pants were made from Butterick B5222, by Connie Crawford. I like the fit of these pants in the hip area. The width and length I play with as I have made this pattern about 4 times. I have shortened and reduced the width in the legs to get a more skinny pant look before. This time I reduced the width and made these more of cigarette pant length. The fabric is a bottomweight but has a percentage of spandex. I believe I purchased this fabric at Walmart about 5 or 6 years ago.
I am going to get someone with a better camera to take pictures of me in these items and post at another time. I didn't want to stop sewing but had do some other things before going back to work tomorrow.
Well it is getting late and I am winding down. Everyone have a productive Hump Day.
As always, Happy Sewing.
