Shop With Me - 4: My Favorite Tunic

So, I'm checking out linky parties and ran across Putting Me Together's One Piece Many Ways Linkup.  I'm not really big on being photographed more the once wearing the same thing.  So, I don't have many pictures of me wearing the same thing twice. So, I combed through my photos.  There in the my many pictures I found 3 photos of me wearing my favorite green tunic, a gift from the hubby.  This tunic has gone on many vacations, to many parties, and even to work.
1 Tunic 3 Ways

Yes, all of these pictures are of me.  I like to experiment with hairstyles.

Let's talk about the three looks:

The 1st Look - Party Fit:
Tunic paired with bronze belt, bronze sandals, and minimal gold accessories. This is the way my hubby intended for it to be worn. He thinks I can wear just about anything.  I think it's great that he loves my body.
The 2nd Look - Date Fit:
Tunic paired with dark denim, colorful sandals, and minimal gold accessories.  Hubby and I went to our favorite brewery in Gatlinburg, TN. 
The 3rd Look - Church Fit :
Tunic paired with a black pencil skirt, black sandals, black clutch, and silver accessories.  This is my favorite look.  It's simple yet classy and sexy.  

Do you have favorite go to item in your closet?  How do you style it to keep it looking fresh and new?

What's Hot Here?

Congratulations Are In Order, Part 1: DIY Wedding Gift

This past weekend my big little guy was in a wedding. I love weddings so I was very excited. The four of us (and all the bags) piled in the Tahoe for the road trip. It was quite the adventure, but it was worth every minute.

Back to what you came here for the DIY project.

One night while searching Pinterest, I found this really cool print:
I thought it would be a great gift for a couple.  I even thought it would be for my bedroom (I'm seriously considering making one for us).  So, when I was thinking of the perfect gift for this wedding, my mind immediately went back to this idea.

I thought about how I could make this idea my own.  I came up with this: I took this before I decided to add the year they were married to the center top.

Here's what I used: Frame & Mat:  I was prepared to make my own mat, but I found a frame that included the perfect mat  for 3 5" by 7" prints at Ross.Map: You can buy an atlas or map.  OR You can do like me.  I used Google maps t…

2018 is Here: I'm Not Ready

Hey Loves,

2018 crept on in here and caught me slipping.  Really, I'm totally not ready.  But, time waits for no one!  So, here goes nothing.
I got in on this great challenge by the skin of my teeth.  I actually got a too late notice.  :(  Then, I got a you're in notice. :)  Talk about an emotional roller coaster.  I'm one of 1067 sewists participating in the 2018 RTW Fast.  I'm number 1024.  See! I barely made it!

Well, here's where the unpreparedness kicks in.  I had an event to go to and nothing to wear the night before. Normally, I'd go look for something last minute.  If I didn't find anything, I'd sew up old faithful M6886 and add a little something extra to make it give it some of my flavor.  Well, that wasn't happening at all.  See, I'm fasting from all clothing purchases, including emergency last minute situations.  Yea, what did I get myself into?!  Then, I remembered my after Christmas shopping excursion:  Target clearance + 20% off &…

Lesson Learned

McCall's 7047 Modified Using Simplicity 1072
Hey Loves!

I'm so excited about today's Tip Tuesday. It's actually a combination of Me Made Monday and Top Tuesday. I get really excited to see other people wearing my creations especially when they feel good in them.  She looked gorgeous and said she felt gorgeous.  That's all that matters!

The two piece ensemble was her vision.   I immediately knew I'd use McCall 7047 to make it.   I'm always using it for different projects and knew it could easily be adjusted to meet her need. It definitely fit the bill. Here's a link to my review of this project.

So let's talk about the fabric.   It's a quilted knit from Joann Fabrics.   I used the same fabric in boysenberry to make this cardigan. (Here are links to the black and boysenberry quilted knit fabrics.)  I love different fabrics.   I guess it's one of my things.   I love texture of this fabric.   I also love the elasticity.   It has a close stitch w…
