NL 6519: I Knew It From the Start

Hey Loves!

I'm back.  It's been a minute!  I've been busy! But, I took a quick break to make something for me.
Top & Headband: By Me (New Look A6519; Cotton from Wal-Mart); Jeans: Target (Similar); Shoes: JustFab (Reeta)

I saw the cutest yellow and black polka dot fabric in Wal-Mart on clearance (2 yards for $1.87).  When I saw it, I immediately thought about New Look A6519.  It's just one of those patterns I pick up often and put it back because the fabric isn't quite right.  Well, this was the one.

I got home and printed one of the croquis from Golden Rippy.  I took a few minutes to sketch it out.  I enjoyed it so much! After sketching, I knew jeans would be perfect.

Each time I try a new pattern, I have to read the directions thoroughly...usually 2 or 3 times before I start.  After reading the directions, I got to work.  The directions were so straight to the point and easy to follow.  I decided this pattern was perfect for practicing French seams and I was too lazy to rethread my serger! Don't judge me!  Next to my serger, French seams are my favorite.  Once I got accustomed to wrong sides together, it was smooth sailing.

It took me 3 hours to finish this project. That includes the time I spent watching Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce.  Here are a few pics.

If you're thinking about making this one, go ahead.  It's a simple pattern that produces a really cute top. You won't regret it. It's comfy and there are many options formaking it your own.  You can color block, mix patterns, change the length and sleeves, and deepen the back v-neck. I know I'll make a few more.

I received a number of compliments on the color and the shirt. This was a good pairing!

Until next time, Smooches!

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: Bourbon & Boots - $109 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: My Version 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 bu

Hello March!

Hey Loves! It's March!  What happened to February? You know what I love about March?!  Spring is near.  After fashion week is all said and done, I like to check out the trends.  I tend to sew whatever I'm feeling but it's nice to know what the trends are for the season and try to add a little of that into my wardrobe.  I like the HarpersBazaar and WhoWhatWear trend reports. HapersBazaar is my favorite because they show you the runway style, some options to buy, and some street style.  Here's my top 5 from the two reports. Hot Pants/Short Shorts Both HarpersBazaar and WhoWhatWear had short shorts on their lists. Yes, I'm a little old for crop tops and short shorts.  BUT, I'm not too old for short shorts and a cute duster or maxi shirt dress. Do you see the vision?
