Casual MsKRS and M6751 #3

First off let me apologize for being a horrible blogger; I’ve just had no time….and being moody as fack doesn’t help either…I’ve been sewing like always but have not taken any photos with the exception for today….I always laugh at myself because when I don’t want to take pictures it most definitely shows in them….I wasn’t all that enthused about taking any today either but I forced myself so could show something and touch bases with my peeps…

Now I may or may not have shown this tank on Pink Cookie before but I know I’ve never shown myself wearing it…I whipped up my tank with some slinky Black and White floral fabric that is nice and cool….Somewhat sheer too; perfect for a very warm day like today….we are almost hitting the 95 degree mark around here….My stroll to the store this afternoon was helped by my top being the way it is….I got the fabric from Hancock’s of course quite some time back….this make isn’t “new” either and I’ve worn it at least twice before today….I didn’t feel like heels or anything fancy this afternoon; plus me walking to anybodies store just ain’t gone’ happen! (although Ive done it before hence my conclusion of not doing it again)….paired it with some jeans and Gladiator sandals and off I went….I grabbed some spaghetti stuff and came on back home to make it….In fact I’m writing this post while extremely stuffed with spaghetti, garlic bread, and salad….I know it would be a shame for me to eat any more but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to….I’ll wait though as there is always plenty of spaghetti left….I always make tons of it; it just happens that way….
Since this was my third time sewing the pattern I have have perfected the fit….the first one was just a wearable muslin in an Orange knit, the second one was better whipped up in a Turquoise stretch lace, and this one in the fabric described earlier in the post…..the arm holes are just right; cool to wear….I opted out of the hemming this time and just serged all the edges…I’ll wear it many more times because its just easy to wear….it can be worn like I did today; very casual or dressed up with heels….If I don’t have to do any walking maybe the next go ’round will be more chic….Now let me share the photos…I got my Netflix working again so of course I’m watching all my Frasier episodes until its time for bed….I have a project on my sewing table all cut out except for the pockets too…I may or may not mess with it this evening….I’m too full right now that’s for sure….I’ll just have to let my food digest as my Mama would say…..What have you good folks been up to?…
(I’m including a couple flicks of the first two I made for comparison…the arm holes show the difference)

Side shot showing awesome arm holes that fit and don’t sag….Yayyyyy me!

Back shot…got the High-Low thing going on….

Me again showing off the other side….

MsKRS sews period….
this is the second time I made it…they’re all View A if I didn’t mention that before….the armholes on this one are better than the first but still needed a bit more fitting….
This is the first time I made it; the wearable muslin I talked about….see how the arm holes are just not  all that good?….I sleep in this one now but I still love it…I could have fixed them but I knew I’d sew it again and have a chance to perfect them….I designed the skirt too; no pattern though…just put together for this comfy outfit…and my Cons are to DIE FOR…..

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
