Pattern came from my stash; Simplicity #8479 One Hour dress pattern….I got this pattern on one of my thrifting trips….I made view 2, size small….folks must have been a little more thick back in the day because I ain’t been a “small” in quite some time!
(laughing a little bit through my pain;<~~~I'll explain later)….
I believe I’ll be using this fabric again to make a pencil skirt too…I have enough left but next go ’round I’ll be reversing the fabric….I loves me a two-sided fabric….Got a few ideas swirling about a two-textured fitted dress too….I found the fabric at my local Hancock’s of course….it was kinda “unravel-y” but it was a breeze to work with….
Sewing bags is my first love for those that don’t know…..this time I decided to show one off although all my bags and wallets are made by me…..the one I’m holding I self-drafted….Super easy to make and embellish…..I LOVE BAGS AND SHOES like seriously and I felt all right being able to just be myself with my stuff…..Sewing is tight like that…..pretty awesome I tell you what! (in my Hank Hill voice; I’m watching ’em right now)…..My friends kept trying to take my stuff outta my bag and replace it with theirs…Maybe one day I’ll go on a sewing spree and make ’em all one….Okay pictures now…..
