Snuck in a sweater dress real quick, boots too…..

Good evening folks!…again I miss the entire boat for the MeMade thingy this year; although I wear my work every day…..I just don’t have time to take the pictures!…*damn*…oh well, maybe next year…Anyway, ’tis post is about a dress that I thought I wasn’t going to be able to whip up…its so warm and/or hot here like all the time so I didn’t think I’d get to use the fabric until the “cold” comes back….reason being the dress I did get make afterall is sewn up with sweater knit….it finally rained pretty good around here so I hurried up and made one; although it was still on the warmer side…..I have a few sweater knits in my stash but I wanted to sew with the Black knit for some reason (its so super soft maybe?)…..
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…..

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!
