No. 3 Sew all the knits; LOVE

How are you good people this evening?….I’m all right; just sitting here watching Snapped and tinkering around in my sewing space….I just finished my first Vogue pattern today (just the hem was left) but this post isn’t about that make….Y’all know me; I done took it way back to some makes from last year….the skirt was whipped up in September of last year and the top in July….I just now got around to wearing em both; well I think I wore the top once before but I didn’t take any pictures when I did….

Before my sewing stuff let me share this:
Earlier I got up and went to Buy Buy Baby to get my GRANDbaby a new car seat and I must say I love that store….it was my first time shopping there; they have some good stuff…expectant moms, newborns, infants, toddlers, school aged kiddos, they’ve covered them all…if you have one in your area go and visit…its nice and has that “baby smell” as soon as you walk in!….a little slice of baby heaven I tell you what (in my Hank Hill voice)…..
Now being as though I sew all the damn time I cannot possibly share everyday; although I do realllllyyyyy want to..(shrugs shoulders)…My little modest Nikon;  I still have not figured the timed piccies out **le sigh** and my Huny’s equipment I don’t dare mess with…but my BabyGirl is visiting this weekend so I snagged her to take a few piccies!….this outfit was so quick and easy to put together…when I got up I knew I was going to wear these two makes…I didn’t want to fuss this morning with this, that, or the other AND I was having a crazy hair day on top of that…. I wore one of my Mama’s headscarves to help me through….
Since I sewed the pieces up so long ago I can’t remember much pattern information; although if y’all want it I will definitely get it….I did find out when I went through my Instagram piccies that the skirt is Simplicity 1616 View D…the pattern called for every fabric but knits…However I hardly ever follow rules so the Blue knit w/ White ticking was my defiant go-to….the top was whipped up using a pretty floral knit fabric as well (this pattern was for knits if I’m not mistaken)….the knits were both the same weight; on the lighter side which made them perfect for today’s 100+ degree weather….
Earlier I kinda lost my mojo too and started looking at sewing instead of actually sewing something **I hate when I do that**….Low and behold in one of my sewing baskets I noticed a denim clutch I had cut out at least a month or so ago….I whipped it up real quick and got my mojo back…this Gingham in my stash is calling me now and I have some linen I wanna mess with too….Okay I’m rambling….Let me share these flippy pictures and y’all don’t forget to direct me to your makes!…I wanna see! LOL

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!
