No. 7 Two piece and a biscuit

Evenin’ everybody!…I’m sitting here watching the telly, thumbing through my sewing magazines, and anticipating whatever fresh hell I’ll encounter tomorrow in the workplace….I’ve been sewing my little heart out ever since I got home from work Friday evening; I just freshened up and decided I may as well blog again….I’ve made some super cute stuff this weekend but this post is about the odd one….I mean to do the best I can to show my makes as I create and wear ’em….

This post is about the dress whose identity was changed in my secret sewing society….My new two piece was supposed to New Look’s View C; a dress….I’d had it cut out for at least three months but for some reason I kept getting frustrated with it….its not a particularly difficult pattern; it just gave me the blues every time I tried to put it together…I went back to it 3 or 4 times before I stashed it in my Basket of Shame (a basket that holds UFOs, half arsed muslins, and other goings on) ….I cleaned and dusted my sewing space last night and this morning got up to go through the contents of the Basket of Shame and I found my project in there waiting…some pieces were still pinned together; and to my surprise the bodice was partially completed….I had even installed the required zipper! (which I hardly ever do with such a light fabric and I don’t even remember when I did that!)….as I went through the pieces I came to the realization that I couldn’t bare to throw them in the scrap pile….I thought about it for a minute or two and went to work….I ended up with a two piece ensemble that is kinda all right if I do say so myself….I used the extra fabric for my usual sash which will probably look much better as a head wrap….the pockets didn’t bother the drape with my alteration so I kept em….I did away with the neck facings well because frankly they made the neck too heavy and awkward looking….the fabric is so light; which I didn’t know as I buy a lot of my fabric sight unseen if you will…when it gets here I inspect it and stash it away….I love every piece though…the top features those comfy kimono sleeves so this outfit turned out to be a go after all….Besides me being a pack rat I always keep my “mistake” projects….I turn em into something else sooner or later probably because I can’t stand to part with the fabric (pack rat syndrome)….I’m glad I kept this one; I free styled my arse off and came up with some good stuff….Sewing is just cool like that…..

Any body working on a project that turned into something else?….What’s on the sewing table?…UFOs and crazy looking muslins like myself?..Let me know!..I have some pictures to share and I’ll talk to you good folks soon….

Shot of the zipper….its a pretty cool install too…when I inspected it today I thought to myself, “why did I not finish this dress?”….I got nothing; maybe because it wasn’t meant to be a dress for me…(shrugs shoulders)

My sash/head wrap…..I’m leaning more towards head wrap because I won’t have to deal with my hair when I wear this…that’s if it doesn’t look too “matchy-matchy”….

My new two piece outfit!…its hard to tell its a two piece but if you look really close you can kinda see….I didn’t know how to feel about it at first; it was giving me a 70’s kinda vibe…but now every time I look at it I like a little more….Pink Cookie is still wearing it and wearing it well…it turned out nice amiright?…..

  2. Love reading your blogs! The fabric is super cool, chic and fun. Kinda Afrikaans reggae and what the ladies in the late 70s wore in their 2 piece jump suits! This will be fun to accessorize ! I’d love it with black paten leather pumps & some cool gold bracelets😍❀️ Fashion genius !
