Yall!!!!! I haven’t blogged in too long and for that I want to start this post out with an apology and virtual hug!…My February/Black History Month is off to a okay start and I’m grateful….Now I’ve been sewing sooooo much like nonstop but to blog about em; yeah that’s a whooollleee different story….Recently I told myself I was going to blog more and to be more dedicated to my cool beans of a craft….I may be getting more time to do just that (wink-wink stay tuned)….Right now today I’m sitting here with my GRANDbaby watching Forensic Files and roasting up a chicken….She’s doing something on her tablet; ABC Mouse it may be…..it’s smelling really Sunday dinner-ish up in here!…..I gotta figure out some kinda side dishes to make with the bird…..Okay now to share one of the many projects I done’ made recently…..
By now y’all know my love of vintage stuff and yesteryear; this outfit is one of many that I’ve whipped up but have basically kept hostage from my peeps on accident somewhat hahahahaha….well no more; for this outfit anyway……The pattern is circa 1974—Simplicity 6326 View 2 Easy Cut Easy Sew Jiffy Knits pattern….it only came in one size; “Miss Size 14 Bust 36” AND aint none of these my size! LOLOL luckily knits are so forgiving.…this pattern actually called for knits (my absolute favorite fabric everrr, most of my patterns are for knits) so I referred to my beloved, ever-growing stash and dug out a printed knit I’ve been hoarding of course for no good reason….the fabric sewed up beautifully (which is one of the reasons why I love knits) and fit the pattern perfectly….it’s so comfy and easy to wear although those waistlines were quite high back in the day….no matter; the high waist definitely helps with the chubby hiding thingy I do…..did a couple alterations too; I didn’t add any hardware and I eliminated the butterfly collar….I didn’t really care for it–I cut it out and “set” it but ended up chucking it in the end….I’ll probably make the outfit again though; and the collar then because I kinda liked it on the envelope; maybe because it was in a contrast color on there….::prints and knits are two of my weaknesses just random FYI::….the collar seemed like it was too busy when I tried to add it this go ’round though…..overall the outfit is a really cool addition to my closet so I know it’ll remain in rotation….Vintage wins again peeps and I got a buncha’ crazy pictures to show y’all as proof…..any questions about this ‘fit just ask me, anything to show me just share, and I’ll talk to you good folks soon!
