No. 18 Pineapple slices poppin’ with New Look

Well now how is everybody this good Wednesday afternoon?!  I’m more than all right because I actually felt like taking pictures and blogging today!  Yayyyyy me amiright?!  Yall know I sew like the dickens but flicking it up and writing it down has been just  escaping me lately…I said I was going to change that and why not change it on the 1st of August?  Something about new beginnings make me feel like I’m not so out of touch with what I feel I should be doing…..

Now on to my dress yall….I loves me some pineapple and fabric even more so when the two combine its always a big arse YES from me……you never wanna not buy the fabric you know?……I snagged this fabric quite some time ago from Fabric Mart so when I decided to make New Look’s S0802 View C I took to my stash….I usually sew with knits so sewing with rayon this go ’round was a refreshing change…..the description on the fabric was “Burgundy/Pale Yellow/Sunflower Yellow Pineapple Slices 100% Rayon”….it didn’t slide around too much; if at all and the dress came together with no issues (I usually sew straight out of the envelope and hate the hell out of alterations)….I whipped this dress up on June 2nd this year and have worn it at least twice; I love this little dress!…it just slips over my head with no hardware–I omitted the button in the back because I didn’t have any elastic cord at the time and was too damned lazy to make a fabric loop instead….the pattern only had five pieces and it was labeled “easy”….I cut the size 16 and sewed it up using my guy Greyson, my Heavy Duty Singer sewing machine…..Since the fabric was so light and flow-y I used a heavier thread and sewed double lines on the hem and neckline to give it some weight~~it worked like a charm!….

Okay here are the pictures; my husband decided he would take them for me, it’s already 100+ degrees and these are really the best we could do before we passed out from the heat! LOLOL….Talk to you good folks soon I promise!….oh and if you want me to check out your makes just share em with me!….




my neighbors need to get the trashcans huh?….shiddddd its HOT!  LOL!







My cat snuck outside when we were taking pictures; she is quite nosy!  Yall see her on the porch?…


Now off to brave the heat because I need to go to the grocery store accckkkkkkk

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!
