Hi yalllll! How is your Friday going so far?…I hope alright and that you’re feeling alright too!….I’m trying to keep my promise by sharing more with my peeps and showing more of my makes….Well, here we go now with this one…..
The outfit of the hour is basically a Tim Gunn ensemble that came from an adventurous idea…..First off lemme share that I made this outfit in November of 2017….yep, 2017….I’ve made so many things AND worn ’em but I never take pictures…I’m always so ready to go have fun that pictures just always took a backseat even though I have full intentions on taking ’em…..I’m not doing that hiding my makes thing anymore….I kinda revamped my social media sites to accommodate my new plans for sharing stuff…. well anyway, at that time I saw a cowl neck, A-line, jersey knit maxi dress **pretty awesome description amiright?** floating around the internet and I had it in my mind that I was going to duplicate it….ummmm yeah no; my version ended up looking a hot mess!…..I took to my pattern stash and found a cowl neck top pattern and I was going to self-draft the maxi dress part….by the time I was “done” with the dress it looked like a cowl neck blanket! Oh HELL no….so I sat staring at the big blob of a dress (this fabric is quite thick) for a few minutes and decided to hack it in half and turn the bottom part of the dress into a pencil skirt….it worked like a charm and I ended up liking it; a lot….I created two awesome seam lines in the front to make the pencil skirt kinda fancy you know?….
I cant remember where I got the fabric from but I’m almost certain that it was a thrifted piece…it’s a super thick printed knit fabric that is soooo warm and comfy…it would’ve made a great blanket if I did want to turn the “dress” into a Snuggly rendition but I digress….its kinda brisk outside today but I was nice and toasty in my makes….the cowl neck pattern is a Simplicity pattern from yesteryear; the pattern number of course escapes me but if yall want or need the info just let me know and I’ll track it down for ya’, ya’ know I will!….Now let me share the pictures….I’ll talk to you good people soon I promise!
XOXOXO , MsKRS
