Can you tell I’m ready for the spring weather to come!? I’m tired of these winter storm warnings in May!
I found this awesome floral jersey at Joann’s and immediately remembered this contrast back sheath dress tutorial that I’d been wanting to try. I traced the shape from a shirt and pencil skirt like the tutorial suggests. I cut the front and back and sewed the side seams… then tried it on. I decided the fabric was too thin for me to feel comfortable in. So instead I folded the top inside the skirt to give it a lining, added some elastic at the top and a ruffle layer at the bottom to give it some extra length and turned it into a flared pencil skirt! With it being lined, it’s super comfortable and I’ll definitely wear it… but for my next project I’m hoping to go for something a little more practical. 🙂
I’m excited for next month’s challenge… I already have my indie pattern picked out… it’ll be my first indie pattern ever (and to be fair only my third actual pattern ever). 🙂
Feel free to stop by my blog (aka my beginner sewing adventures).
Warm wishes from Wyoming!
