Finished - Yellow Crop Top



Following the trend of using my last usuable piece of fabric to make a crop top, here I attempted something a little different. I started cutting out pieces and sewing before I had any clue what I wanted to make. Then I didn't really have anything to close and finish off the top/vest I made. Technically it's finished but really it's in a holding stage until I find something I want to spice it up like a zipper or cool buttons.

Finished - Yellow Pencil Skirt


I'm a sucker for an eye catching pencil skirt. Something about the basic silhouette works incredibly well with a unique fabric. After making this blazer, I still had quite a bit fabric leftover to make something else. I knew the fabric itself would make a beautiful skirt I just had to decide how long I wanted it. I have a habit of making miniskirts so I decided to change things up by making a knee length pencil skirt and here it is!

Finished - Fall Striped Jacket


Continuing on my streak of making things out of season, here is a perfect fall jacket. Yeah the jacket might seem a little out of place right now but fall comes back around every year.

Get The Style - Plaid Crop Top


Plaid Crop Top


What?!?!? A new segment???

As you might be able to tell, I love just whipping up whatever piece of clothing I want. Other people either can't or don't want to. I figured I'll try to find pieces that are vaguely similar to what I've just sewn on the interwebs from now on. I think it will be interesting to see how brands have decided to interpret the look... or to just shop. 

Finished - Plaid Crop Top


Don't get me wrong, I do LOVE crop tops, but not as much as my sewing would have you believe. I actually sew so many crop tops to counter my hoarder behaviour. Instead of keeping a small piece of fabric, that isn't enough to make much of anything, I sneak out a crop top and call it a day. When I say this is ALL I could make out of the rest of the fabric I used to make this jacket and this skirt, I'm not exaggerating.


Sometimes you just need to make something quick and simple. It helps that usually things that are pretty simple get the most wear, which is really a win-win situation
