More Knits!

I've been going knit crazy! I wish I would've made skirts out of all my stretch knits! I can't wait to go back to the fabric store in the next couple of weeks, I have the whole summer to sew and that's exactly what I am going to do! In a couple of months I will start working on my coat for winter, I am still on the hunt for the perfect fabric! I can't wait! I have started making little sashes for my skirts so that I don't have to wear belts with them every time, I kind of like it cause then I can make the bow tie either in the front (like in the bright skirt in this post) or in the back (like in the navy skirt in the previous post). It's just a little bit different and nice to have. I am so glad that the sun has come out to play! It is finally getting hot and it feels like summer is here : )
Happy Memorial Day!

Navy Knit

I needed a navy blue knit skirt to wear to Universal Studios so I went and got fabric and made one in like two and a half hours the night before. I think it shows! I did use cheap elastic so that is definitely part of it, usually I use nicer elastic that doesn't fold every time I put my skirt on. I just had that elastic sitting around and I used it, bad move, really bad move! But it is not a big deal, all I have to do is open up the waist band, take the elastic out and replace it with my nicer elastic. I have another knit skirt I am working on that is very loud and fun! I am loving knit skirts right now, I will post more of them later this week. Yay for summer : )

A Post for Myself

This has nothing to do with anything except my friend Manny posted a video of my very first dance concert dancing to Freakum Dress (it was not a very formal dance concert, this was just a fun concert put on entirely by students). I was the only white girl and I think I held my own for the most part, I mean it was my first semester dancing! Give me a break. Anywho I wanted the video for myself but I don't know how to save it on my computer so I decided to post it on here and that way I can have it forever. You don't have to watch it, like I said this post is really just for me to have a record of the number. I will be posting pictures of the new knit skirts I've started making this weekend. Happy weekend!

Polka Dots

I bought a light blue fabric with cream polka dots a while back, I decided to make a skirt out of it and then I made a matching band to go around it. I think it is one of my best skirts yet, skirts are getting easier for me now and I think I might be able to make them from other people. I go back and forth because people can be a bit picky and I don't know what I would price the skirts at. I am not a professional seamstress so my skirts are not perfect. So I don't know, I guess if someone REALLY wanted a skirt I would do it but they would have to promise to love it and not be too critical ha ha.
