Mother’s Day Skirt McCalls M6842

Happy Mother’s Day!

Flower Skirt M6842

Mother’s Day Skirt M6842

For this project, I used two fabrics.  The fabric used is from A Fabric Place in Baltimore. The bottom layer of fabric is navy blue taffeta.  The top layer of fabric is an embroidered tulle with 3-D flowers in red, pink, and orange. When I saw this fabric a few weeks ago I had to have it. I also did a preview of this fabric on Instagram when Sewing Design School did a monthly photohop and asked us to post #fabrictoafraidtocut!

I generally do not have a fear to cut fabric, it’s fabric, I control it I won’t let it control me! The only part that I did have a slight fear of is wasting the precious petals of the fabric and or cutting it in the correct direction.  I used the larger group of petal pieces as they actually went across the grain of the fabric. The more cascading petals were near the end of the fabric on the left side of it. I have a good portion of pieces left over that I refuse to discard. Perhaps I will add them to a clutch or a cool T-shirt to add some flare!

Here are more photos!

As you can see I did not hem the tulle, it does not fray.  However, the placement of the petals are uneven throughout the fabric it was almost impossible to hem as I would remove a great deal of the petals!

The wind was really whipping after dinner yesterday I am pretty sure quite a few got a peep show downtown Baltimore as my niece took my photos..lol

I will provide more details on these later this week, they are a combination of a store-bought shoe and a do-it-yourself added accessory!

Self-Drafted Ocean Blue Palazzo Pants and FREE Giveaway!

Happy Hump Day!

Hello There!
Here are my first pair of self-drafted Palazzo pants! I love love the fabric color and the fabric. 
I used a pair of pants that fit well, omitted the pockets and used a side zipper.  The pants are still a bit big in the hip area for me, the next pair will be much better!  After I created the pants I found a pattern that would work McCalls 6515 lol but thats ok I need to learn to self-draft and its only through trial and error. The fabric is a cotton sateen with a slight bit of stretch to it that I obtained from Mood Fabrics! However I will be giving away 2 yards of this same fabric, Gutermann’s Thread, and a zipper.
I will post a photo of the Giveaway tomorrow along with the rules and stipulations!
