Royal Wedding Sew Along

Royal Wedding Sew Along

When Mccall Pattern Announced their Royal Wedding Sew Along I knew I was all in, any chance I can get to dress up ill take it so this was the perfect opportunity!. The rules where that you can use any pattern from the Mccall or Simplicity line. The guest bloggers also gave a list of suggested patterns that could be used. I was ecstatic because I already had one of them in my stash so I decided to use it!  This pattern was perfect for a few reasons ... I had sewn it before so I was familiar with it and it was PERFECT for the fabric that I wanted to use ...  If you follow me on Instagram you know that I have had this fabric for over a year! It's a cotton Ankara fabric that I purchased from Fine Fabrics in Norcross Ga . When I purchase it I was so intimidated by how beautiful the fabric was that I didn't want to cut into it until I knew that I could do it absolute justice! I wanted to be sure that I maximized the print ..... this pattern was perfect for that

Accordian Pants Colab !

Accordian Pants Colab !

 So I think Im going to live in this outfit for the rest of spring ... and maybe a little of summer !    It is so Chic and Comfortable , and it was a breeze to put together ! This look came about because my sew sister ( TabithaSewer ) and I  discovered that we had the same type of fabric !  I purchased my Acordian pleat fabric from Textile Fabrics in Nashiville , Tennessee.  Tabitha scored her fabric at a thrift store haul in the form of a old formal dress !!  When I saw her fabric on her instastories I had to say something because I had in my possesion the same type of fabric without a clue on what to do with it ! Tab had decided to make a skirt out of her fabric and when she saw my message she immediatly asked me to collab and make one with her! I was excited to colab but not completly sold on the skirt idea for myself. I had been eyeing a pair of Pallazo pants made out of the same fabric but just hadnt gotten the courage to cut into the fabric and make them .

JOANNE ONE SHOULDER CROP TOP

JOANNE ONE SHOULDER CROP TOP

Hiya! I wanted to pop in and share a quick OOTD !   Top : Joanne One Shoulder Crop Top   Pants :  Burda 6966    ( Old Make ) Necklace: Lucky Brand Jeans   ( No Longer Sale ) Shop Tobi   This little ensemble is perfect for a night out with friends or that special someone . The Top features a One Shoulder design with sleeve bunching that I just love !  Although the top technically is a crop top the wrap around tie detail really allow for a more modest covering of the mid section if that isn't your thing.  I paired mine with these cute wide leg pants Burda Pants that I made a few years ago. The pants where a super quick make and work well for any season .  Previous Post  I just love how the entire look came together ! My husband loved even more ( giggle) .... I don't purchase many RTW items since I begin sewing but by this top being both CUTE and AFFORDABLE it's a No brainer . Right now this top is on sale w/Code : SUNFLOWER
