Graduation Preparations !

My BABY is graduating .... YES she will forever be MY baby and yes she is GRADUATING ....
 I have been a emotional wreck !  I know its suppose to be a joyous time , and im sure the joy is down there somewhere , but as of late its been nothing but TEARS .

 ...So to help me cope ..I decided to occupy my time by making her a few outfits :) 

Jadah is the exact opposite of me when it comes to style .. she is very dainty and eclectic ... 
This really helped in coming up with her first outfit !

I chose pattern Simplicity 8130 View A

I was so sure she would love this, I didnt even consult her before cutting fabric !  

The constructions was super easy however, between the main Fabric, lining and interfacing there where a LOT of pieces to work with!

I cut a 10 for her and graded the waist down to a 8 

I decided to go with white so that she could wear it with just about anything!
I LOVE how she looks in it and how it turned out !

For the skirt I found this BEAUTIFUL fabric that looked like Paint brush strokes at Hancock Fabrics!
It was perfect with her being a artist . When I showed it to her she had a complete come apart!


 She wanted a high low skirt so I used Hand by London App  and adapted it a bit.

I cut the " Full Skirt" 
I cut the front piece on the fold beginning at my shortest length and ending at my longest ( 24 inches) 
For the second pieces I BEGAN at 24 inches and cut that Normally!
The two pieces combined BEAUTIFULLY !

To give the skirt a little volume I added Horse Hair in the Hem !

I could tell she loved the outfit !! 

I plan on making one more so Stay Tuned !

Until Next Time !
