Can’t get enough skirts lately! Found this one on pinterest . . . it’s another Paperbag Skirt tutorial. I used quilting cotton and I’m not sure how I feel about it. It wrinkles really easily. I need to get acquainted with other clothing fabric options. I do like the shape and the feel of this skirt though and it was pretty easy to make. Oh! And a very successful side zipper installation on this one! No elastic! Woo hoo!
I saw this one hour dress quite some time ago, but it was when I was still scared of jersey. I tried this one out at the sewcial awhile back. I must say, it didn’t go quite as planned. I had the kinda happy accident of making the neckline too big. Oops. Luckily it kinda looks intentional. I like the off the shoulder look. Unluckily it is a bit too short, so it’s more of a tunic than a dress. I was hoping to achieve a look like this with the navy dress, mustard tights, boots and cardi for fall but I might have fallen a little short (ha, pun intended).
Another pinterest find here. I stole one (actually two) of my husbands undershirts (sorry honey, I’ll buy you more) and actually made this one twice. Once it was a little too short. . . the way the tutorial goes, you cut of the bottom of the shirt to make the ruffle. I have a long torso. It was too short. So I used my short shirt to make the ruffle from its bottom and then just took in and cut the arm off another shirt. Kinda a fun look.
Hmm and I had one more easy shirt to show you but it seems as if that picture has been deleted! To be continued. . .
