Today marks the end of Me Made May 2017 and I am happy that I stuck it through. Last year, I didn’t make it to the end. If you would like details about the knit patterns they can be found at my Ravelry page HERE. I also blogged about some of the knitted garments. Also, all of my sewn garments were also blogged.
My goal–which is going to be very hard–is to sew more dresses. To take the steps to achieve this goal I am joining the OAL2017. I am going to try to sew 2 dresses this year. One dress will be more for Spring (though to be honest, I’m sure I’ll rock it in the fall/winter) and the other dress will be more Autumn. I’ll go into further details about my plans for the Outfit Along in a later post.
Well, that concludes my Me Made May 2017 and it really inspired me to pull out the sewing machine.
I actually finished this a couple weeks ago but, I am just now posting the finished garment. This is Simplicity 2512 and I bought the pattern for 50 cent from the thrift store. I started this skirt in September 2014 but, I did not consistently work on it. I finished it just because I was sick of seeing it on my sewing table.
This fabric was bought over the summer from Hobby Lobby. I think it was on sale for like 1.50 per yard. I also inserted a black satin underlining.
This pattern was fairly simple to follow. It was my first time inserting an invisible zipper. As you will see it is not so invisible. Hopefully, I will improve with time.
My favorite part of this skirt is the sweetheart waistline. It actually has a short sash at the waist but, it blends in with the print.
I am pleased with this outcome. The next skirt I want to make is Miette.
