Black Pencil Skirt

This week is a pencil skirt that I am very excited to start wearing to work.  It originally had pockets, but those needed taking out because of puckering.  I also ended up tapering this skirt more than the pattern called for. I’ve used this pattern before with my Pinstripe Pencil Skirt.  The fabric is leftovers…

Pin Stripe Pencil Skirt

In spirit of continuing to use up all my remnants/stash this next project is completely made of leftovers. The fabric is leftovers from my Little Cubs Ring Bearer outfit, the pattern was New Look 6107 (previously used in Pearls for Work), and the notions (zipper/hook & eye/ thread) are a gift I received under unfortunate…

Flower Explosion

So this fabric I believe I have had for at least 3-4 years because I loved the pattern but never really figured out what I wanted to do with it.  First I thought I would make a dress but the pattern just seemed too bold for that. So I finally got around to doing something…

Box Pleat Skirt, Self Drafted

Welcome back!  I have had this fabric for about 8 years, and have gone back and forth trying to figure out what to do with it.  I know a friend back in high-school had the same fabric and made a purse out of it.  I wanted to make a dress, but every-time I sew a…

Green Pencil Skirt

Being a Manager-in-Training is intense work, and a bunch of long hours.  But I am enjoying working with our store team!  It took several of my days off to finish this skirt due to only being able to sew for a couple minutes at a time.  I was originally going to use a different skirt…
