the traveling skirt

Hello again Blog Friends!
Well I just returned from traveling & one of my fave
skirts went missing from London to Paris (my luggage
had a sticker on it saying it was a random check).
So what's a girl to do?......well sew up another one
of course, with the exact same fabric!

I used my New Look 6571 pattern & added in-seam pockets.

Oh & if you see my skirt walking around in Paris
this is the label inside ;)

Sew you later!

Denim Skirt

Today's skirt is made from denim.

Another "A" line skirt with a zipper flower that I made to
the top of the skirt.

The pink serge hem is just for fun
because I like pink!

Sew you later!

Black drape dress

I needed another black dress to wear to the 
art theater the other night, so I sewed this 

easy McCall's 6069 pattern.
I used a heavy ponte de roma knit
that feels luxurious to wear.

I did a few mods by having the back
drape more than the front,
as I had made this dress a few years back 
& was forever pulling up the front 
bodice gape.
I also added about 2 inches to the

An easy dress to sew but took me about 4 hours rather
than the 1 hour the pattern claims.
I like this style with the inseam pockets
but I always belt it as
it looks too frumpy without it!

Sew you later!
