ice baby ice.......


So I have been organizing my sewing room & going through my pile of fabric that is just too crazy....even for me!

 

I bought this taffeta poly fabric last spring for who knows what reason except that I loved the colour & the sparkles.  I started out making a circle dress with a fitted bodice but this fabric is hard to sew with & I had to remove the sparkles at every seam.  The bodice looked funny so I scrapped that project but finished the skirt 
 using my own circle pattern.  No complicated math here.....its basically a half circle using half my waist measurements & cut on the fold.  I also made a quick cotton straight skirt for the lining.



As it is freezing cold here & to tone down the ice blue sparkles I am wearing a man blazer (as my husband calls it) with a navy blue top.  I also used black bias tape for the hem & by now have no problems hemming the circle like I used to!


 Where would one wear all this sparkle you ask?  Why to the theater of course!

Sew you later!
