I had a new skirt pattern out, tissue pressed and cut, ready to go and then the wild hair took over. Or should I say, the lazy hair. Instead of making the new pattern/skirt, I re-fashioned a dress and made yet another Ottobre tee. It's a no-face/bedhead day, so this is all you get. ;-) Weird angle too, because I look like a rectangle which is something I definitely am not.
The skirt started life two+ years ago as this Walmart dress. I shrank out of the dress but I wasn't ready to give up the fabric.
|Before, when it was new|
Here's how it looked on me back then. (So glad my face isn't that puffy anymore.)
|2 years and a few more pounds ago|
The top is my trusty Ottobre 02/2007, in a cotton sweater-ish knit, with some beads tied into a stitched-on organza ribbon (makes the beads easy to remove for laudering). This outfit will be worn to work this week. It's nothing special or fancy, but that seems to be how I roll these days. I think it's the 3000% humidity we've been blessed with this month.
All told, I think I spent about three hours combined on both. After fighting with the Beast yesterday and running errands before that, I needed some comatose sewing. And that's one more thing off the refashion pile on the end of my ironing board.
Have a good week!
