Simple Summer dress from Stretch Matte Jersey-neckline and armholes are all just a binding by the same fabric... simple and easy.
Same dress accessorized with a scarf of same material and a simple black blazer with home made lapel pins cross stitched and fused glass. A simple suit jacket of black and white are great additions to the working females wardrobe.
This is a silk blouse with draping color made from the Novelty Silk Bin @ 7.97 a yard, Scarf is also from the Silk Bin and the Pants are Tubins' a close kin to leggings, but not tight legged. These tubins' are made from a lovely lightweight textured stretch knit and can barely be felt on. I wear this style pants often as it is a one pattern piece and can be done with less that 1.25 yards of fabric and timing takes me 20 minutes to make. I have many pairs of these pants... see my other blog www.kittyscreation.com
My patterns and how I change them are detailed on this blog.
I make all my clothes for work so you can see how easy it is to sew your clothes. We give classes are the store, but if you try to sew on your own and have any questions I am always available when I am at work. I also answer to my email questions. Kittykittypurrs@gmail.com
This is lovely bright fabric I found in the 'Treasure Hunt Room' and the white jacket was also from this room... Unfortunately I only had a small piece so I had to make it a little shorter than I like and no pockets on the jacket, with a short hem. It works for my accessorizing, and it is a lovely texture light weight polyester.
These Tubins' from the 'Treasure Hunt Room' also had a nice sheen besides being a lovely fuschia color and 4 way stretch scuba like material... the blouse fabric was found in the same room. I try to put coordinating pieces together as I buy them to inspire me to sew them as an outfit and you will many times see me with earrings that are covered buttons of the same fabric.
These earrings were made from one of the 7.97 silks to inspire me to finish the outfit.
Both the scarf and blouse, plus the earrings were made from Silk, and the tubins from the 'Treasure Hunt Room' at 2.97 a yard.
Another easy beachy sleeveless lycra dress, this one has no facings and the edges of the neck and sleeves are just turned under 1/4 inch and top stitched... just two pieces---fast and easy... jacket is just a solid color front back and sleeves all other edges are just turned under and top stitched---pattern numbers and details on
Fancy pants 4 way stretch with glitter woven in the fabric and mirrored lace on the top with a satin flicked accordian pleated bodice makes a casual but glitzy dance outfit for fun on the town... wish that is where it went!
This one was a combo pattern of a lace top pattern and just a loose bodice added to yoke and sleeves of pattern. Top was adjusted to a higher neck . Pants are my usual quick Tubins' pattern.
These Tubins' and Top came from the 'Treasure Hunt Room' and the color of the tubins got many oohs and ahs at work. Luckily the piece was just about 1.25 yards and I loved the color. The top fabric was enough to do an infinity style scarf and was worn with my black blazer for work. I also have a fabric that I bought with the pants fabric that I will make a blouse today.
This silky blouse and kaki color tubins' was a hit... scarves doubled the same fabric as the blouse and a nice kaki crepe scarf a bit longer doubled up under the lapel gave a slightly different look.
Nothing is wrong with every color!... Tone your brights down with your Black or White Cardigan....or make a cardigan in a tone of the outifts colors...
Be Smashing with color and FLOW into the room!
Remember make a goal (like an outfit a day) and 'WHATEVER YOU ARE BE A GOOD ONE'.... 'THEY TOLD ME I COULDN"T THAT'S WHY I DID!... AND DON'T LET THINGS DISTRACT YOU TILL YOU ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING TOWARD YOUR GOAL (like the guitar in the corner) LOL
