SSS Day 13

While looking at the pictures I had taken for yesterday, I couldn’t help but sing a song from my son’s kids song cd, “Let’s all go to the library, we’ll have so much fun!” Someday I’ll remember what music I used to listen to…

Anyway, you’ve seen all this before but not in this combination.

hmmm.....

I have to say, these pants are so comfortable and fit just like I want them to. They feel very rtw and are probably my favorite so far…except for my Anita Jeans which you will see in tomorrow’s outfit. I cleaned up my sewing room last night and put some things away. There were projects I was hoping to start for Self Stitched September that I’m setting aside for another time. There are things already cut out that I’m leaving on my work table in hopes of finishing before the end of the month. The problem is that fall is in the air and with the Lady Grey Sew A Long starting up, if I don’t finish them now, it might be next year until i pick them back up again and I really do not want UFO’s floating around my sewing room! (Unfinished Objects, for those of us new to that term…) Also floating around in my mind is my son’s Halloween costume. I have all the fabric and patterns…I just feel an urgency to get with it! Maybe some day I’ll stop doing this to myself, stacking one project upon another….but knowing me, probably not! haha.

SSS Day 8

Yesterday was a looooooooooooong day. I was up super early and wanted something easy to wear. I chose my flared denim skirt (Simplicity 5914) and my (non) Maternity Wrap Top from Megan Nielson and, of course, my white camisole refashion underneath.

SSS Day 8

I have to admit, I should probably have used a lighter weight denim or a slightly different pattern for the skirt – the hem sticks out pretty definitively and I find myself hoping it softens up after a few washings, but at any rate, it’s kind of fun. I had seen a lady at church with a flared denim skirt, buttons all the way up the front with a belt and thought it was really cute. Anyway, I didn’t pay enough attention to detail or think it all the way through or something. Does anyone else struggle with making their vision a reality? What are your roadblocks? It has definitely taught me that, in the future I will need to have more focus. When I used to sew for brides, they would bring me a picture and I would study, I mean STUDY it, find all the detail and try to understand just exactly what the bride had in mind. I would sew it mentally in my head before I even started. This is the same dedication I need to channel in the future.

So the question is, do you like the skirt? Should I pull out the top-stitching and maybe lessen the flare? I’m thinking I might, especially after seeing the picture, but I’d like your opinion – go ahead, I can take it! lol

Stay tuned for tomorrow…I got my tripod in the mail yesterday so maybe I can find a different, more fun place to take pictures!
