A friend of mine was getting rid of some fabric, so naturally I was happy to adopt it! All of the pieces she gave me were lovely, but I was struck by a piece of pink embroidered eyelet, and had to make it into a blouse.
McCalls 6035, which I made in pink stretch linen here. I knew I wanted a simple blouse to let the fabric shine.
Carolyn suggested pairing it with white jeans, and I love that idea! Now I need to sew a pair of white jeans. I wore my old pair to death!
my knit pencil skirt tutorial, and made this skirt in about 30 minutes. The fabric is ponte knit from Spandex World. It feels very similar to the Sophia line of double knits that you can get at Vogue Fabrics. It's quite nice!
On a personal note, I'm going out of town for the next week. I do have another make to show you, but I'm not taking the computer, so it will have to wait until I get back, and I won't be doing any sewing during the week, so the blog will be quiet. Hopefully, we can get some pictures of my new dress among the beautiful Smoky Mountains!
