Sew for Victory 2.0
Miss Crayola Creepy 9:18 PM Completed projectSew for Victory outfit, only a week late. The outfit was done last week, but with all the Project Sewn craziness I didn't have time to photograph it. But here it is, in all it's cat hair glory.
Kimono Top pattern by Salme Sewing Patterns and it was a fun, quick make. It's perfect for those days when you want an instant gratification project and don't have much time to sew. The only downside to the pattern was that one of the facing pieces was incorrectly labeled. It wasn't a big deal, but here is your official heads up in case you want to sew the pattern. Oh, this was also my first time sewing kimono sleeves and I am an official fan!
Mabel by Colette Patterns. Do you guys follow Sarai and Kristen on Instagram? They both posted photos of themselves in black Mabels and I was pumped because I had planned to make a version in black too. Sarai told me that she wore her version every week and Kristen said that it has replaced jeans for her. In the last week I have worn my skirt twice and I would probably wear it more if I could get away with it, so I couldn't agree more.
I like this version of the skirt more than my first version. This one is made with the recommended fabric while the leopard print one was made with a sweater knit. Who would have thought, using the correct fabric made such a big difference ;) Don't get me wrong, a sweater knit might work for the first two versions, but the kick pleat on version three isn't as crisp as it could have been if the right fabric was used.
The Fabric Store in Los Angeles. It's 100% cotton, light, breezy, and comfortable. It will be so great to wear this summer.

And most importantly I would like to thank Rochelle for hosting this awesome challenge!
