Make skirts and dresses of course. My favorite jeans ripped and my only other pair are on their way and since I didn't want to do laundry today I made some clothes.
The first thing I made is a skirt made out of some really cheap b&w polka dot fabric with pink buttons and a magenta zipper. The eyelet lace at the bottom is from my great grandmas stash that I inherated last year when she passed so its like she with me all the time when I make item out of her stuff.



I also made a b&w plaid dress, i got the fabric a joanns a long time ago, I bought 2 yards of it just because it was pretty. I used butterick b4443 veiw A, I love the pattern but it runs very big I made a size 14 which should have been almost too small but it came out huge so I took out the side back panels, panel 3 out of it. I think next time I'll make a size 10 or even an 8. also took in the front under the bust area a little bit to make it fit perfect I screwed up the zipper a little so its wonky I have to fix that and I might add straps to just wear a tank under it like in the pictures.



My wonderful husband took the pictures for me, it took almost 20 minutes to get them because he was being crazy and making me laugh, hes the best.
