Hey all, I haven't posted much in a while so this is a bit of stuff I've made for myself lately.

This is my most favorite recent creation. My Wonder Woman skirt! I bought all I could find of this fantastic fabric which wasn't much but it was enough to make this gorgeous circle skirt, which I trimmed with yellow bias tape.



So next a couple accessories- a fur stole and fascinator. I did not make the dress in this . It was on sale and I couldn't resist splurging on a pre-made item for myself. But it was for Christmas so I needed something to warm it up a bit.





I've been making skirts and leggings for myself for a while now but I just finished my first blouse for this last Easter. I also made the skirt to go along with it. I made the pattern for the blouse off of my measurements and was quite pleased with the outcome. I love the neckline the most!






I'm working on some new stuff too so hope to post a couple new skirts in a couple weeks Smiley

I LOVE the skirt. The yellow trim is the perfect accent. Plus it looks super fun to twirl in.   Cheesy

Wow, wonderful skirts and that blouse is so flattering. It must be fun to make things for yourself that fit perfectly. That's what I love about sewing. Now I just need to get motivated to stitch for myself.

It's a blast! I was so scared to start clothing but I started doing some things for my daughter since she is only 3, it used a lot less fabric. And that gave me a basic idea on how to do similar things for myself. I branched out a lot with that blouse. The neckline was super difficult to figure out lol but I got it. After I had made it I had to go back in and put some fisheye darts in and realistically it still needs two in the back as well but I've been lazy and since I was wearing it with a fitted skirt, you couldn't tell it was a little loose in the back anyway. Next up I want to attempt a bustier blouse and then progress to a couple full dresses and eventually my own high waisted retro style jeans. I bought all the supplies for it but I'm a bit scared lol. I always am at the beginning of uncharted territory. And then I progress to "OMG, this is horrible and disfigured and a waste of time." and then "Oh, this isn't as bad as I thought." and finally "Wow, this turned out better than I expected. I'm proud!"

So all that is to say, it's fun. Torturous but fun!

The skirt is so cute.  Are you a model?  You are quite photogenic and seem to know how to best show off your beautiful clothes!

Love the skirt with the leggings and also adding the stole to a good flattering dress!

Thanks for sharing!

I'm in LOVE with that Wonder Woman skirt, and it looks amazing on you! I always look at those fabrics but never have the confidence to believe I can pull it off... I think you've just inspired me Smiley
