Just had to get a little show off picture of the outfit I made for my daughter(Young Miss) from scraps from the flannel I used to make sheets for the bed......70" wide material gives you the luxury of some good sized scraps to work with.....So from my scrap stash This emerged. The skirt is a multi paneled Vogue( I will have to post the number later as my sewing room is being reworked and it is MIA in the piles somewhere, AAUUGGHH!).. Anyway we are not skinny misses in the this house by any means..As my lovey hubby likes to put it....G-d did not skimp on the portions in our house. Anyway this pattern IS A KEEPER..It is awesome fantastic for curvier gals....The cape had no pattern, I just winged it. It is lined with lining from the stash ..And this trim was picked up at a thrift store about 7 years ago for $1.00... It had many many yards on it..Still some left......Anyway here she is..........
Disclaimer: this girl is in desperate need of a haircut!!!
Pretty cute for scrap yah? Still think it needs a different top.Since the red are not quite right together. But the hat from her wardrobe is a perfect match.New blouse Soon. Total cost to make was $7.00....See I am out to prove to all the nehsayers that that sewing CAN be cheaper than buying and you get one of a kind and cuter stuff to boot! Heres to creativity. THERE!(sticking tongue out)
