Goodbye Disney World, We had a Blast

We're back from our week long family vacation to Disney World in Florida. We had a great time, but it's nice to be back in our own beds. Time to get to work on some new projects :)

A Little Patternless Sewing

When I finished my new tank tops I had a skirt in my mind that I wanted to make to wear them with. I know the look isn't for everyone, it's even bolder that I tend to be, but I love this skirt tank combo so much I can't wait to wear it.

The skirt was super simple to make. I'll add some pictures to the tutorial later for now here is a step by step to make your own.

New Tank Tops

I've had a lot of time on my hands since I graduated earlier this May. I've been trying to keep busy as much as possible while I job hunt. I recently read Miss Scarlett's School of Patternless Sewing  by Kathy Cano-Murillo, and I was inspired to make some article of clothing with a Carmen Miranda feel to it. As many may have noticed t-shirt design is kinda my thing. I started sketching and ended up with a whole collection of tank tops. These will be up in my shop soon, limited editions. I can't wait to wear them, especially the Carmen Miranda one. I'm thinking cheetah print or maybe a bright red circle skirt circle skirt and my wonderfully fabulous new platform, sling back, peep toe, ruffled cheetah print shoes. Hair wavy and loose with a huge red flower in my hair, now I'm feeling like Miss Scarlett :)
