Wow. What a busy (and quick) weekend! I did manage to get my outfit finished...I finished the bottom hem of the jacket about 15 minutes before leaving home for a high school graduation! I think the outfit turned out pretty good, however, now looking at photos, I realize this ensemble is definately not figure flattering. I thought I liked empire waists, but really, if you aren't a size 2, and maybe 22 years old, this style should probably not be in my wardrobe. What do you think? I did accomplish what I set out to do when I started this project: the buttonhole - check, matching the print - check (yeah, the tunic is actually two pieces..bodice and skirt), and I got it done and wore it by the weekend - check. Realizing it looks like a maternity outfit on me - check.
Besides finishing this outfit, I also managed a quick Flea Market Friday run to our local Goodwill store. I found two old belt making kits for .$49 each and a cool basket. I want to say the basket a sewing basket, but I think its original purpose was to carry picnic supplies. It was $2.99 and can be whatever I want it to be right?
I'd like to give a shout out to May at Handmade Matters for posting my adjustable strap tutorial!
