Hey Peeps! I'm actually blogging about an outfit!Hellerrrrr Readers!
Since I have been active in this PeriCrafters Wardrobe Challenge I have actually been sewing and blogging! I started up blogging again after a few of you had questions and stuff. But since I have found Periscope I have been sharing on there. WELL, I just finished an outfit and I really love it so I'm blogging in depth about it.
I decided to use simple patterns for each piece so the fabric could be the show piece.

Anywooo. . . Let's talk about this beauty
The Geometric Boarder Fabric (Matte Jersey) I scored at Fine Fabrics in Norcross, GA. What a visit! I scored a lot of fabrics I didn't need for $49!! (ROFL)
The shirt has a contrast piece at the top of the top (tee hee) front and back, both cut on the fold. So I utilized the boarder as the contrast fabric. Since I didn't have much fabric left I had to cut the back in two separate pieces and added seam allowance. This also allowed me to better fit my top in the back. The contrast pieces were cut on the fold per the pattern. I chose to bias bind the neck and armholes for style and stability. The pattern says fold down/stitch. This top needed more and I love the result.
I guess this outfit is my prelude to fall sewing. As much as I hate the cold weather I gotta start somewhere. (Shat!)
