Make This Look - New Look 0393

I was inspired by New Look Pattern 0393 when Mena posted the Hillside Prairie Belted Dress on MTL . I noticed the floral motif and decided to use some floral fabric I had in my stash. While my fabric is not yellow, I thought the scale of the flowers might be similar.  I am pleased with the dress.  I just wish I would have hemmed it by hand, but I hate taking the time to sew by hand!

McCall's 5913 - Black/Plaid Cape with Vintage Buttons

The fabric was something I bought on sale at Hancock's a couple of years ago for no particular reason.  The pattern is one I found at the Salvation Army, and the buttons came from the Knittn' Kitten - a Portland store that specializes in vintage sewing and needlecraft items.  The three came together for this project, and I love the end result.  I had to work particularly hard at matching the plaids along the front and shoulder seams, and it's far from perfect.  But it's wearable!

A skirt for my boots

After following The Sew Weekly for about 5 months, I'm inspired to start posting some of my own creations.  I made this bias  skirt to go with my favorite black boots.  It's made from Simplicity 6360, a pattern I picked up at the Salvation Army last spring.  The only change I made to the original pattern is I omitted the waistband and used bias tape to finish off the top. I love this skirt and will wear it often in our rainy Pacific Northwest weather!
