Clothes I Made

I made this blouse last month. I only had a yard of the turquoise print fabric and I needed more than that, so I used the pink check for the peplum and the collar and tie. It came out really cute, at least on the hanger, not so much on me. I guess the style and maybe the print just isn't quite me. I'd be happy to sell. If interested e-mail me.

I made this skirt last month too. It came out nice and I found this fabric a couple of years ago at a thrift shop. I wanted to make a kimono, but didn't have enough fabric for that. This was about the only pattern where that large border fabric would work. I'm happy with it.

  1. Hi,
    I'm another that found your blog and I like what you do. Your sewing table is kinda like the one my son made me only I needed 2 spots for machines. I'm really interested in the floor. Is it concrete? I'll put you in my favorites and visit from time to time.

  3. Hi Daryl - that blouse is really pretty! I stopped making clothes for myself because they never seemed to fit me properly or look good on me at all! I hated putting in all the time and effort only to have the piece of clothing go to the back of my closet never to be seen again!

  5. I have found that a lot of the prints I love to use in quilts just don't appeal to me when I use them for clothing. I made a cute blouse with a tiny ruffle at the bottom and sleeves, in a beautiful floral and just felt like a circus clown when I wore it! I think my clothing choices are much more conservative than my quilting choices are generally.

  8. When I was young I made most of my clothes. Stopped making them when I ran into the problem you have with your blouse. Too much work and time followed by disapointment in fit or fabric choice. I always like my quilts.

  15. I used to sew clothes all the time but have gotten away from it. I seem to live in jeans and t-shirts now. I really actually LOVE that skirt, though.

  16. I don't know - maybe you should reconsider selling the blouse. On my screen, it seems it would go very well with the skirt.

I woke up about 3:40 this morning dreaming about stack in whack... had it all planned out in my dreams and cut and everything! I LOVE dreaming quilts!
