This September has gone by quickly. It's been full of organizing, cleaning and sewing. I've mostly been hemming pants for my mom and brother, but I did make a fantastic navy blue skirt for myself out of my Simplicity pattern #3688. I desperately needed a blue skirt. I have light brown, black and light grey. I consider a navy blue skirt a staple in vintage fashion and any vintage gal needs one in their armoire! Don't you agree? Here is a navy blue polka dot blouse I bought recently at Forever21 (along with a sleeveless navy blue blouse with bow). It has a bit of a peplum effect, so naturally, a skirt would look best. But I realized I didn't have a skirt to match. So, I got out the pattern, started tweaking, adjusting, and this is the finished product. I think the skirt turned out pretty good. Here are the photos. (P.S. note the mums, a true sign of fall!)
Have you sewn anything lately?
