Are you kidding me? It’s the final week of season 6 over at Project Run and Play. I made it through the sew along. This is huge for me. I set a goal and I achieved it.
I have a teench of joy to share. So, my shirt from week 5 won the sew along judges vote. That means I won a little prize. Yaaayyy!
This has been so much fun, and let me tell you, the other women in the main competition as well as the sew along are amazing! So many different styles. So many beautiful fabrics. It was just great.
Well, I guess I’ll finish this thing up by sharing the look I created for my signature style. Honestly, I have no clue what my style is at this point. I feel like I’m too new in the game. I don’t know. Maybe some kind soul out there can shed some light. I will tell you this, I am particularly fond of a few things. For this design, I decided to use a collaboration of things I’ve found to be fabulous. Black & White, denim, lace, and pearls. Not to mention, my appreciation for upcycling is growing exponentially. Oh, and I love the art of layering. If you can make any sense of this please do, and then tell me.
The items upcycled for this look were a pair of denim capris and a vintage lace curtain.
Put these two together and what do we get?
Pattern was self-drafted for this project. I took my inspiration from a cropped jacket given to me by one of my dearest friends several years ago. Thanks Sally! Collar can be worn down, but for Curly Cutie I went ahead and popped it! Aggghhhh! Lol! The knit tank underneath was store bought last summer.
I have been itching to try my hand at a circle skirt. I have wanted to make one since my look for week 2 when I found out I didn’t have enough fabric. I thought this would be the perfect time to crank one out. I found a tutorial from Dana to be quite helpful in making this type of skirt. I opted for a fabric waistband in place of the elastic one in the tutorial.
I can see why these skirts are well loved. Simple and cute. This certainly will not be my last. CC gave me a huge hug after we put on her outfit. She was soooo happy. She told me that she is very proud that we made it all 6 weeks and that we make a great team. *Cue waterworks. I didn’t really cry, but my heart was deeply moved.
And that’s a wrap! I am linking up to Project Run and Play and The Train To Crazy this week. Thanks to all that left me such sweet comments and words of encouragement throughout the sew along. It is truly appreciated. Why am I sounding like I just won an award? Well, maybe I have in my own mind.
