Preview: A Cropped Top/Skirt Set I Designed

After another yet busy week of trying to learn to work with elastic, darts, and even try to make stuff without a pattern, I must say I am pleased with how much I learned so far.  I had to rip seams apart on many occasions this week with this latest project, and had to use stitches in places I really didn't want to, but I am learning and definitely learning fast from my mistakes.  Above is my my 2 piece set I am going to show you Monday as an outfit post.  Currently, while I am trying to learn everything and anything I can about designing clothing and sewing, I am using very old fabrics my kind Mother-in-law gave me for practice.  I took what I could for now and am trying to make the best I can with the fabrics.  I love old fabrics and vintage, so I am digging the old fabrics a lot that I have.  It's a great pattern and print mixture I created and I am excited to share with you for the feedback.  I added a separate piece of fabric to the bottom hemline because I made a mistake, but Monday you will see the results and how this looks on.  Hope you all have a great weekend and next week will be 2 outfit posts and I am planning to post Mondays and Thursdays from now on.  Just want to give you a heads up to those of you who visit regularly.  See you soon!  

Thanks for stopping by today and have a 
wonderful day!
