Wardrobe Refashion

While trolling through some comments on my flickr, I came across a picture of a shirt made from Simplicity 4589, which led me even further down the rabbit-hole to this website. O.M.G. I must do this! It feeds into all my neuroses... er, I mean, hobbies! 1) I love to sew and knit, 2) I have a ton of fabric and yarn to be gotten through and 3) I really need to save some money after splurging on a certain Blythe doll...

Gentle River

I've already bought the fabric I want to use for my high school reunion dress, so I think I'm covered.... Oh, wait - there is one more pair of shoes I want to buy... Hmmmm... Well, I haven't signed up yet, so I could in theory buy them and then sign up - that wouldn't really be considered cheating, would it? ;-)

Fancy Pants

I was finally in the mood to attack the *mess* that is my place, and while I didn't get as far as I'd have liked (I never do...), I did do some Blythe sewing. I made a pair of flares out of this really cool tie-dye corduroy I found yesterday morning, and they turned out so well, that I've decided to make more to post on etsy. :-D

I want to make more than just one version, so I pulled some other cord fabric that has embroidery and sequins on it, and I thought, "Those are gonna make some fancy pants!" So, that's gonna be the name of my flares - Fancy Pants. I kinda like it.

Here's a pic of Sabrina wearing the tie dye fancy pants, a hat by Simplykir and a sweater knit by me from Woollyrockers' pattern:

I hope to have some up on etsy this weekend.
