2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

January 19, 2015

JUNGLE JANUARY...

... when incorporating animal prints in my sewing projects, couldn't forget those animals that inhibit the frozen tundra.  I pulled out this long time resident of my stash -  beautiful pontederoma Snow Leopard print that I'd been planning to use for a skirt with since I first eyed these that Victoria made for herself and her cute little daughter.  I'm sort of glad I waited because I've since acquired the marvelous  Colette Mable pencil skirt pattern.  NOW NO ONE LOVES #2 KNIT PENCIL SKIRT AS MUCH AS I DO - I PROMISE YOU!  They present such easy dressing options for rushed mornings - just grab a matching sweater, pull on my tights and boots and I'm out the door.
I have other great pencil skirt patterns, like McCall's 6654, and Pamela's Magic Pencil Skirt.  Not saying that I won't use them again, but for right now I am completely armored with MABLE...

  3. Love your pencil skirt! A couple of pencil skirts are in my queue, but my fabric isn't as exciting. You're right though, they sure are easy to wear.

  4. This is a very pretty skirt. I too, love pencil skirts. Most of the time, I make a pencil skirt with my jackets. I do need to move on as I have a variety of skirt patterns.
