Day 16 & Similar to a Bicycle

So I enjoyed my outfit today... Can you tell I'm not wearing an undershirt? Scandalous! And I really need to iron my clothes, but many times I'm sitting most of the day... Erg. Well this skirt was reating me a bit better, but it still fits weird, I wish there was an un-shrink button! Anyway as you can tell from these pictures I'm much like a bicycle... too tired. Hahaha. After Kevin and I walked around town, dropped mail off at the post and bought some fabric and zippers for a sewing project of mine. Let me tell you I hate zippers!!! They are the bane of me sewing.

But I did finish the skirt I mentioned at the 30x30 first post, but I made the waist 2 inches too big. So I will have to fix that tonight. And let me tell you I hate my cheapo sewing machine I bought a garage sale. I need to start scouring craigslist again, it stinks growing up with amazing sewing machines... nothing can compare and I couldn't even afford to have my mom's older Viking fixed... doubt I can afford a good used one. So here are some process shots of the skirt.

So yeah. I like to sew, and I love box pleats! Yay! And my dog is cute.

Love your outfit, you look amazing :)
And I'm glad you love to sew because I hate it!! I am horrible at it and just don't have the patience to practice and get better :)

I love this look, it's like artsy sexy librarian secretary. You have such a great, eclectic style that suits you so perfectly. I just love you and your blog. Just so you know.

I think the sheer blouse is gorgeous!
I love it and you totally pull it off without the undershirt.

Chic on the Cheap

The skirt you're making looks gorgeous! I love sewing, I just got a pattern int he mail for a 60s dress with a mandarin collar, now I'm on the lookout for fabric!
