M6559 Well, sort of!

Thanks Mimi for the link for the necklace loves it!


  By golly wow! I think I have really caught the Pintrest bug. I've had an account for a moment ,but never really and truly used it as intended, or even enjoyed it for that matter. That is, until now! I am totally hooked, hooked I tell ya! LOL... I even got my mama hooked lol! Okay, back to the schedule post: "M6559 Well, sort of."

Pinned from Pintrest

I cut out the underlining fabric first so that I could cut
my fashion fabric on a single layer to ensure the stripes
lined up properly... 

 I was browsing around the Internet this morning and happened to stumble across this wonderful striped tank from Madison and LA for 62.00 dollars. Umm.. absolutely not! I remembered that I had a yard of fabric left over from my Mission Maxi dress and got to work! I forgot to mention that when I made the Mission Maxi dress that I underlined the entire dress. I knew going in that I would have to do the same thing for this tank top, seeing that I used the exact same fabric. Making M6559 into a racer back tank was easy as pie! I just basically measured the pattern at where I wanted the hem to fall and that was that. I used pattern piece D and E (racer back) attached binding to the arm and neckline, having to sacrifice an old RTW dress. The movers packed up our things last week and I don't have my stash. We are basically living out our suitcases right now! However, I did have the privilege of having my machines express shipped to Texas woo hoo! So you know what that means right? A few more weeks to get some sewing done before head stateside!
Really love this tank! It's so comfy....
Did I say  I love this tank  :)
Well ladies that's my time! I have some other things to show you hopefully later on this week so stay tuned for that...As always, Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  2. Lovely top. I love Pinterest. When you first join it's a pain as you are automatically following "all" the boards of various peeps. I had to unfollow quite a few then start following boards I was interested in. Absolutely love it.
