Mimi's quick 15 min skirt and a sneaky peak of S1756!

  I hope you ladies had a wonderful weekend, I sure did! I didn't do anything in particular, but sometimes those make for the best weekends, yes?! I was able to finish Simplicity 1756 on Friday, and I love it! I'm showing you a sneaky peak today, I know how mean am I lol!

Sneaky peak of my sleeveless blazer S1756!

I do want to show off my little skirt, made by Mimi G's you tube 15 minute skirt tutorial.. I knew on Sunday I wanted a quick and easy project. I debated between this skirt and a New Look pattern, New Look 6150, but Mimi's skirt tutorial won out in the end. I will come back to this top, I wanted to make view E...
There's not much to say about this skirt other than it is extremely easy, I used only a yard of fabric, which was left over from a failed project, so that's a score in my book! I will add however that if you make this skirt, please, please use a zig zag stitch on the elastic like Mimi suggest... Don't ask me how I know, lol! I promise you it sounded like some popcorn poppin' when I first tried on the skirt, without adding that zig zag stitch to the elastic, lol! Also, for the hem I just serged and used a twin needle for the hem.. Easy stuff I tell ya!
Is that a skater dress pattern that I spy cut out on my sewing table, why yes it is!
   Well ladies, I am off to work on some other things that I have cut out this weekend, come on mojo don't fail me now, lol! Be blessed ladies and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
