A Lackadaisical Sunday…

I cherish my Sundays..I really do. Why? Cause they are the only day of the week I can spend completely to myself. Which is exactly what I did. I didn’t go out. I didn’t have my phone nearby. I didn’t think about work. And even though I love my current costuming obligations, even that took a backseat to what I wanted to do today – which was eat and sew…for myself! It was super nice to go through my extensive fabric collection and re-discover what my paychecks happily went to. So that being said, I wanted to share what I churned out over the day…which happened to be a dress and 3 super cute tops…

Here’s a photo of the vintage patterns and fabric that inspired this sewing binge…

And here are the finished products…

I totally strayed away from the pattern for the 80’s/geometric print top. I love  to play with volume, so I decided to make it really puffy by adding a band at the bottom. I plan on wearing it with a pencil skirt or shorts. I just threw together these combos…I’m not sure what I’ll really end up wearing the tops with…any ideas??

I’m so glad I took the time out to do this. I know my creative juices have been building up lately, so I needed to take the time out, release them, and focus on some stuff for me. Now that that’s out, I figure I won’t be able to sew for myself until after Legacy is done…which is all good, cause that has tons of satisfaction wrapped up in it too!



**I noticed a lot of “In My Bag” posts on the blogs I frequent so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and post one too!...
