What I've Been Doing!

The first is a two-piece
B5169 which is actually further along than what's shown in the photo. It's in a champaign silky like fabric that I picked up in Atlanta back in March.

I apologize for the wrinkles on the yellow outfit. It's an embroidered linen fabric with clear sequins throughout. I wore it Sunday. It's very comfortable. The jacket is V8491 and the skirt is a simple Vogue pattern with an elasticized waist. This could have qualified for the PR Stash Reduction contest, but I needed a yellow outfit for Ladies Day at church before June 1st. AND I ended up not even wearing this for that program! HAHAHA!


Now speaking of the stash reduction contest, this is my fabric that I pulled out to work on between June 1st and July 31st! There are two other pieces that are cut that I did not photo. This is an ambitious stack! And as I straigtened it out to take a picture, I thought who am I kidding! LOL But I am still forging ahead with this because it is so necessary and will be fun just to see what I can accomplish! So the pieces I mentioned not pictured, I hope to finish before this weekend will count for 5 yards. It's a skirt and a top! I'll keep you posted...

Hey, Jackie, your suits look great! How did the ladies at church like the yellow one? You have lots of stash to reduce! I now you'll make some gorgeous garments with it.

Oh, I just read that you didn't wear the yellow!

Your version of the Vogue jacket is soooo pretty. This jacket is on my radar and you've inspired me to move it up!!!
