Project Three: Sew 10 Items in 100 days.
I should have called this challenge, how big of a mess can Alyson make of her house in 10 days. It got pretty bad Sunday when I was finishing up my clutch. So far the interviews are going well, but I am exhausted from talking about how wonderful I am and what kind of skills I have. Thanks to some serious coffee this morning for perking me up enough to do it all over again. However, as soon as I got done this morning, I came back to my house and slept... It was great.
Sew What! Skirts: 16 Simple Styles You Can Make with Fabulous Fabrics
Let's talk about this project. I had been wanting a full black skirt for a while to wear when I needed to look a little nicer. However, I had always wanted to try making a wrap skirt. In this book, I found instructions on how to make a half circle wrap skirt. The instructions were clear and easy for me to understand. The greatest thing about this book, no patterns. All of the instructions are using measurements, which I enjoy more than paper patterns all over the place. The instructions are also easily adaptable to make the clothes look however you want!
As for the rest of my outfit:
Blue tank: Gap
Mary Janes: Nine West
