A couple weeks ago I made up another Hagen Skirt! I grabbed this fabric from Joanns. At first I wasn't sure what I was going to make with this plaid fabric. I initially had something longer in mind but then decided a skirt of that length would be too busy for my taste.

Last time I made this skirt I omitted the pocket (wow how long my hair was!!) but I'm glad I left it this time. It is perfect iPhone 7 size so that is pretty convenient!  This project is rather simple, I would say the most difficult part is attaching a lining to the zipper, which if you don't know how to do YouTube is a great resource! I also left out all the facings because I'm a rebel and just attached the lining to the fashion fabric and flipped it to finish the top edge. 

 I was a little worried about putting off such school girl vibes that I decided to pair with a sweater & boots. So I guess I will avoid collared shirts and loafers with this skirt!

Decided it was time for my wardrobe to have a skirt of a longer length. I often gravitate to shorter hems but as of late I've been wanting to mix it up. I can't remember the fabric name, I try to take a photo of the end of the bolt at the store but forgot this time. I snagged it from Joanns. 

This is the same dress pattern that I drafted, I just sewed up a new facing for the top band of the skirt. Iron on some interfacing and you are good to go!! I bought some plaid fabric to make another but I'm thinking that might be too busy of a print so I'll have to figure something else out. Our days may be warm but it has started to cool off a bit in the evening so I was able to wear my favorite H&M casual sweater. They also make it in a bunch of colors, so if you are looking for a cute sweater this is it!!

Come Black Friday, you will never find me stepping foot in a store. And with everyone putting their deals online as well as Cyber Monday, rest assured I will be on my laptop/phone keeping my eyes peeled for deals. I don't like to buy things just because they are on sale, but being a sewist makes shopping difficult. I often won't buy because I know I could make it. But if the item is on sale, how much am I really saving? You must consider the time it takes to make a garment, unless it's a passion project of some kind. Sometimes it makes sense to buy!

Madewell has 25% off until Nov. 26th and Asos is giving 30% off Nov. 22nd-Nov. 28th with the code EPIC30.

I'm trying to live in this mock turtleneck but it's the most beautiful white so I'm also scared the whole time I'm wearing it that I'm going to get it dirty haha. So maybe its time to make another color!

Snagged this sweater before San Diego finally decided to catch up to the fall season, so as you can imagine it sat in my closet for a bit. This might be one of the softest sweaters that I have even owned!  I believe it is this sweater but they currently do not carry it in white. I've been living in these new 9FIVE glasses that I bought at their store in North Park. I think they are a good alternative to the ever popular Ray-Ban Round Metals that everyone has been wearing.

As I've been venturing into the gym more and more, the idea of sewing my own activewear has crossed my mind. What worries me is being able to find great fabrics that are opaque & the perfect thread tension to make squatting possible. Anyone conquered this? Maybe I should just stick to sports bras for now.
