Fabric.com, but they no longer carry it.
Simplicity 9825 from my first pattern review.
That pattern actually zips up the back, and since I wanted to gather the fabric, I moved the zipper to the left side. Readers may also remember that I almost did that, quite by accident, the first time through.
The next step was gathering the fabric. I halved the fabric after I cut the waistband and then sewed it together. To gather, I just used a long stitch and pulled the ends. A gathering foot would also have worked here, but I don't have one.
I'm not sure if I prefer this with the shirt tucked or untucked. I really balk at tucking in my shirts most of the time. I know it tends to look sloppy, but they never stay tucked and sometimes look silly. I think the untucked version gives more shape to the outfit.
This one wasn't too pleased at first, but seems to have accepted Lydia as a minion in her evil kitty army.
What I'm wearing:
Plain black girly-fit t-shirt: JoAnn's, ~$5
Sandals: Famous Footwear, ~$30
Metal skull bracelet: Spencer's, $7 (probably the first spooky accessory I ever purchased)
Plastic skull bracelet: Some gas station in the Outer Banks, ~$2
Skull earrings: the top and bottom pair are probably from Hot Topic, ~$5; the middle pair is from eBay, ~$2 (I bought them so long ago that the archives don't go back that far)
Skull barrettes: pretty sure these came from Claire's, ~$5
Thanks for reading and stay tuned! I have posts planned for every day of this event!
