Well I did get some sewing done this week!I made Simplicity 3690 view E and C.This is one of there easy chic patterns.I love love easy patterns.Top was very easy to make only thing is the tucks in the shirt were very small so it took ME a lot of time to get them in right.With the vest I no troubles until I got to the lining.My lining came out a little short when I was pinning it to the vest.I check to see if all my darts were put together right.Everything seemed to be together right.I didn't have enough fabric to cut out another lining.I hate to tell you guys what I did in fear that I might be put out of the sewing blogging world !!!HA HA Well I took what fabric I had and sewed it to where I needed more lining and cut off what I didn't need and sewed the lining in.You can see what I am talking about in the picture below.PLEASE DON'T KICK ME OUT OF THE BLOGGING SEWING WORLD!!








This is where I had to do some special alteration!HA HA!
Notions:(top) interfacing (vest) five 3/4 buttons
Fabric: (vest)stretch denim (top) cotton blend
This was a great pattern even with problems I had with the vest.


My hubby and I finally finally went to see Tyler Perry new movie.Why did I get married. Yes I put on my newly made top and vest and off we went.This was a good movie.Thumbs up for Mr. Perry!After the movies went out for drinks.I tried a new drink call What she's having.If you like fruity drinks than this is the drink for you.


I AM NOT TIPSY!!

Crocheting:
I have been working on Ms Shorty.I ran into some gauging problems with her.I had to take her down four times before I finally got the gauge right.I might have to put her down for a while so I can get started with some Christmas gifts.Yes it is that time again.



Ms Shorty!This is the sleeve.

Well that's it for me you all have a great day!!
