Did you see this live performance of And Then The Girls yet? It features a sequin top I made out of the fabric I bought in NYC a few months back.

Adventures in Sewing: Chapter 2

I know you are all dying to know how my sewing projects are coming along…. You’re thinking, “Has she done anything with the fancy new fabric she bought in NYC yet??”  Well I won’t keep you in suspense any longer!  I present to you my very first pair of leggings:

I am quite shocked that I actually managed to pull it off.  And I am amazed at how simple it was.  I found a tutorial online that just had you trace out your own pattern based on your measurements.  Sew 2 seams, add a waistband, hem the bottoms, and voila!

Of course I act like it was so simple now, but my boyfriend will tell you that things got a little tense between the sewing machine and me during the waistband assembly part.  But I survived and ended up with a pair of fun, extremely comfortable pants!  Overall success!

Fabric from the garment district in NYC!  I can’t wait to get back to the sewing machine. Stay tuned for Adventures in Sewing: Chapter 2!
