Bank Holiday Weekend Sewing Skirt and Top

I have enjoyed this bank holiday weekend. Great weather and managed to have time to sew too.

 

 

AW Recycled top 2

Really pleased with the top – I adapted a pattern (Butterick B6136) but cut up, patched and used 3 stretch viscose dresses that had hardly been worn and were about to go to charity. Now I have a lovely new top that I love. The beaded decoration was also reused – cut from a very old top past it’s best. I love to recycle.

 

AW Recycled top 1

These vest style long dresses were comfy but the style really did not suit my larger figure curves – so I only ever wore them around the house

 

 

AW Velour Skirt

The skirt is one of my favourite makes from stretch ‘burn out’ velour. I didn’t use a pattern for this one.
