|Thanks Mimi for the link for the necklace loves it!|
By golly wow! I think I have really caught the Pintrest bug. I've had an account for a moment ,but never really and truly used it as intended, or even enjoyed it for that matter. That is, until now! I am totally hooked, hooked I tell ya! LOL... I even got my mama hooked lol! Okay, back to the schedule post: "M6559 Well, sort of."

|I cut out the underlining fabric first so that I could cut|
my fashion fabric on a single layer to ensure the stripes
lined up properly...
I was browsing around the Internet this morning and happened to stumble across this wonderful striped tank from Madison and LA for 62.00 dollars. Umm.. absolutely not! I remembered that I had a yard of fabric left over from my Mission Maxi dress and got to work! I forgot to mention that when I made the Mission Maxi dress that I underlined the entire dress. I knew going in that I would have to do the same thing for this tank top, seeing that I used the exact same fabric. Making M6559 into a racer back tank was easy as pie! I just basically measured the pattern at where I wanted the hem to fall and that was that. I used pattern piece D and E (racer back) attached binding to the arm and neckline, having to sacrifice an old RTW dress. The movers packed up our things last week and I don't have my stash. We are basically living out our suitcases right now! However, I did have the privilege of having my machines express shipped to Texas woo hoo! So you know what that means right? A few more weeks to get some sewing done before head stateside!
|Really love this tank! It's so comfy....|
|Did I say I love this tank :)|
Well ladies that's my time! I have some other things to show you hopefully later on this week so stay tuned for that...As always, Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
