Hey there everyone! I hope you are enjoying your Memorial day weekend if you are in the States. I really wanted to sew this weekend, but life just somehow got in the way. I did manage to cut out this pattern S1418. I shared this pic on Instagram on Sunday...

I'm unsure of the fabric that I wanted to use, because I picked up this gorgeous linen fabric in an ethnic print colorway this weekend from Jo-Ann's. It's either between the black and white linen or my this gorgeous red, cotton blend fabric, seeing that I am really digging the color "red" at the moment!
I did do a quick tissue fit and saw that I needed to add length to the hem. I added 2" to the hem and 1" to the waist seam, also adding 1/2 to the side seams.
This looks kinda of rough, but I wanted to see how having the pleats in would possibly look. I also wanted to make sure that I had enough room on the side seams, so I made sure to add 1/2" and if I don't need it, then cool beans!
That's all that's going on with me today, and hopefully I can start sewing today, fingers crossed!
~Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
