Long time no see! I hope you enjoyed National Sewing Month last month and did a whole bunch of sewing. I did a decent amount of sewing, although I took a break from blogging.
I wanted to share one of my recent most projects with you. It is high waisted pencil skirt made in a thin scuba knit fabric I found at Joann’s Fabric last simmer. I remember falling in love with the fabric and purchasing the entire bolt.
This was made without a pattern because it really is that simple of a garment. This was a 20-minute project but has been so useful. I have worn this skirt at least 4 times in the last month.
I paired the skirt with this ruffled tank I made last year
Here is the fabric:

Still can't believe I found this goodness at my local @joann_stores . Loved it so much I bought the entire bolt. Figure hugging pencil skirt currently in progress! ✂️✂️💗💗💗👗👗👗 #fabric #fabricaddict #fashiondesign #fashion #animalprint #sewing #isew #memade #fashionblogger #joannsfabric #diy #pencilskirt
I did not use a pattern but I traced around this skirt I already own and LOVE.
The skirt was so easy to sew. I have only side seams which I serged up in no time. The bottom hem was serged then stitched.
Here is the back view.
And now for my mini announcement:
There’s a little munchkin in this belly! I’m going to be a mamma again!
These pics were taken about a month ago! I am just now getting the energy to blog about it!
I have so many garments I made that I have not shared on the blog yet. Some are from the summer, and some from just last month. I’ll try to play catch up here soon now that I am feeling better. Know that I have missed you, my sewing friends. I have recently cleared off my drafting table and starting downsizing my studio. I am trying to give away fabric and notions I don’t use to my students and keep on hand just what I need for the next few projects. At least that is my hope.
I’m currently teaching sewing with knits at school and it has been such a fun class to teach! I’ll share some student projects with you over the quarter!
Take care and I’ll see you with my next sewing project!
