Maxi to pencil skirt!

So I got this maxi skirt over the summer and wore it once out here in HI but I couldn't walk in it because my strides are new yorker sized. After I figured I wouldn't wear it anymore I decided to make it into a skirt using this pattern.
I wanted to make the pencil skirt and see how it would come out. It was relatively easy. The only thing that took me a while was cutting one side of the skirt open and placing the pattern pieces so they would fit on. I placed the bottom of the skirt pattern at the bottom hemmed part of the maxi skirt so I wouldn't have to hem again! Yay less work! This is the before......
And here's the after!!
The back...I didn't have a zipper so I just extended the waistband so I could make it tie.
I just love that last pic because you can really see the color and print well. I really love wearing this skirt around. It is so lightweight and perfect for the weather around here in HI. My sewing class final is tonight and we are having a fashion show!! I will post some pics of that and my final project soon! Enjoy your tuesday!

Awesome News!

Well you all know how I was depressed about my Jeffrey Campbell's gone missing??!
Well guess what random package showed up after a month of being unable to be found??! Yep that's right!! My package came with all the things that I had been waiting for! Kevin and I practically shredded the box to make sure the shoes were there! And they were! Oh my goodness can I tell you how happy I was they were safe and sound! Now I know they are just shoes, but Kevin bought them for me before we were even engaged and we promised we would save them for our wedding! So yes I had my shoes WAY before the dress!
Other than that, life has been pretty good! Midterms are over and now the final last stretch of school is underway! I started listening to Christmas music yesterday...Is that really bad?? Kevin and I saw Christmas candy in Foodland yesterday! They had 2 pound reeses cups...AMAZING!!
Here's to a happy weekend!! Have a good one everyone! Stay warm you east coasters!
