Hey everyone, this is week I created a Summer Vintage look using two Simplicity Patterns. For the top I used Simplicity 1426 view D and Simplicity Pattern 1559 view D for the skirt.I had to alter the skirt and the top at the side seams by 1 inch to get the perfect. Also, for the skirt I used an 7 inch invisible zipper instead of a regular zipper at the center back. Those were the only changes I made for this d.i.y, and I’m pretty happy with the results.

Sewing this two piece was very easy and fun and I just love the sunflower print fabric. Summer will be over soon, so I’m sewing my last few projects I had plan for the season. Make sure your subscribed to stay updated on my latest post, thank you for the support. Here is my Vintage Two Piece D.I.Y :
Summer is coming to an end and it’s still hot as hell in Southern California. This week I made a third swimsuit using my favorite Vogue patterns V9192. I’ve sewn all the views in this pattern except view C.
The view I’ve sewn this week is View A & D, with the same fabric I used for view B. Sewing this D.I.Y was pretty easy and I enjoyed creating my first bikini. I would normally prefer one piece bathing suit, I haven’t worn a bikini since I was a teen. But this Vogue bikini is amazing and I love how it fits my figure, its very easy to sew.
I made View A & F last month a few days before vacation in Kauai, Hawaii.
The fabric for this D.I.Y is the same sparkle blue knit material I used for the d.i.y cardigan. Next Summer I’ll be sewing View C for the first time and view A & F again.
Today I’m wear McCall’s M7349 with my D.I.Y Pineapple print bucket bag. The dress I’m wearing is one of my favorite McCall patterns I made it twice last year ( Peach Dress). So I went to Walmart and purchased 2 yards of pineapple print fabric because its a Summer fruit and one of my favorites. I made my first bucket bag using a free tutorial on Youtube by Lejanaro Barnes and made matching earrings. There is one thing I love most about my style and it’s how I match accessories. When ever a bag is made I make sure to create matching earrings and vice versa. Yes, I make jewelry and its a little challenging but fun. Had a quick photo-shoot before work.😊😁 Here is my OOTD:
