Grey & Brown with a Little Bling
When there's not much time to sew, why not use stretch and pre-embellished fabrics to speed up your project.
Shown here in poly/rayon jersey is View B of #203 Wrap Jacket/Blouse. In this version, the fabric's super stretchiness allowed for some time saving variations.
I eliminated all the facings, serged the raw edges, then turned and top stitched all around. In place of buttons, I threaded a sparkly buckle onto the tie extension then anchored the extensions to the torso darts with machine stitching.
A rectangle of silk devoré cut on the bias for a scarf creates a finishing accessory.
The Straight Skirt #501 is normally tea length (just above the ankle) but here I shortened it from the waistline a few inches to show a little more leg. If you’re just getting into sewing or simply want a fast project, this skirt is one of the easiest designs from Petite Plus Patterns. In this example, View A of the skirt went together even faster by using a pre-embellished knit that required no hemming.
