Graduation Outfit: KS338, S7082 & NL6470
I always wait until the eleventh hour to complete a project. I knew the date, a month ago, of my son's graduation. I knew what I wanted to make. The vision was so clear in my mind, that the outfit should have sewn itself. I waited until May 27 to pull out the fabric. The ceremony was on May 28. At 8am! I started sewing about 2am. Of course, I couldn't get the blouse finished. The clock was ticking. At 5am, I set aside the blouse (there was no way I was going to set the sleeves, press, yada, yada, yada by 6) and put elastic in the waist and serged the hem of the skirt. I serged the hem of my gele and pulled out my trusty KS Twist Top (3378) I had made earlier in the week. Cowries, makeup and heels on, we were out the door by 6:30! Last night I finished the top. I am determined not to have any UFO's this year. I thought the pattern of the fabric may be "too much" but I love it as is. I am going to make this skirt at least one more time.
