Blue and white striped chevron dress

I got this fabric at the National City Swap Meet. My favorite. You know I love that place. I actually got this fabric from my first trip and I got around to making something from it. I have this pink tunic dress that I wore in the first 24 day challenge and I wanted to make something similar. It's such a comfortable style dress.

I made a chevron in the front. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be! When I tried to do it before I couldn't understand why it was so difficult. Then I realized that when I cut it on the bias, I was trying to pin it back together...not form a chevron but just regular stripes. DUH! Ha

I did horizontal stripes in the back.
(want to look at my butt? I know  you do.) 

 I bound the sleeves and neckline in bias strips I made. 
It was easy. And my husband said that's his favorite part. :)

And just for fun because I'm into these right
now and I think they are hilarious:

Sooo, I kinda fizzled out with the 24 day Challenge

I think the title of this post says it all. I kinda just fizzled out. I was into, but then I got behind, and then life kinda happened and before I knew it, it was over. But I'm okay with that. I did quite a few and so I'm happy with that. The last thing I wanted to post about was this:

Its from this post on Freckles in April. Her imitation is on the left. It honestly never crossed my mind to have red pants. But now I want them. I need them. Can  I sew them? Probably not. I'll be on the look out though. The husband thinks I'm crazy. I think he thinks half the stuff I wear is crazy.  Probably. But imma get these if the chance arises.

She recommends Pintrest for inspiration. I like Pintrest but I always forget about it. It's too much work for me. Hahah, but seriously- it kinda is. To find stuff that you like. And then it becomes overwhelming after a while with the millions of things to look at. Beautiful overload.
