On Sunday I always make a HUGE breakfast, my Sunday breakfasts are legendary. My DD got me a waffle iron for my birthday and we loved the waffles she said it was just like "The Waffle House". I think they were better than the waffle house but no one would accuse me of being modest. My DS had to work so he missed breakfast but I made him a waffle when he got home, now he wants to learn how to make them, he cooks much better than my DD.
Nope, I didn't forget the little pat of butter in the middle of the grits lol.
Then I had the rest of the day to sew and I was in the zone, I finished this pair of khaki pants to go with the ruffle blouse and vest. I am very pleased with the way they came out, I used McCalls 5710 I cut a size 14 and they fit very well. I will post a picture wearing the entire outfit at a later date. I didn't have any problems with this pattern which further put me in the zone so I thought I may as well finish this pair of black pants that have been cut out for about 6 months. I was on a roll so I stopped at Hancock Fabrics to get some material to make the shirt that would put an end to my zoning.
Here is a close up of the zipper, the pattern called for a zipper and hook and eye closure.
I made this vest as well, it's done using Lion Brand Jiffy Mohair Look yarn that I got on sale at JoAnn's for .50, I went a little crazy that day. I didn't use a pattern I just went for it and I'm very please with the way it came out. I used double ended crochet hooks for the neck and bottom trim, it gives a really nice clean edge to the trim. The pants are from a pattern I've had for at least 10 years so I'm sure it's out of print it's McCalls 7076 they are drawstring pants
on the pattern but I just wanted simple elastic waist with side pockets. The blouse is RTW.
The offending blouse is McCall's M5536 which http://lesalicious.blogspot.com/ Lesa made look so easy I got a really cute black and white print knit at Hancocks and was sure I would be wearing it today, instead I am sitting here ripping out stitches trying to get it right, oh well it was a good run.
