Sunday Best

I have decided to use up my fabric stash(made of up poor quality/cheap purchases made throughout the past few years) by making an outfit to wear to church each Sunday. Last week I wore a skirt and top I made from Simplicity Threads 2758 , view E and Butterick B5357. I used a grey double knit(purchased form Fabric Mart) for the skirt and a multi-colored sheer(purchased from Jomar's) for the top. And a self drafted tank made from the skirt material for modesty.
I am totally happy with the skirt but the next time I make the top I will have to figure out different way to insert the elastic, it looked a little home made(however, when I told some of the congregation that I made it they were surprised).
I think by the time I work my way through the stash my sewing skills will have greatly improved.

My home computer is acting up so I will have to post pictures when I can.

Next up:
A dress made from Simplicity 3622 view C w/ view A sleeves, in a black and white sheer stretch fabric that I underlined with a black stretch nylon I purchased from Jomar's here in Philly. Hopefully I will finish it by Sunday!
