Hello Everyone! While I was having my quiet time this morning, a thought provoking question came to mind. “What do people see when they look at me?” I’m not referring to the physical, but the spiritual. As a Christian woman I want others to see a lifestyle that reflects the truth of God’s Word. I want to think, speak, and walk in a manner that demonstrates His presence in my life. While I’m not perfect, and never will be in this life, that’s no excuse for me to just go through life on cruise control. Rather, because of who He is and what He has done, I want to strive to be my absolute best self. In the process, I want others to see Him and be drawn to Him. It is in Him, and through Him, and for Him that I live. May this be what they see.
3-Piece Suit – Scuba Knit
Today’s look is a 3-Piece Suit that I made using scuba knit fabric. I’ve noticed the sew sisters using this fabric so I wanted to give it a try. It was easy to sew with, but I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I’d like to try it with a pleated skirt or dress next time. I really like the pants paired with the jacket. I’d prefer a longer length on the skirt, however, I decided to try the shorter length due to the design. I used three different patterns (listed below) to create this look. I opted for a different pants pattern than the one that comes with the jacket simply because it’s my favorite pattern for pants right now. Unfortunately, this pattern is “out-of-print.” However, you may still be able to find it on Amazon or Ebay. These pants are super easy to sew. There’s no waist band and the flared legs offer just the right amount of width at the bottom to complement this jacket. Now, let’s talk about the color. Oh My Goodness!!! I’m loving this bright and beautiful turquoise color. It’s so vibrant and makes me feel happy.
