Happy Wednesday everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend and Resurrection Sunday. Unfortunately, mine didn’t turn out the way I had planned. My husband ended up in the ER for seizures on Sunday just before dinner. He was discharged early the next morning and ended up back there that evening, then discharged again. After seeing a Neurologist on Tuesday, I learned that the seizures are a side effect of the tumor. A few medications were changed and he’s resting well at home. This round of seizures have affected him differently than in the past. He’s not talking much and stares to the right most of the time.
Through it all I continue to stand in my faith, knowing that God is in control. My husband doesn’t look well, but I refuse to lose hope. As long as he’s breathing I will continue to believe God for his healing. God always has the final word. Therefore, I stand by my man with a steadfast faith and carry on.
I had originally planned on showing two pieces today, but since my husband came home I just haven’t had much time to sew. Also, I wanted to add three additional items to the Collection after this piece. However, due to limited time, I’ll be adding only one more piece next week and then closing the Collection. I plan to sew other Collections in the future. For now, I’ll continue sewing only as time allows.
I added this basic t-shirt to the Collection because every casual wardrobe needs one. I used New Look 6458, which is the same pattern I used in my Beginner’s Sewing Course HERE. I love this pattern, first because it’s easy enough to be sewn up in about an hour with no instructions. I also love it because of the longer length. I used a thin jersey from my stash that I picked up from the Michael Levine Loft over a year ago. Here are FABRIC OPTIONS. I paired it with Piece #6 from the Collection, the leggings. I don’t usually wear leggings out in public without a long shirt, but I feel comfortable with the coverage this t-shirt provides.
Click on the links below if you’ve missed the other pieces in the Collection. Also, make sure you check back next week because I’ll show you how I mix and match all the pieces to create more outfits. If you want to play along, see how many outfits you come up with. It should be fun. Who knows? Someone may come up with an outfit that I miss.
- Pieces 1 & 2 – Turtleneck Top & Joggers
- Pieces 3 & 4 – Bodysuit & High Waist Pencil Skirt
- Pieces 5, 6 & 7 – Hooded Tunic, Leggings, & Pencil Skirt
- Piece #8 – Knit Dress with side slits
Thanks for stopping by!
Remember: When you live in your DESIGN, it is from there that God SHINES!
