Holiday Outfits

Made From G Street Fabrics 'Treasure Hunt' Room-2.97 yard

Scarf is just a leftover strip of fabric from another black glitter woven fabric with an accordian pleat - found in the 'Treasure Hunt Room' 2.97 a yard

The Red Jacket is the Free Flowing Cardigan Pattern:
Shortened 6 inches so it can be used with dresses or pants.  I am 5'2".

The dress is using one of my old faithful easy-quick dress patterns, but this Flowy Ribknit makes it look different.

Adjustment of neckline to make it higher, since the fabric was soo stretchy and I was going to use the infinity scarf-turtle neck look

Silver Glitter Rib Knit Found

This looks like a turtle neck, but the dress has a regular neckline with a bias strip top band and there is an infinity scarf made separately from this pattern:

Gold and Black Glitter Chiffon with Gold and Yellow Glitter Sweater Knit for Shirt and Gold Glitter Poinsetta Pants on Yellow

Beautiful Gold Cut Velvet Burnout and Sweetheart Neckline Black Glitter Knit with Black Stretch Lace Attached Tunic and Crepe Stretch Pants

The Top is the freeflowing Cardigan, the Pants are my regular 20 minute tubins'  The top is made by combining two patterns and sewing the front body piece of lace onto the glitter knit cut from the sweetheart neckline top.  I was able to leave the scallop edge on the bottom of the tunic and made little slits on each side of the lace.  The pieces were only sewn together at the sweetheart neckline and the side seams so the lining was shorter and let the lace show well at the bottom and the neckline.   Sleeves were the glitter knit without lace, but the back of the shirt was attached to the glitter knit at the lower part of the yoke.  The 'Lacy Look' for the holidays and evenings.

Old Faithful 20 minute tubin' pants by using this comfy pattern and making the legs wider so they are not tight like leggins....Can look professional but be leggin comfy at the waist.
