So the amazingly talented Alida from Alida Makes started a sewing series called "Sew the Show" where each month she chooses a show from Netflix and challenges you to create something inspired by the character. This month she chose The Honorable Woman starring Maggie Gyllenhaal. Her style is very classic and simplistic.


I was going to make a blouse and wide leg trousers, but being a suburban stay-at-home mom of three I realized that I would never wear them! And the other top I tried was a hot mess! So, I chose to make a loose camisole blouse and a simple wrap skirt, I'm sure I can find a way to incorporate them into my mommy wardrobe! I very rarely sew things for myself, so this was definitely a challenge, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Pardon the horrible pictures!




Baby girl wanted to get in on the fun too!




MORE TOMORROW! This mommy is sleepy!




I submitted my looks to Project Run & Play with 35 minutes to spare! Whew! This month's challenge was to use Living with Punks Mademoiselle Tee tutorial. It's a great tutorial for those beginning with sewing knits.

Crazy me decided to do two looks because I wanted to show that the tutorial could be casual or fancy with just a few tweaks. For my casual look I wanted to make something that my daughter could wear any day, so I made a tunic, jacket and leggings. I wish I was her size and could borrow it!



I found a XXL men's hoodie and XL leggings in the clearance section at Target {my happy place} and upcycled them into these pieces.

The before...she was not impressed.




I drafted the leggings from a pair she owned, the fabric is so silky, she actually slept in them!





And apparently they are good for back bends...


The jacket was made from the men's hoodie. I used the Mademoiselle Tee tutorial, but I cut the front to include the zipper and made it wider then a tee shirt. I also added sleeves and made the neck casing wider to make a collar. I love how it turned out. 







However, my favorite piece is the tunic. I'm going to make one for myself. I just love it. I used the tutorial, but cut the sides at an angle, lengthened it and made the hem a high-low silhouette. 






Baby sister photobomb!



I found a quote from Shake it Off by Taylor Swift {be careful, the song will get stuck in your head!}, and if you know my daughter the quote fits her personality PERFECTLY! I used my Silhouette machine to cut it out, ironed it on and fell in love! 





And since I can't make up my mind ever....




I love how the look turned out, hopefully it will make top 10 and I can harass you all for votes, because I know you love that!!
