Blue Floral – M6991 / S1373

Hi hunnies!! I hope you all are having a great week , if not we are almost there so..
 HANG IN THERE !!!
Hopefully this colorful outfit will brighten your day 🙂 .
So! Ive seen a TON of pictures circulating on line of this crisscross shirt with a longer back ..
 I really loved the look so I decided to try it myself!
The pattern that I chose for the top was M6991

I chose it for obvious reasons, It has exactly the look that I wanted!! 
All I had to do was add length to the \”tail and take away the pocket… NOW if you choose to make this shirt you can add the pocket but I chose not to. 

The shirt was SUPER easy to make ..everything came together to easy! 
  This shirt cost about 9.99 to make .. 
The fabric I used was a stretch knit that I found on the remnants table at Joann\’s It took about two yards of fabric with the extension on the back

I will be making more of these in the future…. Maybe in a size smaller 🙂

The pants where made from pattern S1373

These pants have to be the easiest pants I have ever made .. they took maybe 20 minutes and that was mainly because of a few adjustments I made.  I added 4 inches to the pants leg and took away some of the width in the leg to make it more of a skinny pant. 

Next time I plan on adding a zipper so that I can get a snugger fit around the waist without stretching the fabric while getting in and out of the pants.

 I also plan on taking a few inches out of the crotch area to get a sleeker look . 
Overall I like how the pants turned out . This was my first time working with a stretch denim and I loved it … the pants feel great!!
Until Next time loves !!! 
XOXOXOXO
