Forty ’til 40 //Simplicity 8059 w/ Simplicity 8222

Have you ever been in a fabric store and heard the fabric call your name?  Well, it happened to me.  When I tell you, I was in the fabric store browsing and I kept hearing my name “Tisa…Tisa…look down here”?  I glanced down and saw this yellow/black and white knit fabric…It was O.V.E.R….Over………

Look #10 goes to my most favorite duster!! When I seen the fabric I knew right away it was a duster. I love when the fabric speaks to me and tells me what it wants to be. It makes my sewing adventure so much easier.


I wanted to wear this duster during the summer because of the bright yellow color.  So I decided not to add sleeves to it.  Winning!!


Now let me tell you what sold the deal for me with this duster. These SHOES!!!  I was like SERIOUSLY???  I had the perfect shoes in my closet to match this duster. At that point, I knew this outfit was for me….LOL



The jeans are Mimi G Simplicity 8222.  I made these jeans about 2 years ago.  I thought it would be cute to add some sequin patches so I did.  It was my first time making jeans, so it took me a little while to get the fit the way I like my jeans. But once I did, I loved them.




Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I did.  I can’t wait to see you again.


Much love and many blessings!
