Sew Back Thursday... Finishing up...

Hey Everyone!!
I'm here with another SBT. Yes, Sew Back Thursday.. 
I had these in my closet for about 2 1/2 years. Yes, that's just how long it's been. I got a little frustrated with them because all of the unraveling. So politely took them off my machine, got a hanger out of my closet, hung their butts up and placed them on the back of the door. 
I glanced at them from time to time but just wasn't ready to deal. 
Plus, I fall out love with PEPLUMS a minute ago. 
I just don't like them anymore, but trust and believe I will wear the hell out of this set.

I told myself that I would get at least 2 garments finished a month. I know, I know your saying. 2 a month, that's not alot. Trust me it's alot or me because. I have about 10 or more garments to needs finishing, plus things in-between. 

Please forgive me.. 
My pattern matching wasn't up to par and still honing my craft..

I really recommend you trying it, especially for a beginners.

I don't know if you can see the pleats but they look sew sassy on.

Peplum needs to be attached.

Peplum, this material really gave me the blues with all of the fraying.

Hemmed Peplum 

Tip from me, make sure you stay stitch to prevent from continuous fraying.  

All done, again sorry about the not matching patterns.

On this day particular day I walk right passed it then turned my head to the right and in a split second. Like a child a running across the street without o any guidance. I was hit by this fabric. I was soo overjoyed, I couldn't stop talking to the lady who cut my fabric. She just smiled and nodded, she was probably thinking I was some crazy person.  I DID NOT CARE!!!! 😁😁
