I think I'm going to make it. One more outfit before PJ time this weekend. Here are my fabrics. I am making another separates ensemble. The black fabric was listed as a rayon gabardine and came from FFC. I have my doubts about the fabric content, but am happy with how it looks, feels, and drapes. The animal print is a polyester satin charmeuse from Fabric.com. The black fabric has already been transformed into this:
The skirt pattern is from the Burda Style 12/2009 issue, just like my last dress. The blouse will be a bit more complicated as I am using three different patterns to achieve my desired look. Let's hope it works out or you may only be seeing the skirt! How about a tranquil shot to close out the night or to awaken the day...may it be a peaceful one.

My name is Shannon, but my siblings call me Mushy... I am a 44 year old wife and mom. I started sewing in junior high or high school on my mom's Viking. I had an amazing Home Economics teacher who taught me solid techniques. By my junior year, I had sewn a Vogue Bellville Sassoon dress, rated "advanced" for prom. Sewing runs in the family. I was bound to catch the "bug". I hope to inspire you to pursue your sewing interests as I have been inspired by others in the sewing community to pursue mine. Thanks for visiting!
