Camo Tank Dress & School Jacket Downsize (In-Progress)!

Jesus Predicts His Death a Third Time

"Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them,
  “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death  and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”

Matthew 20:17-19

 Happy Monday everybody!:) Easter is coming up & The Case For Christ just came out in theatres this past weekend. (hoping to see it soon!). "Based on the true story of an award-winning investigative journalist -- and avowed atheist -- who applies his well-honed journalistic and legal skills to disprove the newfound Christian faith of his wife... with unexpected, life-altering results." 

I was very excited to hear that one of my favourite books had been made into a movie!! I've been told that its a quite faithful adaptation (yay!). There's a Documentary based on the book thats on Youtube as well. So good!:D

    I have several projects on the go (and many more in my head, lol:). I just finished this latest version of McCalls 6886 in this cute camo print! I think I'll get tons of wear out of it come summer! I made it a tank dress this time. I made a neck band the same way as my floral version. I also added bands around the armholes too. I sewed a line of basting stitches around the armholes (partly to prevent the fabric from stretching out of shape, and partly to mark the line, so I could quickly cut away the SA). I wanted to try on the dress to make sure I wasn't cutting away too much fabric. Maybe it was my fabric choice (the camo is very light-weight ribbed knit from Atlantic Fabrics), but I had to adjust the shoulders to better fit me.

My floral version:)



     I think the straps of this tank are perfect! The coverage is full enough that I don't have to worry about bra straps showing (drives me crazy!).

     I've decided to pare down my old School Jacket! I *love* this jacket and I wore it ALL the time (even inside the house, lol).
  I totally look pregnant in this photo (I'm not!). My buff brother (5' 11")  was over the other day and this jacket fit him perfectly! Its a size Medium, but I think its unisex sizing! My husband took these shots right after my dress photos & joked that we could fit our whole family in this jacket:p

I'd like to wear this again, but I'm totally not into the oversize style. It needs a makeover! Praying I don't ruin it (I already cut into it). I'll do a more thorough post once I'm done. I think I've been watching too many "Thrifted Transformation" videos on Youtube, lol!

  Well, thanks for stopping by! Til next time!:)
