Glitter

Every Monday I do bad movie night with some friends. Usually its very casual sometimes I even wear my jammies but Saturday I got new shoes and I had to dress up. I made everyone else dress up too.

I really like this skirt its flirty and a nice color. The tag says it's Giorgio Armani and I scored it for $4!
I love these shoes. The glitter, the heel and bow are so perfect. My friend said they look like they came from a fairy tale.

Progress

Remember that leopard suit I'm making? Well I'm making some progress.
I'm using Butterick 5614 for the pants and McCall's 6172 for the jacket. I'm leaving off the pockets. It took a while to cut and underline everything. My underlining is a beautiful white cotton suiting from Mood. I have extra of that. My main fabric is a sheer polyester. I don't have any extra of that I almost ran out making the pants. I think it's because when cutting that I was doing a single layer instead of double but I'll talk more about that later.
This is the jacket so far. I need to shorten the sleeves.
I'm not doing any seam finishes inside the jacket since it'll be lined.
My lining fabric is a Marc Jacobs polyester from Mood. It was $4 a yard. I thought it added some fun pattern but was subtle. My buttons are a basic black. I'm going to cut out the lining on my day off. I like to break up my cutting because I find it pretty tedious.
For the pants seams I'm catch stitching which was tricky at first; I couldn't get the little x's to form but I'm slowly getting better.I'll have plenty of seams to do.
